Default Re: Roland Hi-Hat upgrade -Roland or Yamaha?


The VH11 is a nice upgrade for certain. Don't make the "mistake" I made when I was looking to upgrade the hats on my TD9 set. I sat down and tried a pair of Zildjian Gen 16 hats. While agreeing with the mixed reviews on Gen 16 system sounds, there is NO substitute for the feel of real cymbals, even ones with thousands of perforations in them! I bought a box set primarily to get the hats and could not be happier, Of course these don't work in all cases (feedback from slant monitors at higher levels while gigging) but for playing in small venues, places of worship, or at home, they can't be beat for flexibility if you can afford them.
