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!!

  • What do you get with a strummer repair kit? - the kit contains 1 or 2 switches and printed fitting instructions, you will also get an email when your item is dispatched and this will include a download link for an extra copy of the instructions in high resolution colour PDF format
  • Should I buy a single or double repair kit? - In 90% of the guitars we see, only 1 switch ever really breaks but as it only takes an extra minute or two to fit a second switch it is something you should consider which is why we offer heavy discounts on the second switch
  • How long will shipping take? - See our shipping information page

So you have found something you like the look of eh? Its cheap yes? You want it now huh? Well by following a few simple steps you can make sure what you want is what you get!

  • Read the ad - sounds obvious I know but you need to read exactly what the buyer is saying in their ad, most seller are good people trying to provide the best service they can but you still need to check.
  • Ask questions - if you're buying a console, for instance, and it does not mention that the power lead is included then ask! Chances are the seller has just forgotten to mention it, but what if they are selling without a power cable? That would be very dissapointing when it arrived.
  • Check Feedback - Feedback is eBay's way of keeping the honest, honest! Good traders will have a good feedback rating and comments - they are used to getting it right and will not want to ruin their reputation on one transaction going wrong, so they will ensure you stay happy throughout.
  • Check how much things cost on other sites like Amazon to make sure you are getting the best deal.
  • When to buy - these deals change by the minute so you should be sure to check back often, but generally if you are looking on a sunday afternoon you will be bidding against more people than if you were looking on a tuesday morning.
  • Paying - while sellers can accept many methods of payment, Paypal is by far the favoured way of paying, it is safe, free, and provides insurance should something go wrong - If you do not have a Paypal account go get one now!
  • Problems? eBay and Paypal both work very hard to ensure the process is a hapy one and as you will see by looking at people's feedback rating very, very few people ever experience a bad transaction and even then they can get their money back.

By following these simple steps you should be able to keep yourself safe online and get the very best value deals.
