    As you already have the needed jacks on the current box, why not do it double purpose (e.g. HHC or RRd-2BCy) - switch modes with a micro switch ie ?

      Anything is of course possible...actually my original design the 42Box (yes the name is "for" 2Box) I had support for 3 different hi-hats using micro switches, but I dropped that to drive down complexity and the cost. If somebody needs a certain hi-hat conversion, he or she will will only be interested in that one function and buy the actual 42Box. So I will add models of hi-hats if people are interested. VH-12 is one modell. Other functions like the Roland three way rides to converted to the 2Box format is also a real interesting function...which I personally would be interested to have! (So we will see in the future...if market and the feeling is right...)

      Here is another video how to configure the 42Box and VH-11 plus an unknown 2Box secret...

              Hi all!

              For not confusing e-drummers of the fantastic 2box (and the related trademark) with the 42Box hi-hat conversion kit, I have created a complete new trademark for my hi-hat conversion kit: Zourman Drums!

              At the same time when releasing this new trademark, I am also releasing some mechanical improvements of the kit, a M6 mounting point and all connectors on the same side of the box!

              Some other great news is that Jobeky Drums will start to distribute Zourman Drums HH conversion kits for the UK!

              Welcome to visit http://www.zourman.com

                Hi again!

                I just released a new manual for the Zourman Hi-hat conversion kit (formally 42Box) for FD-8/VH-11 with some small tweaking tips. You will get a 100% working Roland hi-hat implementation by just using the standard calibration scenario, but it is actually possible to tweak it even further to be able to reflect your play style even better. What I have seen in my tweaking tips is there seems to be a connection between the impedance on the bow sensor (which need to be cooled on Roland hi-hats with some resistance) and how easy or hard it is to create a foot chick. A too high cooler value (50k ohm) will make it very hard to create a foot chick(sample number 9) and a too low value will make the foot chick to misfire. About 20k ohm seems to be a sweet spot on my hi-hat solution. (There is a variable resistor on the HH kit)

                On VH-11 there is also a mechanical way to transfer the hi-hat to be more open or closed by just routating the hi-hat pedal screw on the hi-hat top a quarter turn against open or closed. This will make the hi-hat to react in a smoother way.

                There is also a nice way to adjust the samples if you think the especially hi-hat sound cuts too sharp by just adjusting the "hold" parameter on 2box DrumIT Five module.

                For more HH tweaking hints....in general or especially for the Zourman Hh Kit...have a look in the new manual:

                        Hi All!

                        A new version of the manual for Zourman Drums Hihat Conversion Kit(Formally 42box) can now be found on Zourman.com. (Support section)

                        I have now officially added support for FD-7 and the new FD-9.

                        Mr "De...Lo" thought my 2box screenshots in the manual looked strange and that one of tweaking tip was a bit unclear...so I have fixed it and redrawn the screenshots to now be top notch! :-)

                        Have a look at:

                              So I purchased one of the Zourman units two months ago and have been using it since. It works very well! I am using it with a Roland FD-8 pedal (and a DIY A2E fixed cymbal) and the 2Box Drumit 5 module, and honestly I don't even think about the converter being there at all. I just play, and it works. Anders (angr77) has also been very helpful with email questions about the module. It is great that it does not require batteries, so once you set it up, it is good to go forever.

                              One tip - When I initially calibrated the module, I had trouble getting the hi-hat to close all the way after calibration. I think the FD-8 was a little inconsistent at the end of its stroke (pedal down). So I recalibrated the module again, but lifted my foot a very tiny amount from fully bottomed, say about 1/8" or less at the front of the pedal. Once I did that, the hi-hat closed fully, and it has been working great since. This is a very minor deal, and is more likely an issue with the Roland FD-8 (or my foot).

                                Hi!

                                Many great thanks for the review Deude-Mann!

                                Regarding your small issues with FD-8, did you put the Zourman Drums Conversion Module in "calibration" mode when doing the 2box hi-hat callibration...and when done with the process...switch it back to normal mode. It should handle the closing of the hi-hat completely. But as you say...there is several ways to do the optimal hi-hat calibration. :-)

                                Personal note from Zourman Drums.
                                I am getting amazed and thankful for all e-drummers who who have invested in my hi-hat box (Drummers who and seems to have an old Roland hi-hat and also is using a 2box module), because the sales have gone way beyond my wildest guess...and with 3 partners in the world (Jobeky, Drum-tec and Electronic drum center) it feels very good to been able to fill a needed gap!

                                Many great thanks!

                                Best Regards
