  • Fully compatible with all e-drum modules of ATV, Roland, Alesis, Pearl

Original hi-hat size

The size of this E-Hi-Hiat is 12". It´s the diameter of an acoustic hi-hat. As an acoustic drummer, this "real" size accommodates you to the maximum in playing technique. You can play your figures, paradiddles and beats exactly the same as on conventional acoustic hi-hats.

360° playable with very good signal processing

The artist Cymbals can be played on the entire surface in the circumference of 360°. You can really play them the way you want. They are very sensitive to your hits and strokes and the dynamic is breathtakingly real.

Very fine opening detection

A sensor in the bottom of the hi-hat precisely detects the distance between your bottom and top cymbal. From this degree of opening, your module can generate the sound in fine nuances between "closed" and "open"

It feels - nearly - like metal!

The haptic feel of the stroke and rebound is very close to an acoustic cymbal. The cup and the bow react tangibly direct, when played with the tip of the stick. The stroke with the shaft of your stick on the cymbal rim is rather smooth. This is due to the robust Silicone rubber surface, which provides pure authenticity, especially at the edge.

Hi-hat top can also be used as a crash or ride!

If you want to play a different hi-hat, you can also use the top of this ATV hi-hat as a conventional cymbal. It is easily possible to assign any other sample sound imaginable to this Cymbal. Put on a cymbal holder it can be used as splash, crash, FX, china and even (with the appropriate sound module) as a ride cymbal with a playable cup. Each artist cymbal has all the features of the complete series.

Loud but very responsive

Out of the box, I did not appreciate the warnings others have mentioned about how loud it is. But i found a hack online that works great. Furniture pads! I placed 8 evenly spaced around the lower cup near the edge, and that fixed it. They really should use a different material for the lower cymbal. Other than that, it performs great.

Großartige HiHat

Habe heute die neuen HiHats bekommen. Service und Lieferung von drum-tec sind schon mal wie immer top! Vorher habe ich die VH-10 gespielt. Die ATV-HiHat ist super. An meinem TD30 problemlos angeschlossen, ein paar Einstellungen verändert und schwupp, läuft!!! Ich bin begeistert!
