    Hey all, i'M working on a project for my e drums. i have converted them into a rock band drum controller. what i need to do now is finish up and get the bass drum working the way i need it.

    The problem is that the connection for the bass drum is rigged for a reed switch which from what I've read is an on/off type switch. When the reed switch is completed by an earth magnet the bass drum triggers.

    what I want to do is hook up a piezo to the wires and use that as a trigger instead of the reed switch. the problem is that when you plug in a wire with the piezo attached the 1/8" jack doesn't recognize it at all..

    anyone who can help me i would really appreciate it as you can surely tell from my first post im an extreme beginner when it comes to this stuff.
