Pad Identification Guide

Not sure what control box is compatible with your pad? Check out the pictures below to find your pad. 

Please pay attention to the brand name on your pad. Some pads look very similar (e.g. DDRGame, TX, Lik Sang, RedOctane, etc.) but the pinout is different. All pads use different wiring and require a specific control box.

If you are unsure of what control box to buy please send a picture of your pad to DDRPadRepair@gmail.com and we will help you find a control box that is compatible with your pad. We can make custom control boxes for most pads.

Don't know if your pad is 15-pin or 9-pin? See below for more information. 

The number of pins refers to the connection on the dance pad. Dance pads use a D-Sub connector. This connector can have either 9 or 15 pins on it. Just count the number of holes on your connection to determent which one is compatible with your pad. The most common connection is 15-pin.

Here is an example of a 15-pin female connection. This is the most common connection that the majority of dance pads have.
