Default DTX500 hi hat foot pedal problem

More problems with this kit..the foot pedal for the hi hat needs to be pressed very hard for it to actually register the 'closed' sound, and often while I have my foot pressed down I get the 'open' sound instead. What can I do to adjust how much pressure I need to apply to register the closed sound?

thx

Hi...I have this same kit and have experienced the same problem. It is annoying, I agree. Maybe mine is more broken in? but I seem to have experienced the problem resolving itself to a certain degree...it's still not great though; the "feel" is not ideal.

I think there is a calibration for that in the brain module...and I believe I went through that as well. Interested to hear what you find...

I think there is a rubber "stopper" sort of part in there that dampens the foot pressure and maybe that can be taken out and re-seated or cleaned around that area...I have not tried this though
