The Zourman Drums hi-hat conversion kit (formally called 42Box) replaces a standard 2Box hi-hat (hall effect sensor-based) with your favorite 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 only supports Roland VH-13. Note: The extra tight hi-hat function which are part of the Roland VH-13 performance is not natively supported by the 2box module – but it can be addressed if the samples are adjusted in 2box module using SDSE or similar tools.
