    Thanks for posting!

    The pads and cymbals that come with the Surge Mesh Kit are not necessarily going to configure properly with this module. As long as the cable snake from the DM10 module has all 1/4 inch cables, most of the pads and cymbals will fit fine. The cable snake is typically always labeled.

    If you do not have the cable snake that comes with the DM10 it will not work properly. Please contact our support team to see what they may have available for a replacement if you are in need of one :)

    Hope this helps!

  • Hi do you have contact details and so if I was to buy the dm10 module and get the correct cable snake it would work with my surge mesh kit

  • Which DM10?
    There are 3...
    DM10 - (Original) has individual inputs and uses individual 1/4"(6.5mm) cables
    DM10 MKII Studio..uses a cable/snake with a db25 connector
    DM10 MKII Pro...uses cable/snake with a db25 connector

    If using the MKII Studio or Pro it is recommended you use the cable/snake for that module.
    A number of the db25 cable/snakes are wired differently internally and not interchangeable.

  • The advantage of the original module is you can measure out the distance from where you are mounting the module to the trigger and 1/4" (6.5mm)cables are available everywhere.This allows you to be able to purchase or make a cable to accomodate any rack size,whereas the modules with a db25 snake are limited to the size of rack it came with..
    There isn't a specific cable for drums only.
    TRS or stereo cables are for dual zone,TS or mono cables are for single zone.
    Here is a post to give a better idea..there is also a link to purchase original cables
    if you choose or you can't find a set...around 40-50 US.
    Myself I have always made my own cables.It is more expensive but you can get a better fit and by not using "molded" ends you are able to check/fix an end whereas if/when a molded cable goes bad it is hard to tell and you end up throwing away.
