so perhaps i could use a cy-8 rathen than a 5?
 the 5 is 10 inches if i remeber well? the cy-8 hw many inches is it?
compared to the original 2box hi hat, cy-5 is smaller, but cy-8 is it bigger?

any reccomendations? what you guys think i should buy?
and also in the cy-8 package when you buy it, oes it have all the nuts etc you need it to use it as a hi hat?
cy-5 in its package has both nuts for use as a hi hat and as a cymbal. same thing happens for cy-8?
thanx

the cy5 has a 10 inch playing surface and the cy8 12 inch.its up to you.

Hi, just for Info:

to use the CY-8 as a hihat, you need additional material, which seems to be already packed in the CY-5.
Also you have to widen the hole of the cymbal to make it fit on the Hihat assembly. The Choke-Function on the CY-8 is no problem for the hihat playing, although you won't really need it. (Is there ANY drummer outside who chokes his hihat by hand???)

The CY-5 was not available at the moment when I needed a Hihat-cymbal, so I took the CY-8. Not it is available and I will use the CY-8 as a crash.

Regards,
Andy from Red Bull Country

HI B.A.

You don t like the 2BOX hihat pad ?  you could use it , even with manfred's board ....

And just a question , why did you buy this board as you have a 2BOX hihat .... i m not sure you ll get a better control than with the original one ....

i havent bought it yet my friend. i wait a pm from manfred.
yes i have original hi hat
it is good but i have 2 things
first it makes me feel i will break it. really. the center of it moves to much for me to be calm that it will last
secondly i hate the stand. i am gonna buy (probably on june when my mate from ny comes to greece to give it to me cheap,) a pearl eliminator h2000 hi hat stand so, to put something there, i thing it will be better to use cy5 than the original...

thats my iopinion


why do you say that i may not have same control mate?
you had any problems?

manfreds solution realy solves my hands and makes me use a good hi hat stand that doesnt move sideways and also is a real eye catcher lol


cheers

Hello BA,

when my old drummer was using the 2box set, he moved very quickly from the original Hihat pedal to a pearl pedal. No matter what brand you use, they all work with the 2box-Hihat-cymbal!

The only important thing IMO is, that you have to get a pedal, where you can set the spring tension, which is not possible with the original 2box pedal, which moves much too easy with it's weak return spring.
Unfortunately I sold the whole kit (just kept the 2box module for me) so I had to get another Hihat brand when we got back using trigger drums in my rehearsal room, cause there is still not even one crappy 2box-cymbal available (that's something I still find extremely fu**ed, cause IMO the 2box cymbals really did a great job.

yes 2box cymbals are working great also the 2box hihat, I don't get it why people wanna switch there 2box hihat for a roland..you'll get the best results using the original 2box hihat.If you don't like the hihatstand buy a better one.And use the latest update v1.20

i didnt said manfred's board is worse than the 2 box controller ... i just think it will be the same .

I ve bought one ( in fact 2... ;)  ) and it works really well for me ...

... and yes , you re right , if you dont feel confident with your actual hats , go for it ....

have a nice day

Hi,

in my opinion the 2Box hihat has some disadvantages. But these disadvantages are more or less a matter of taste:

- playing foot chicks mostly triggers zone 4 too
- distance between closed and fully open is small (weak magnet)
- size and playing feel

It is great if the 2Box hihat works perfectly for you. But obviously there are quite a few people who are not totally satisfied and like to use other cymbals. No matter if it is a Roland, Yamaha, DIY or whatever. And the results are not worse than with the 2Box hihat, you can get at least the same results with separate board and cymbal.

Regards, Manfred
