Hi, I have a DM7x and is it possible to make the dual zone toms to single zone? I am planning on using it for extra cymbal pads because hitting the edge of the dual zone pads doesnt make me comfortable.

Looking forward to your replies.

Thanks!

Hi Jake,

Thanks for posting. 

While it's not possible to physically convert the dual-zone pads to single-zone, if you're using the tom pads as cymbal pads, you can trigger them as a single zone by connecting them to the module with TS cables. 

I hope this helps!

I have a question about this. Nitro module and dm7x module are practicaly the same. In my nitro mesh kit the tom toms are 1 zone pads and the snake cable is the same like the dm7x module. In tom cables the 1/4 jack have 2 rings, like a connector for 2 zone tom. My question is, Can I add a y ts cable to these tom connections and expand my nitro mesh kit??

Yes, you might be able to do this. However, this is not officially supported.
