Default Yamaha DT Explorer question - re routing drums

Hi,
I've just purchased my first electronic kit- the yamaha entry level DT explorer. Does anyone know if I can re route the snare pad to trigger it from the hi hat foot pedal- I am 'busking' soon where I will be playing acoustic/singing and want to use the bass and snare drums whilst playing. I thought about using a kick pedal and moving teh snare pad down to a convenient place but think that the foot pedal may be too strong for the pad, and after the first song or two, the pad will have moved around/out of reach etc.
Any other suggestions welcome.
Thanks,
David

Default Re: YAMAMHA DT EXPLORER QUESTION- re routing drums

Maybe two ways to do this...(1st maybe) try and connect the foot pedal to the snare input (on back of module)..and then use preloaded snare sound...(2nd maybe) or go into edit mode, tap on hihat (footboard) to select it, and then scroll through options to see if you can select a snare...not sure if it can be done (i.e., never tried it and I'm currently away from my kits [vacation])....

I'd buy a second kick drum pad and pedal and do it that way.
