  • DIY HiHat Controller for Session Pro DD502

    Hi All, I need some help with a HiHat pedal (foot switch?) I have a TD12 & a TD3 - no problems there :-) As "the drummer" in the family I've been tasked with coming up with an entry level kit on a VERY tight budget for a nephew. I've just bought a "faulty" Session Pro DD502 with some parts missing. I'm trying to get ahead of the game before it gets delivered & come up with a HiHat pedal as the original is (I think) missing. I also have a spare DD505 module knocking around so I'm just trying various switch combinations on both 2 & 3 pole jacks into the HH control socket.... So far nothing quite works as I would have expected! I can get open & closed sounds but in my "open" position I can get both open & closed sounds depending on how hard I strike the pad. Do I need a pot or a fixed resistor in there somewhere?

    Thanks, Baz

    Just spotted an advert on Amazon uk which says of the DD505 "Hi-Hat Control Pedal With Half Open Feature" - pictue looks the same though..... looks like there are (at least) 2 types of pedals out there for these type of kits - the basic switch type for basic open & closed sounds on a DD502 & some kind of variable type that allows half open (variations in between?) on a DD505 & uses all 3 connections of the TRS / 3 way jack - getting closer :-)
