    Hello OK, I would like to know if the cable that goes into the dish is p10 mono and what goes in the module is p10 stereo ?


    Glue some pieces of metal to add weight to the eCymbals

    That's amazing, the sound is awesome I imagine! Not to mention SO much cheaper than an actual cymbal! Hope we see more things from you in the future!
