    Default Mimic Pro hi-hat compatibility

    I just made the jump to the Mimic Pro from 2Box. Still love the 2box, Ive had it since 2010, but the feature list and playability were not quite on par with what I was looking for...more "real feel." I have searched around a little and it does not seem that the 2box hi-hats (magnetic sensor at cymbal) are compatible with the system. I have the conversion box Jman came up with but I hear that is not compatible either. Shout out to Jman. RIP. So, wondering if there is a comprehensive list for compatible hi-hats or a workaround for what I currently have?

    Thans for any help. Looking forward to really diving into this new system!

    RIP Jman. He would have been the guy to ask for sure and I'm pretty sure he had a work around before his passing. https://www.vdrums.com/forum will have you covered. I use the ATV 14" hats with the mimic and love them. I also came from a 2box and a stealth hihat. I tried the vh13 by roland and preferred the ATV for triggering and feel with the mimic. The only thing the ATV doesn't have, is the hihat bell. That may have changed with a software update but I wouldn't know because I haven't looked in months.

    Hi,

    We haven't had any experience with the 2 Box Hi Hat or the conversion box.

    You might find someone on the Mimic pro Facebook page that may have that answer.

    As far as the list is concerned it is Roland VH-11, VH-11V2, VH-12, VH-12V2, VH-13, Vh13V2, ATV-Ad-H14, Pearl EPC-125

    Hi,

    Some of the Yamaha Hats have been successful but I am not sure of the RHH135.

    RHH135 works for the most part...takes some work/tweaking, though.
