Customer Question
I have a td-8...

I have a td-8 V drum set that I am having a problem with making an adjustment so that the "cross stick" function will work just like an acoustic. If you tap the head lightly it goes into cross stick. Also visa versa if you hit the rim too hard it goes into snare mode. I am using the Jazz XS # 213 to try to accomplish this. Please let me if this is feasible using this module. Thanks for any help you can give me. Rick

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your instrument?

Roland TD-8 V Drums

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

Since I bought the kit. 2005. I purchased it used. I have tried making adj"s with tuning, sensitivity, velocity and factory reset. I think I've tried everything the book recommends and I still cannot seem to find out the problem.

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

Yes I would like to know if this module is capable of giving you a snare that has "throw off " function as well. I noticed a separate option but it does not look as though you can combine it with cross stick and snare functions.

Thank you Harry, I would first like to know if you can answer my question with a solution. I did not appreciate finding out that after I agreed to a $5 payment that I would be charged an additional $23 fee. If you can help me make the necessary adjustments to my kit, I would be more than happy to receive your help, otherwise I feel I am wasting my time and money.
