  • OK Another VH-12 TD-12 thing.....

    Hi All
    I have set up my new VH-12's with my TD12 tonight and am after some advice!
    Firstly although I was going to update my TD12 tonight so my VH12's would 'work' I thought I would give it a go without the update...
    I have been hearing conflicting evidence about the compatibilty for ages so this is what I have found so far.
    The VH12 seems to work fine without any update - I can get closed right through to open as I did with VH-11's. NOT open or fully closed as I was expecting!
    The' feel' is about the same as VH11 whereas I have to 'close' the hat pretty tight to get a closed sound. This may be something in the settings I can mess around with to make better
    but am unsure if it will do without the update?
    Cheers!

    I have a TD-12 with the update and recently bought the VH-12's during RMC's $99 blowout sale. I followed the set-up and calibration directions that came with the TD-12 and found that it worked pretty much flawlessly from the get go. As I mentioned in another thread, it's not quite the same as playing a set of acoustic hi-hats but I've been able to adjust my technique to get a performance level I'm pretty happy with, at least for quite practice at home. I think if I were playing live I would go back to my acoustic hi-hats but the VH-12's a doing what I wanted by reducing the volume at home (my wife loves them!).

      Yeah mine too - Sweetwater $99 ones! The more I play them the more I like them! Strange though after most people said I would need the update for them to work fully. Unless I am missing something my td12 definitely hasn't got the update! Just curious I guess!
      yeah I think I replied to your thread - they are still a long way off acoustic in terms of feel its just something you have to get used to I guess...
