Axis E-Kit Toturial

If the problem persists, try replacing the cables.

I've never repaired one so I don't know if their single or double coil wrapped.

If it uses the stereo 1/4" it could also indicate one contact for the left and one for the right pickup coil. One coil on each pickup indicating the two contacts on the plug could be one contact for each pickup. Also stereo input for the module.

Re: DTX:Axis


eKit Triggers

This is a typical wiring diagram. Instead of a Rim Piezo and a CYM Piezo, picture two separate eKit Triggers. One connects to the tip and the other to the ring.
The sleve goes through the cable into a stereo jack at the module. I hope this makes sense.

If it does please explain it to me.

Re: DTX:Axis


When i asked the seller of the Yamaha DTXpress if the inputs were Mono or Stereo he told me that the only stereo input was the HiHat input.

As a retired electronics engineer I'm telling you that he knows not what he is selling.

The trigger cable contains a splitter to route the 2 separate cables into one stereo jack at the module. What you actually have is two signals coming from two triggers and going into a stereo jack at the module left and right. This ain't rocket science, it only take basic electronics and that's 90% logic and 10% common sense. I think that he sold you the wrong cable if it's mono. You have to use stereo cables all the way.

I'm sure your troubles will be over after you do this.
