So, I want to be able to choke my cymbals an I have the DM6 kit. Ive already looked at some chokeable cymbals and found shit thats in my budjet, the first problem is that, I would need TRS cables so that the cable can even send the information to the module, but the dm6 has a cable snake/harness. So there are a few questions I want to know: 1. can the dm6 module even respond to choking a cymbal? 2. If I use the snares cable thats in the cable snake, can I attach that to the cymbal and choke like that since the snare is 2-zoned so id imagine that the cable on that is better than the rest.

Hello, Toivo

Thanks for posting!

This module does not support cymbals that choke. Typically with our modules, the cymbals that come with the original electronic kit is what's compatible. If the kit is upgrade ready, it will be for more drum and cymbal pads, not cymbals with a choke feature. 

Hope this helps!
