  • FD7, HiHat Pedal's 'Chic' Sound. Too Quiet ?

    Hey. Does anyone else think that the 'chic' sound on our FD7 Hihat pedals is weak in comparison to acoustic hihats? The FD7 sounds seems too quiet relative to the rest of my Vs.

    I don't play amplified, with my KC500 very often. It's usually me & me hedfones. So, I wonder if FD7s are louder in the mix once amplified?

    Also, do most of you set & fasten the FD7's vertical post lower than the factory midpoint for a greater range of motion? Or Higher, or what?

    I thought the TD-10 volume was low also, but the expansion card fixed that by allowing separate adjustment of the chick volume. I would have thought the TD-8 would have included that feature since it was a source of complaints on the TD-10.

    As far as adjustment, I adjust mine for as much range of motion as it will allow. I did that the first day I set them up. Loosen the wing nut, pull the rod up and tighten for max throw.

    I play a KC500 and a Peavey KB/A 300. I have to adjust kit volume levels differently for both. It's not that much, but enough to notice. Certain frequencys are handled differently between amps and phones with some louder, lower, crisper, etc. It's hard to say what to expect from phones to amp in your case.

        So Alex, are you using it? Or are you saying it still isn't adequate?

            Hehehahoohoo! Ok I changed a few kits. I set the pedal parameter to 12 on a scale of 0 to 15. 9 was default on all 64 kits. I guess I should read me owner's manual a bit mo'. I didn't even expect this feature to exist. Thanx Much to you 3 fine fellos, tho'!
