2Box Hihat Controller
« on: June 04, 2011, 08:46:49 PM »
Hello,

finally i opened my hihat because i wanted to know how it works. Some people are talking about "magnetic vodoo" but its not that complicated  :) The first thing i saw was that the PCB was not cleaned properly. Due to that it started to rot. Here is a picture:



By the way, the chip on top is the (magnetic) hall sensor. After cleaning it looks like this:



And finally after cleaning and soldering:



Of course i tried to draw the schematic:




Any comments are welcome  :)

Regards, Manfred

Detailed work as usual Manfred!  This information will surely help making a DIY hi-hat much easier now.  Pity to see that the chipboard was rotting like that - another thing to mark on the 2Box quality control list.  Little things like that make a big difference to the kit so well spotted man.

Good question. I just unsoldered the wires to separate the the circuit board from the cymbal. So i had to solder them again. Thats all.

In my opinion the concept with a magnetic level detection is quite good. Since there are no mechanically moved parts i would expect that it is reliable. And the cost for the electronic is pretty low.
