  • Hit hi-hat once, hear it twice!

    Hi there.

    I have a Roland TD-4 kit.

    If I hit my hi-hat edge with the stick while I have my hi-hat pedal pressed down so that the hi-hat is "closed," I usually hear the hit-hat sound twice. Almost like there's a quick echo of the hit (but the same volume). So instead of hearing "tss" I hear "tss tss." I suspect there's a connection loose somewhere inside it which is triggering the sound twice instead of once.

    Thoughts?

    Check the TRS cable at the HH and the foot switch. Make sure they aren't dirty and that they're plugged in all the way.

      Do you have the CY-5 hi-hat pad? If yes, that happened to me too and the problem was that the pad was too loose so the movement triggered it twice. Tightening the pad on the support solved the problem.
      Roland TD-12 + SD3 + Drum-tec stainless steel Pro snare, ATV 18” ride & some basic Roland pads.

        Yeah, the CY-5. It's already pretty tight on there, but I'll try that. Thanks.
