DIY Hi Hat Pedal

By July 21, 2014DIY Projects

This is my first try at a DIY hi hat controller for e-drums. The single spring approach provides good functionality, but remains too “springy” when compared to how a real hi hat feels. Upcoming mods will add some type of belt-drive — like the kick pedal — which should make the hi hat controller feel smooth and less “boingy”. Additionally, a FSR sensor will be added to send the signal to the drum brain.
