Zourman Drums introduces models with Virtual Clutch functionality – a just great idea which was initiated from a user!
Virtual Clutch is a system where the hi-hat pedal position can be set in advance dynamically between open/closed mode. Just a perfect solution for drummers with double kicks who sometimes need the ability to set the hi-hat pedal in to near closed position – just as a real hi-hat. A switch on the front panel will set the Zourman hi-hat module in virtual clutch mode. A potentiometer adjusts the hi-hat position between open or closed. One feature is that the pedal will still work as usual when in virtual clutch mode, but then will go from the fixed position to closed when pressing down the hi-hat pedal.
The new added virtual clutch models includes support for Roland FD-7, FD/8, FD-9, VH-11 and VH-12 hi-hats and the 2box DrumIt Five module.
Interested? Have a look on https://www.zourman.com
The virtual clutch functionality is offered on new separate models of the Zourman Drums hi-hat conversion module.

Tobi a jazz/funk drummer in Germany:
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!
Wednessday 6/4-2016 the first hi-hat conversion kit was launched for the 2Box Drumit5 module. The first 42Box model targets the Roland FD-8 and VH-11 hi-hats. Over 230 visitors took a look during the first day on the website – looking on the product and watched the videos etc.
A lot of great feedback received on the product on the forums like http://vdrums.com and 2box-forum.com and also digitalDrummers facebook page with comments how to improve, requests for more hi-hat models, create conversion kit for Roland 3 Way rides and to create a multichannel box to handle too hot e-cymbals/pads with variable resistor.
So I am really amazed by all feedback! Thanks!!
