I'm fairly new to drum triggering and I do have a Roland TD-6 v-drum set.  I also have a couple of more connections for at least two trigs.  I've seen some videos on youtube where they have triggers on regular cymbals.  How can I get a trigger that would fit my accoustic cymbal or what do I have to do to make one or am I missing something here?  Thanks for the time.

What can I say, I love to play my drums, even though its a rinky dinky set.

If you want to keep your acoustic cymbal ringing, you may try to fix a http://www.toontrack.com/forum.....nbsp;using some double sided foam tape.
Place it under the cymbal, next to the bell.
Since the cymbal won't be damped, it will produce a lot of vibrations, though.
I'm not sure you'll be satisfied with such a setup but it's probably worth the try.
PS : I'll provide some info about how to build an e-cymbal from an acoustic cymbal ASAP. Unfortunately, it's thought as a permanent modification.
