I am fortunate enough to be able to play regularly on a Yamaha DTX950 kit. Love the pads, cymbals are OK, and was originally in love with the hi hat because our previous kit was the DTX Extreme I or II and the hi hat was awful Ridiculously bad.
Last night I had the chance to play on the new Roland TD30KV. Holy cow. A universe of difference in the hi hat, and even the cymbals. The hi hat was literally like playing my acoustic with my Zildjian New Beats. Incredible. Even the cymbals seemed better overall than the Yamaha. Still prefer the closed cell foam of the Yamaha pads though.
Anyway, does anybody out there know if I could use that Roland hi hat with the Yamaha kit?
Thanks for reading this long message.
