IHi, I have a Yamaha DTxtreme Drum Control Module - first…

Customer Question
I have a Yamaha...

I have a Yamaha DTxtreme Drum Control Module - first generation purchased in 2001

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Yamaha instrument? What have you tried so far?

One of the volume sliders (tomtom) doesn't work and when I turn the knob to scroll through items like different instruments of volume control on a voice it doesn't work very well unless I turn very slowly

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Instrument Expert to know before I connect you?

No - I'm just looking for advice on repair/refurbish

Hello my name is ***** ***** I am a Yamaha certified technician. The problem you are having is very common in a unit of this age. The first thing is to try cleaning those controls. Use some spray contact cleaner ( do not use WD40) work it into the control and then work the control to clean it. The second thing to try is to open the unit up and resolder the connections to them. The third action would be to replace the controls. Let me know what you find out.
