The 2box module has become popular among e-drummers, mostly for its real samples and open-source approach with many sample layers. And while the module is compatible with triggers from other manufacturers, users have largely been restricted to 2box’s proprietary hi-hat controller. The first product from Zourman.com(formally called 42Box) will enable 2box owners to use existing non-2box hi-hats – particularly the popular Roland range. Our hi-hat conversion kit combines the best of both worlds: use the Roland FD-7, FD-8, FD-9 or VH-11, VH-12 and now VH-13 hi-hats together with the 2box module.

In January 2018 we launched a 3 zones ride conversion module for 2box Drumit Five and Roland CY-13R and CY-15R.

March 2018 we launched a hi-hat conversion module for the legendary ddrum4 se module (Almost 18 years old!!!) and to able to use it with Roland FD-8/VH-11 hi-hats.
