  • YAHHC (Yet Another Hi-Hat Controller)

    "It ain't purty but it works dept."

    I've been playing raw open hi-hat for a month now, because I've been assembling my kit from scratch mostly.

    Got a Sonor hi-hat stand on ebay some time ago, and a CY-5 later. The Roland pedals have escaped my grasp so far, so got an FSR a while back. Finally decided to make something work. (If not familiar with FSR term, just means Force-Sensitive Resistor)

    This approach here is using the 0.5 inch Interlink FSR. (via Jaycon Systems on ebay ... no more there. However, stil have some on their web site as I linked). They also have the 1.5

    Alright! Another FSR user! Cool!
    I put mine under the HH pedal as I didn't want to have 2 cables running up the stand.

    I'm not familiar with the TD6, but on my Yamaha, the unit automatically adjust to height and pressure every time I turn on the module.
    There might be a setting in your TD6 to adjust the height of the pedal so that you can trigger the foot splash easily.

      Thanks Perceval, I've seen your FSR approaches, they are nice. I might try the 1.5" under the pedal, see how that goes. I'm going to add a trim pot to the works and hope I can get it dialed in just right.

      I think in TD-6 and 6V you just have a 'pedal volume' adjustment? Nothing for height though. I am not even sure what a working TD-6V's hi-hat sounds like with a working setup (FD-6 on up). From what I can tell YouTubing, seems to be working mostly right. I'm going to add a concentrator button over the FSR (rubber button).
