Default Yamaha DTX450k HH65 controller

Hi everyone,

I am new to the forum and drumming.
I just purchased the DTX450K electric drum kit.
I love it so far but noticed with the HH65 Hi hat controller you have to really stomp on it to get either the "chick" Hi hat sound or double bass drum when on kit 3 (rock).
I did change the closed "hi hat foot close position" from 28 to 10 and now I can easily get a hi hat "chick" sound but this does not help when using the HH65 as a double bass drum. You still need to stomp on it pretty hard to get a bass drum sound.

Anyone have this issue and know a solution?

The HH65 pedal sensor is really not designed for double double bass drum playing (as you've found).
Another option you might want to consider is adding a piezo device under the foot plate as described in this post: http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...d.php?t=113443
I prefer the dynamic feel of the Roland FD-8 pedal/s and haven't tried modding my HH65 pedal. Also I couldn't find an easy way to switch it between hihat and kick sounds.
Btw, a major plus is almost no acoustic noise from the pedal to sensor contact.
