What hihat would you suggest getting?
« on: November 24, 2018, 09:09:07 AM »
Hi all,

I've had the drumit3 now for over 3 weeks. I'm not happy with the response of the Yamaha RHH-135 hihat. I've gone through the settings enough to be familiar with them, so calibration is no longer the issue.

I'm looking for suggestions on which hihat to get. I would guess the 2box hihat would perform the best with the drumit3, but would like to have your input. Which hihat do you suggest I get?

Here's an example of the hihat playing I do on acoustic drums.

Attempting this style of playing on the Yamaha hihat is just frustrating.

Hi!

When you say bad response... do you mean the pedal or the e-pad of RHH-135?

If it is the pedal...the 2box hh could be an alternative...but maybe there are even better alternatives:
1. The Roland’s or a ATV  hh. (ATV needs a Zourman module)
2. Stealth hh Kit.(then you could use the existing Yamaha pads)
3. 2box hi-hats

Best regards

It's mostly the pedal that sucks, and I hope it's the Yammie and not the module. The pad itself does have quite a hot spot, but the pedalfunction is what makes it suck.

Does additional boxes improve performance?

Ok.

No, my boxes wouldn’t help On DI3 or Yamaha hh.

The Yamaha is using 8 fixed pedal positions so it should in theory perform good.
I am doing some generic stuff after been calibrating the Roland hi-hats. I am raising the pfact about 10 steps and sets the pedal curve to a negative value and sens to about -2 to -4 to make it run smooth.
