Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can I use the "Rock Band" 2 Cymbal Kit with a "Rock Band" 1 drum kit?A: The "Rock Band" 2 Cymbal Kit was designed for "Rock Band" 2 drum kits only and will not work with the original "Rock Band" 1 drums.Q: How do I hook up my "Rock Band" 2 Cymbal Kit to the "Rock Band" 2 drum kit?A: Connect the cable underneath the cymbal head to the ports on the back of the "Rock Band" 2 control panel. Match the port on the back of the drum kit to the same colored cymbal. Ensure the color on the cymbal jack cable corresponds to the proper drumhead and cymbal.Q: The cymbals for the "Rock Band" 2 Cymbal Kit are really loose, how can I fix this?A: Above each cymbal is a wing nut that can be adjusted for varied tension. The tighter it is, the less movement there will be for each cymbal and vice versa.Q: Will mixing the wrong colored wires for the "Rock Band" 2 Cymbal Kit damage my drums?A: No. The colors are meant as a guide to show which colors correspond to each cymbal.Q: What is the difference between hitting the drumhead and cymbals when using the "Rock Band" 2 Cymbal Kit?A: The only difference in hitting the cymbals over the drumhead for the same colored notes is the hit effect noise that is produced while playing "Rock Band" 2. There is no difference in scoring and you always have the option to hit either the cymbal or the drumhead. The preference is entirely up to the player on which area to hit (drumhead or cymbal).Q: Which area do I hit on the cymbals for them to work?A: The best location is directly in the center of the rubber area on the cymbal for ride, and the edge of the cymbal for crash, which produces a louder hit.Q: Can I hit the hard plastic area on the cymbals?A: It is not recommended and may damage them.
