It didn't take me long to realize GH drum kits are cheap crap ( especially the cymbals ) and not to spend a cent on another one.
I use an electronic drum kit, plugged into the body of the GH drum kit via a MIDI cable. I also had to wire the ride cymbal and snare separately because my kit does not have programmable MIDI settings.
My setup is wired like this;
(not the MIDI note numbers if you end up doing this and getting a kit with programmable MIDI)
Red Pad: Note 38 - my kit has no match, wired from snare plug on GH kit
Yellow Pad: Note 46 - hi-hat
Blue Pad: Note 48 - tom 1
Green Pad: Note 45 - tom 2
Orange Pad: Note 49 - my kit has no match, wired from ride cymbal on GH kit
Purple Pad (Kick Pedal): Note 36 - tom 3
I would not pay that much anyhow but thanks for the concern. It took five year until my drums broke. My drums got fixed today (again),and I expect them to work for at-most 2 days. I will soon get electronic drums soon. I hope to get to the top ten on the LB of some song. I am 30th on Gamma Ray (GH5), 35th on Move It On Over and 84th on Been Caught Steeling (GH6).
Any idea of which electronic drums or best for GH? I know so far that Yamaha,Alesis,Roland and Ddrum's are pretty good.
