The First Electronic Hi-Hat Designed Like an Acoustic.
The breakthrough Roland VH-12 V-Hi-Hat precisely models the look and feel of its acoustic cymbal counterpart. The VH-12 mounts on any acoustic hi-hat cymbal stand. The new Roland V-Hi-Hat uses top and bottom cymbals with full motion capability for ultra-natural stick/pedalwork, and is designed to work with the enhanced dynamics of the TD-20. The dual-trigger VH-12 electronic cymbals can convincingly create a range of hi-hat sounds from open to closed including the half-open position with all of its delicate nuances. By applying pressure to the pedal (even after closing), you can vary the pitch and decay for playing fast and tight articulations--just like an acoustic hi-hat!
Your choice of electronic sounds with very real feel. Do it today!

Comments about Roland VH-12 V-Hi-Hat:
I have been using a VH-11 with my Roland TD-20 for about 2 years, but I had some mild issues with the VH-11. Particularly if I was hitting the VH-11 with quarter notes and leaving it a bit loose with my hi-hat pedal - it would choke off, due to it swinging alot on the stand. Tried multiple adjustments as reccommended in the manual, but could only improve it slightly. The VH-12 has no such problems. It picks up every nuance of my hi-hat playing, without choking off. The bottom cymbal is kept from swinging by a plastic tension cable. My only concerns are how stong the tension cable is (if it breaks you can get replacements from Roland), and the small link cable you have to put in beteen the two cymbals to connect them. Inevitably, at the end of a show, I will try to pull the top cymbal off and forget about the link cable. It hasn't broken yet, but I do have a spare (again available from Roland) just in case. Anyway, this is the best electronic hi-hat system out there IMHO; just a bit pricey.
