  • the fd7 and the alesis dm pro?

    hey,
    does anyone know if the roland fd7 hihat control is compatable with the alesis dm pro. i was going to buy a fd7 for my set so i looked on ebay and saw someone selling one. when i read the description they said they were selling it because it didn't work with there alesis module!!!!! so now i'm not sure if they were using an older alesis or what. also if the fd7 isn't compatable with my module what would be a good hihat control instead of the fd7. thanks alot!!

    I believe lots of people like the Hart pedal(over the FD-7). The Hart pedal is sure to work with your DM-Pro.

          Over all: Very good pedal (for an e-pedal).

          Do a search here for: Hart hi-hat pedal

                  I see alot of questions begining with , do you know where I can find? The Internet was developed for scientific research, it's the most complete tool ever devised by man for finding anything to do with anything and it's literally at your finger tips. You can find anything on earth, if it's out there, you can find it on the net. Just run some different searches.

                    Captain don't worry your not an ass, you answered my question! Thanks!
                    On the other hand I'm sorry for offending jrcel by asking such a backward and stupid question. I mean what was i thinking, trying to save some time by asking a question instead of sifting through the incrediable amount of crap on the internet. Geeze i feel like such a fool now. And it's not like i had already tried to find a hart pedal at midwest, musician's friend,zzounds, and ebay. Damn, I'm so stupid.
                    They should really screen all the questions that are asked on this OPEN forum to make sure things that would help people... i mean things that would make the great jrcel waste his time don't make it. If you thought the question wasn't up to your standards you didn't have to respond to it, this isn't your job or anything.
                    But anyway thanks captain!

                          Calm down, I meant no offense. I just wanted to point out that the internet is a great way to get information on your own, instead of waiting for a coupe of days for an answer from a board member. If you give a man a fish you feed him for a day etc.............. With regards to a DM Pro and FD7 pedal, I was told by an Alesis engineer that the DM Pro hat input was designed to work specificaly with an FD7, being that Roland is the most prolific edrum company in the world.

                            Hello.

                            I have a dm pro. I researched all the drum forums and came to the conclusion that I wanted to go with the hart epedal, even though when you RTFM it recommends the fd-7. I went to the local guitar center and proceeded to special order a hart epedal. It was hard to resist walking out with an fd-7 in hand instead of a receipt for a pedal that had to be ordered from the east coast. I had to coax the guitar center folks that yes, they were a hart dealer, and yes, they could get a hart epedal. It took about half an hour, as they did not have the item in their "system". We called hart, and finally GC matched the price I brought for the epedal in an interstate music catalog.

                            The hart pedal was worth the wait. It's rugged, lifetime guaranteed, and has a metal jack for the control cable. The feel is great. The dm pro responds better than expected with a Velocity conrol pedal.

                            If you need help getting the variable hat pedal to work with your dm pro, go to the yahoo dm pro user group and read the post I put there with instructions on how to accomplish this. Some folks have had difficulties Understanding TFM.

                            An fd-7 would work fine on the dm pro, I just am not a fan of plastic jack sockets. They break and are not readily available as replacement parts.

                            I would recommend the hart epedal for use with the td-8's and td-10's also. It works. Roland would like for you to believe that you'll be sorry if you don't buy an fd-7.
