  • Made a 14 Inch Hi Hat and it works great!

    Last night I decided to try a CY-14c in place of the 12 inch Hi Hat. I have a GoEdrum hi hat sensor I bought a couple weeks ago. Using the clutch off my old VH-12 top I was able to push it through the CY-14 with a little effort. The sensor uses a felt washer between the clutch and the sensor plunger. There was plenty of room for the cord and the assembly closed all the way to trigger closed hat sound. It worked way better than I thought and will probably leave it this way for a while. It was a great way to get a full sized 14 inch hat feel and a great sound with the TD-50!

                Alright folks, I took some pics of the CY-14 Hi Hat using the GoEdrum trigger sensor. Check it out!

                    I tested the same setup, doesn't work for me: the much heavier CY-14C makes the hihat rod wobble causes repeat triggering.
                    This does not occur when using the GOEDrum with the CY-12C or CY-5. It works fine with first tests, but in both cases for some reason when playing jazz beat on the hihat, it doesn't trigger the open hihat correctly (where you strike the open hat on the and of 2 and 4).
                    Don't have this issue with the VH-11, so back to that one.
