Listening to E-Kit and electric Guitar through headphones
 
Hey everyone, I looked a little bit and didn't find anything on this topic. I just bought the Yamaha DTX560k Electronic Drum Kit and me and my buddy wanna jam together. I live in a duplex so we wanna listen to it in headphones. So how could we hook our gear up so we can listen to both the electric guitar and my electronic drums?

Thanks in advance!

The Jamhub is awesome but there is a cheaper way to get started.

The guitar just needs something to amplify his guitar a bit. This can be a full on modeler ($300) or a tiny battery operated unit ($50).

His existing amp may already have an output jack that bypasses the speaker.

No meant to be about it- it is awesome! A bit on the expensive side but definitely worth it (picked mine up for a steal on ebay though).
The cheaper way that New Tricks describes will also work, but if you expand to a full band in the future, the JamHub is the way to go.

My last band would jam in headphones whenever my better half was home. We used my large mixer (Allen Heath MixWiz3 16:2) into a Behringer HA4700 headphone amp. That mixer is a luxury, and really any mixer with enough.

If the guitar player has a pedal like a Boss ME-25 then that can plug straight into a mixer. If not, he could get a Behringer GDI-21 pedal. It is not great sounding but it's a starting point. And for $40 what do you expect.

Here is the short list in links of what you will need at the least.

Headphone amp

Mixer (look on Craigslist for a better mixer for less)

DI sim pedal(if needed)

Cable from drums to mixer

Then a couple of adapters for your headphones and you're off to the races.

Jamhub looks like a great product. I have no experience with it.
