Good news for percussionists / handdrummers

Hi fellow SP-users,
I bought these MEINL™ Percussion Taku Hirano 13" Hand-Bales, which have a hybrid tension rim also available as a spare part at MEINL™ Percussion. They work great with the SP sensors and the training with a hand playing set!

Training handdrums with meshheads works best with very tight tuning and without damping the heads. I removed the gelpads after trying to trigger several Djembé’s in Kontakt via MIDI, and re-trained all pads of all 4 drum channels. In addition, it’s important to adapt your playing technique to SP to avoid false triggering. It’s all about trial and error, depending on the handdrum you might be using, but it’s worth it.
