    HELP: Hi-hat pedal not playing "chick" sound.

    So I've had an Alesis Surge Mesh E-Drum kit for close to 3 years, and a little while ago I noticed the hi hat pedal isn't playing the "chick" or closing hi hat sound.

    Sonor Designer Question

    Hi Sonor fans, I recently picked up a used Sonor Designer from Guitar Center, and on receiving it found out that they had failed to send me the legs for the 16" floor tom, or the mounting bracket for the floating 14" floor tom.
