I have an opportunity to play for a crusade in the country of India in August. Our church owns a DTXtremeiis, and an older DTX 2.0. The music director is close-minded to transporting the new set (for fear it would be damaged) and wants to take the old one (yuk). I would be OK with the old set if the snare was 3-zone - that's a big deal to me. One question: can the DTX 2.0 be configured to replace the 2-zone snare with a 3-zone (TP65s) model? I'm sure this can be done but not sure how to do it. I would really like to locate a source to rent/lease a DTXtremeiis while in India. We'll be in the area of Bangalore, in southern India. If anyone has ideas about pulling this off, let me know.

Stix, if you mean a DTXpress II it is capable of having a 3-zone snare since that's the way mine is set up. I think as long as you have it plugged into the snare port and have a stereo cable with the right pad you'll have the 3-zone.

That sounds pretty exciting being able to go and do worship in a church in India! How about more details and of course we'd want to see pictures when you get back!

The DTX2.0 will only trigger two zones from the snare input.

yamahammer: is there any way to use a stereo splitter and plug into the snare and extra kick input? Can it be rigged in some way?

The only time a splitter works is with the inputs that have a slash (9/10, 11/12, etc.) These inputs let you split them and run two mono pads from a single input jack and assign a different voice to each of those pads.

Will the 9/10 or 11/12 inputs take a dual trigger pad? I would think so. I could possibly add a dual trigger tom pad to the set.

Yamahammer: you stated that the DTX 2.0 will not accept a 3 zone pad. I already have one 2-zone snare pad. Can I add/replace a single zone tom with a 2 zone model?

all of the inputs labeled with a / such as 9/10, 11/12, et. can accept two single zone pads by using a splitter. They will not trigger both zones of a dual zone pad.

Thanks for the reply! It's not the answer I was hoping for, but it's the real-deal.

you could use the DTXtreme II brain and snare pad and everything else from the DTX 2.0
