Last night, for the first night in nearly 8 years of uninterrupted playing,my Zendrum suffered an injury.
I put the instrument on her stand, left the bandstand, heard a thump and a cymbal crash where none should be and saw my Zendrum face-down on the stage. I screamed, checked her out thoroughly. Everything seems okay except for a cracked trigger housing in C2.
I admit that it threw me off my game for the night; everytime I touched that trigger I felt the rough edges of the crack and it scared the hell out of me. I've never had anything like this happen before, and what I'm worried about is that even though she played fine for the night, I'm hoping that I haven't knocked something loose inside that'll fail on me later.
I have another gig tonight; I'm going to try and ignore the flawed trigger until I can get it fixed. Anyone had anything similar happen to them?
