that s a really clever product .... more Roland owners are going to be able to use 2box modules without restrictions ...

it s gonna be easyer to answear to the " can i use my roland kit with the module ? " .... :)

I remember me posting here 5 years ago to ask if anything like this was existing ...:)

Just one thing , imo , the form factor is a bit too big for what's inside ...  Half would still be ok i guess ...

Also the Jack plugs could be on the same side , it will be more compact , and handy if you place the box in a rack ...

The price could be also smaller ...:) 


In the video you say that the hi-hat  is faster ... are you sure ? i cant understand how it could be possible ....

Hi!

Thanks for the feedback!

The 42Box is another solution for a well known problem - the Hi-hat. JMan has a great solution, if you want to hang on the hall effect technology. Mine is more for customers with existing Roland gears.

I don't know regarding the form factor - you have probably seen the freight dimensions. The 42box is about 10 cm x 5 cm x 4 cm in size... think about guitar effect pedal in size.

Plugs on the same side - let me see what we can do...(Could actually be that this is the case already)

Price - You get great value!! I promise!

Faster..could be hard to prove... but I would argue that it is more exact and have a better drum-feeling compare to the 2Box standard hi-hat.

Best Regards

So you are the developer? On the website 42box.se there's a single review, 5 stars, which you seem to have posted. Don't you think this is somewhat strange?

Coda, I might have tested the review function...and forgot to take away the post...:-)

I think however as a drummer the product earns five stars...:-)

Hi All!
Thanks for all interest in the 42Box Hi-hat conversion. (2Box users, e-drummers and dealers/retailers)

The 42Box site is up and running and the shipping costs and tax stuff have been updated to the customers favour! :-)

There is also an updated manual available with tricks and tips how to make your Roland Hi-hat, 42Box module and your 2Box Drumit Five module to run as smooth as possible!

I've had a review sample for a few days, preparing for a review in the May digitalDrummer. For now, suffice it to say the 42box does what it claims - and does so easily and reliably.
Well done, Anders.

It doesn't use the 2box HH system, so no. You just plug in the VH11 controller or FD8 (Im assuming FD7 will work too), and your cymbal.

What are you using for a HH controller? Jman's box or similar?

Hi all!

For not confusing e-drummers of the fantastic 2box (and trademark) with the 42Box hi-hat conversion kit, I have therefor created a complete new trademark for my hi-hat conversion kit: Zourman Drums!

At the same time when releasing this new trademark, I am also releasing some mechanical improvements of the kit, a M6 mounting point and all connectors on the same side of the box!

Some another great news is that Jobeky Drums will start to distribute Zourman Drums HH conversion kits in the UK!
