Re: Roland Hi-Hat upgrade -Roland or Yamaha?
Steve, I also have a td10 module and use the vh11 and would honestly not even think of using anything else.
I can't comment on the Yammie hi-hats as I've never played them but they do look very similar in design to the Roland. I THINK that the rubber may be a bit harder (and therefore slightly louder) than the vh11.
I see the Yamaha is also $100 cheaper so that may be a deciding factor for you.
Would definitely not consider the cy5 as a choice (once you've played the vh11 you can't go back)! For my money the vh11 has the most realistic feel to it.
