  • DTXpress III Compatibility

    I have a Yamaha DTXpress III kit and my HH65 HH control pedal has gone left on me. I was wondering if anyone knew if there are other pedals that work with this drum machine. It uses a 1/4" stereo cable to interface to the machine. I would prefer buying a new pedal instead of waiting on a repair.

    I appreciate your feedback. Thanks!

    Yes you can use any hi-hat pedal from Yamaha. Or you can use any other brand's HH pedal but you will need a stereo-to-mono adapter from places like Radio Shack. Stick it in your other brand HH pedal and it will work with your Yamaha module.

      Lost Funcionality

      Thanks for your reply Kevin! Do you know if by converting from stereo to mono if I will lose any functiuonality? With the yamaha pedal I get open, half open and closed with a "cha" sound.

        No functionality is lost, it'll work like any other HH pedal. You'll get closed, open, half open, foot chick and splash.

          Along those same lines. Would this same adapter allow me to use a Yamaha HH65 with a Roland module (TD12)

            Yes, in that case you just insert the adapter into the module..
