  • Rotating High-Hat

    I am having trouble with my VH-11 high-hat. The hat starts out correctly with the “Roland” insignia in the rear and the sensor in the front, but as I play, the hat rotates around to the point that I am hitting the “non-sensor” area. Anybody had this problem? How do I keep the hat from rotating?

    Welcome to the forum. This is a not uncommon issue ... the search engine is your friend, but see these threads




    It mainly comes down to making sure you have tightened the central high hat rod - it may be spinning round rather then the pad, and using the cable ties provided to hold the cable tightly in place to then stop the pad from spinning

      Thanks Swaledale! That did the trick. Actually I did search several times for this issue, but I was unable to come up with the links that you found. I guess my searching techniques need improving.
      I have been lurking here for a few months, but I finally bought a TD-12 kit, and-due to my high-hat issue-actually needed to make a post. But thanks for the "welcome".
