One of the most common breakages on a Guitar Hero Band Hero drum kit is the cymbal cable. You know the story, you unscrew one of the cymbals, pull it off and forget there is a delicate cable in the bottom of it and... too late! If you are not sure if it is your cymbal cable or inside the drumkit that is broken try swapping the cymbal from the opposite side.

Our replacement cymbal cables are made of much thicker wire, feature a larger plug head which is much stronger, and they are also longer so you can safely take the cymbal off and get to the cable, before you have broken it, we have yet to break one of these!

The fit is universal, meaning you do not need to choose a left or right hand side cable, one size really does fit all, and is compatible with all Band Hero drum kits (Sony Playstation 2 & PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii)

Fitting Instructions

It really couldn't be easier; using a small screwdriver take off the back of the cymbal (some use a small Phillips head and some use a T10 Torx,) unstick the old sensor and cable, push the plug through the hole left in the casing, stick the new sensor on and you're done in 5 minutes. To give extra strength you may wish to put a blob of silicone or similar around the hole to stop you accidentally pulling the wires off the sensor. Unfortunately we could not source a gromit to do this at the moment although we are still looking!!

Solderless Drum Repair Kit

February 3, 2010 by  
Filed under GH6 Drum Parts, GHWT Drum Parts, Repair stuff, Tutorials

Buy Guitar Hero Drum Repair KitWe are very happy to bring you the latest product in our range of repair and upgrade parts for your Guitar Hero Instruments, the long awaited Solderless Drum Repair Kit.

We have been selling a drum repair kit on Guitar Hero Repair for a while now, but the feedback we have been getting is that it is quite fiddly and difficult to fit, well in response to this we have now launched the new version of this kit.

It can be used to fix any of your main drum pads on both the Guitar Hero and Band Hero drum kits and takes no more than 10 minutes to fit with just a screwdriver needed.

The drum pads work by means of a small sensor on the underside of the drum pad which picks up vibrations when the pad is hit. The wires from this sensor take the signal back to the main circuit board of the drums where all the important processing takes place. This repair kit includes a pre-assembled sensor, wire, plug for the circuit board with the special adhesive pad to allow you to attach it to the drums.

Installation could not be simpler! Open up the back of your drums with the appropriate screwdriver (Phillips or Torx 10 both of which are common sizes) unplug the old sensor wire from the circuit board (using pliers if needed) and remove the old sensor from the underside of the drums, then plug the new sensor in and stick it back to the underside of the drums using the special adhesive pad provided with this kit. The installation video above shows just how easy this repair is.

Solderless Drum Repair Kit FAQ's

  • Does this work on the red / blue / green pad?

Yes, these kits are made with longer cables to allow it to be used on whichever drum pads you require so no need to specify which pad you are repairing

  • Is this kit compatible with the Band Hero drum kit?

Yes, the Band Hero Drum kit has almost identical internals so this kit has been tested on the new drum kit and it works perfectly

  • Do I get instructions with my order?

No, in this case the repair is so simple that all the instructions you could need are contained within the tutorial video above, you will receive a conformation email with a link to this page.

  • Do I need any special skills to fit this item?

No, if you can operate a screwdriver you will be fine to fit these!

  • Where can I get a Torx Screwdriver

Have a look at our 8 in 1 Torx Screwdriver Set

  • Can I use the sensor to repair my broken cymbal?

You could, but a cheaper option would be to just buy our standard drum repair kit, which also includes instructions on fitting a new sensor into your cymbal (soldering required)
