Electronic dropclutch
« on: December 27, 2010, 12:46:07 AM »


since it is not possible to use a common dropclutch at the 2Box hihat i started to build an electronic dropclutch. Maybe this is an interesting thought for others who want to use a double bass pedal. I used the following parts for my prototype:

- Stereo cable with TRS-Jacks
- 100 Ohm potentiometer
- Switch

I cutted the cable and putted the switch and poti in the ring wire:

If the switch is closed the hihat can be played normally. If the the switch is open the hihat is dropped. With the poti the level of the hihat in "dropped mode" can be adjusted. This is just a prototype, later on the switch will be replaced by a footswitch.

Here is a video with a short demonstration:


Hope that helps!

Regards, Manfred
