View Full Version : Hi-hat conversion kit for 2Box DrumIt Five and Roland FD-8 & VH-11!

04-18-2016, 07:48 PM

Hi! I just wanted to push for a invention: The 42Box Hi-hat Conversion Kit.

The 42Box hi-hat conversion kit replaces a standard 2Box hi-hat with your favourite Roland FD-8 or VH-11 hi-hat. The solution is 100% plug and play and handles both a Roland hi-hat pad (bow/edge) and the hi-hat control pedal through the two input connectors. The 42Box deliver the output into a standard 2Box hi-hat input (single stereo jack).

Have a look at www.42box.se and check the videos about the solution.

Best Regards

Welcome Zourman!

The controller looks very nice and it seems like a great fix for the 2box.

Also, thank you for all the work you've done with Megadrum and Addictive Drums!

Zourman Drums introduces models with Virtual Clutch functionality – a just great idea which was initiated from a Zourman user!

Virtual Clutch is a system where the hi-hat pedal position can be set in advance dynamically between open/closed mode. Just a perfect solution for drummers with double kicks who sometimes need the ability to set the hi-hat pedal in to near closed position – just as a real hi-hat. A switch on the front panel will set the Zourman hi-hat module in virtual clutch mode. A potentiometer adjusts the hi-hat position between open or closed. One feature is that the pedal will still work as usual when in virtual clutch mode, but then will go from the fixed position to closed when pressing down the hi-hat pedal.

The new added virtual clutch models includes support for Roland FD-7, FD/8, FD-9, VH-11 and VH-12 hi-hats and the 2box DrumIt Five module.

Interested? Have a look on http://www.zourman.com

The virtual clutch functionality is offered as new separate models of the Zourman Drums hi-hat conversion module

For you ones that owns a Roland VH-13 hi-hat and 2Box...there is a VH-13 version available of the Zourman Drums Hi-hat Conversion Module for 2Box DrumIt Five.

The VH-13 impedance range actually differs quite alot from the VH-11 and VH-12 versions - so it needed its own version to make it perfect!

Hi all dear 2box users!

To extend the Zourman Drums offerings (Former 42box), we are now turning our attention to a custom sound library of samples for 2box.

With the 2box open sound source approach, we were able to create a sample package based on a great snare and release it in 2box file format.

The Ludwig Black Beauty snare is a well-known snare to all drummers and treated as the de-facto standard among drummers in the world. This very rare instrument was produced 1922 and despite a history of almost 100 years, the snare still sounds fantastic!

How to obtain the snare sample?
New customers can buy the pack at a bargain price on the zourman.com site.
For existing Zourman Drums customers who bought our conversion modules in the past on our zourman.com site, a free version of the pack can be downloaded from your personal account page.

Thanks for watching!

Hi all!
To extend the Zourman Drums offerings, we are now adding a new conversion module which will enable 2box owners to use existing non-2box 3 zone rides – particularly the popular Roland range.

Our conversion modules combines the best of both worlds: the Roland CY-13R and CY-15R rides together with the 2box DrumIt Five module. The Zourman 3 zone ride conversion module replaces a standard 2box ride cymbal with your favourite Roland 3 zone ride. The solution is 100% plug and play (only 2box settings needed to be changed) and handles both outputs (bow/edge & bow/bell) on the Roland CY-13R and CY-15R through the two input connectors found on the conversion module.

The Zourman Drums electronics and intelligence combine the three+choke trigger signals and deliver the output into a standard 2box 3 zone input (single stereo jack).
