    Ah now I get it. I was doing the setup backwards.

    Lesson learned.

    Thanks.

    (But there's no OFFSET automatic calibration button for a VH-11 on any module.)

    OK that's what I thought. The instructions that came with my TD-30K don't say anything about dropping the cymbal.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    In order to use the Offset function I just changed the pad type from VH-11 to VH-12. Otherwise I could find no other way to get the Offset to work. It just stared back at me as if to say "don't look at me I just work here".

    You push down on the Hi-Hat pedal to see where it bottoms out on the gauge then do some small tweaking to the offset adjustment screw to make the two arrows fill in and that's it.

    The TD-30 manual doesn't have us do it this way it seems.

    1) unscrew the clutch so the top & bottom cymbals of the VH touch - don't hold the foot down
    2) press the "calibrate" button on the module (it may be called "offset" - I don't remember exactly)
    3) watch the "arrows" on the display go up and down and settle
    4) when settled, raise the top cybal an inch or so, screw the clutch in: now the 2 cymbals should hold apart "naturally"
    5) you can now press down with the foot and enjoy

    I've been hashing this out for awhile.

    When adjusting the VH-11 offset so you get two "filled-in arrows" you must have your foot on the VH-11 pedal and hold the Hi-Hat closed to make the small adjustment?

    The instructions don't say to hold the pedal down anywhere. They seem to indicate you make the adjustment with the Hi-Hat open? I did it my way and it works great.

    Confused...

    Thanks.
