Greetings all,

Picked up a Strike Pro last month from a rich dude running quickly away from Phoenix (I didn't ask...).

Playing out hard last night...snare died a sudden death.

Head was fine/intact, rim seemed to trigger, but not well. No response at all in center or at 4" or 6"...WTF?!

Pulled her apart and lookie what I found:

Oh man.

finished today reverse eng session, with the conclusion that the piezo needs to be able to generate at least 140 V peak to peak, when hit wit a powerfull hit.

I was able to replace the center part with a single piezo that has a foam cone and now the center is awesome...
i will try to glue 3 more piezo's in a equal sides triangle in such a way that it should pick up the vibrations around the center...
I will add details here when i finish, maybe this info will help anyone improve there strike snare assembly...
Until then this appears to be the piezo wiring schematic:
PS: sorry for the bad hand writing...

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Alesis strike pro snare durability problem..

I'm sure you've heard of problems with the Snare durability of the Alice Strike pro drum set. I know that this defect has been corrected in the recently released version of Alice Strike Pro SE. The question is whether the alesis strike pro has also been modified. I recently purchased the alesis Strike Pro and will receive the delivery soon. I am worried that I learned about the durability of the snare not long ago. Can I use it without worrying? Or should I still tape the plate?

All things considered, though I don't play gigs with mine (it doesn't tavel and get knocked around), I play it every day, for about an hour a day. My snare has not exhibited any problems whatsoever. The kit is now 2 yrs old.

My hi hat and ride, different story... :)

I had this issue on a purchased set. Snare trigger plate was cracked. I did realize that the 14” Tom is identical except for mounting hardware, and it was in much better shape. So at least I get one do-over by swapping shells. I added the tape, freed up the wire through the foam, and Tom-converted snare is better. Tape repair made the Tom usable, and I may replace the trigger some day on that one.
