Upgraded Band Hero Replacement Cymbal Cable

2015-08-17 12.37.17

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!!
