Hello,

i still get requests from time to time about the board. The problem i have with another batch is that i had to advance a lot of money and i'm not sure how much users are really interested. I wouldn't mind to spend some time for a second batch but i definitely would mind if i couldn't cover the expenses.

Based on the numbers for the first batch the price for the board would be around 30,- Euro plus (worldwide) shipping which is another 8 Euro.

So assuming there will be another batch of a slightly modified but very similar board who would be interested? Could those who are sure that they would want a board please drop me a PM?

There is no order for boards or components placed up to now but i would like to have an estimation about the risk for the advance money.

Regards, Manfred

yep...I'll PM you too.

HI Manfred, to help reduce the cost for Australians, I'm happy to act as a drop box. If any Aussies interested in the board can PM me, we can do a joint order and I'll on-ship locally.

hi Manfred ...

Do you think it s possible to put such a circuit board and magnet inside a YAMAHA HH65 or similar HIHAT pedal ? I d prefere  to avoid the use of a HIHAT stand ...

Did you get an answer to your question about the HH65?

Anybody know how to get in touch with Manfred? Tried to contact him via PM but no reply but I see he has been active on the forum. I need to buy one of his circuit board mods.

I've finally gone the DIY way for the Hi hat using Manfred's board so here is the installation :








The box is firmly attached to the Tama Speedcobra Hi hat stand using two screws already there to allow the rubber part to slide.
I should get another one and do proper hole now that I know where I should drill the box.

The magnet is tiny but quiet powerful. I think I have to change it because if I set the pedal to minimum, I start to have some weird triggering going on.

Otherwise, the board works like wonder wether I use a Yamaha 135 or Jman's A to E Hi hat.

Hi BA.

Like you maybe remember, I had the Eliminator before. I played on them for more than 1 year and was happy with it. Few weeks ago, I was able to get the Speedcobra used but like new for a very cheap price (50€) by buying different drum related stuffs and selling the ones I didn't needed (like EDTC suggested to me).

I must say I have adopted the Speedcobra very fastly. They feel more light than the Elim's but still have power. So if you like light feel they are very good for that. They just stay glued to your foot whatever they do. Longer Pedal board feel also more confortable for me. The only thing I will miss is the Soft Pearl Case vs the Tama hardcase.

I have done this cause I wanted a matching Hi hat stand and the Pearl H2000 is not suited to install a box under the pedal. Tama's stands are.

I dunno, I've never played an Pearl H2000. I can only say then Speedcobra is better than Gibraltar Liquid Drive in every aspect. Very sturdy, doesn't move an inch even if I stomp the pedal. This without using any spike. It is also very very smooth to a point i had to set the lever almost all the way up to feel it. But I have choosed it mainly for easy Manfred's board mountability, instant pedal folding and double pedal matching  :rock:

I think H2000 / Tama Lever Glide / DW9500 are a very close match in the Hi hat stand area.

A question for people who are using a bottom cymbal for there Hi hat conversion :

If I use a Top and a bottom cymbal, I can't trigger the edge zone (zone 8) when both cymbals are in contact
It seems like you need a smaller bottom cymbal than top in order to trigger it correctly. Am I right ?

Roland VH13 seems build that way and Rob's mod too.
