In a relative small business like the Zourman Drums, you sometimes get amazed…customers and dealers who have tried the Zourman “box” seems to be very pleased with the performance and how well the implementation between Roland hi hats and 2box module is working.
So if customers are satisfied…you get more orders. A couple of weeks ago we did receive a big order! (In our world)
It is of course fantastic but also creates some challenges! Can we source the components in time, what about the PCBs, the boxes, can we build it in time – ( my dad) and also maintain the quality?
The answer on all questions is of course yes!!! But both time and material needs to be invested! Just to keep working on your spare time !
But it feels fantastic to have built something that seems to fill a gap and which customers wants. We have two dealers in the world, we got a great review in digitalDrummer, we had our first AD in the same magazine and we got many orders.
For you ones who still are waiting for the VH-12 and 13 implementation…stay tuned…we are still fighting to nail the 100% right hi-hat feeling, but we are near a solution!
Yes, I am happy with it! I have tested it I compared it to the original and other solutions and it works much better. Still not optimal since it is not like the real hi-hat but much more precise. It follow Hi hat openings faster than other 2box solutions due to the Roland chip based solution.
I will soon test it on a FD-9 and will test this next week
Note: The FD-9 test did actually turned out to be successful – so it is now official supported!
Last weekend was dedicated to the production of Zourman hi-hat conversion kits at our “secret lab” in the north part of Sweden. We (me and my dad) also got a chance to test some new inventions which perhaps may become Zourman new products in the future.
We also patched a 2box module with an external memory card access for a friend. We do this in a rather special way – see my other old post at powerhell.se. Then we had a great brainstorm about another found issue on the original 2box hi-hat. We will see were this lead…
A great weekend and we do now have plenty of boxes in stock!
We are extremely pleased to announce our first distributor, Jobeky Drums in the UK. Jobeky will sell our hi-hat conversion kits for the UK market and also include our solution with their 2box based e-drums and hi-hats!
