The Zourman Drums hi-hat conversion module replaces a standard 2Box hi-hat (hall effect sensor-based) with your favourite Roland hi-hat. The solution is 100% plug and play (only 2Box hi-hat calibration needed) and handles both a Roland hi-hat pad (bow/edge) and the hi-hat control pedal through the two input connectors. The Zourman electronics and intelligence combine the three trigger signals and deliver the output into a standard 2Box hi-hat input (single stereo jack).
The solution is the result of extensive research, development and rigorous testing with a range of equipment. Our testing has found that Roland hi-hats are very similar to 2Box hi-hat response, but more reliable and slightly faster. To further enhance the playability and response, the bow sensor (piezo) may need to be “cooled down” slightly with a variable resistor – an additional feature built into the Zourman hi-hat conversion kit.
This model supports Roland FD-6, FD-7, FD-8, FD-9, VH-10 and VH-11. This model also work for Roland compatible hi-hats like JOBEKY 13, 14″ REAL FEEL CYMBAL AND HI-HAT CONTROLLER, Alesis RealHat hihat pedal and Go Edrum GH6 eHi-Hat.

I ordered the Zourman box and to my surprise it nearly solved my hi-hat issues I had before. I could use my FD-7 again (which I loved) and I also tested the new Roland FD-9 (super silent) which did also work very well. The box does very well translate the openings without any artifacts. I got my fun back plaing funky beats and hi-hat open-closed beats. Good work !
