  • TD30KV hi-hat double clicking

    I am getting a double click from the hi-hat from a single strike. It almost sounds like a ghost note. Also, I'm not getting any response from my bass drum unless I put a lot of foot into it. I'm assuming I need to tighten the head for better response with less effort. I just haven't done it yet. Any suggestions?

    I recommend you read my setup guide and see if it fixes your problems:


    I think my work is done here.

      It's usually a sign of wearing on the connection. Try changing the cables to see if it helps. Roland's HH's are known to wear on the cable pretty hard.

          is the double hit on the hihat when you lift your foot off completely and the hihat returns to its normal position by itself? I had this issue, i changed the spring tension on my hihat to prevent the instant return to the top position because that bump was enough to triggerthe hihat hit sound
