The Zourman hi-hat conversion module (formally 42Box) 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 conversion kit electronics and intelligence combine the three trigger signals and deliver the output into a standard 2Box hi-hat input (single stereo jack).

The Zourman Drums 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. 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 Drums hi-hat conversion kit.

These models supports Roland FD-7, FD-8, FD-9, VH-10, VH-11, VH-12*, VH-13* and now also ATV aD-H14*!
The FD-8/VH-11 model do also work for Roland compatible hi-hats like JOBEKY 13, 14″ REAL FEEL CYMBAL AND HI-HAT CONTROLLER and Go Edrum GH6 eHi-Hat. Tests have also shown that FD-6 works with the Zourman Drums Hi-hat Conversion Module för FD-8/VH-11.
