Playing drums at home can be a headache. Traditional acoustic shells are impractical for late-night practice, while many electronic kits are disruptive (even with headphones), due to the sound of the pedals in operation. Roland’s new FD-9 hi-hat controller pedal is the smart way to drive down decibels. Designed for ultra-quiet home practice, the unit’s patent-pending link mechanism means dramatic noise reduction when the pedal is depressed. Expressive players will also appreciate this compact pedal’s authentic hi-hat feel, with smooth transitions between open/closed/half-open positions. With the Roland FD-9, you can play as hard as you like, as late as you want.
Even when you’re drumming with headphones, the sound made each time you depress a standard hi-hat pedal is sure to disturb anyone near your practice space. The FD-9 is the solution, with a newly developed link mechanism that gives a marked reduction in operational noise (50% less in your practice space and 15% less to rooms below, compared with a standard FD-8 Hi-Hat Controller). For drummers who really need to keep it down, the FD-9 works even better alongside the low-noise mesh heads featured on Roland V-Drums, ultra-quiet KT-9 Kick Trigger Pedal, plus the NE-10 Noise Eater Isolation Boards and NE-1 Isolation Feet.
Whether you’re practicing at home or playing out, it’s important to have a hi-hat pedal that picks up all the subtleties of your drumming style. The FD-9 is a great choice for expressive players. The unit’s feet ensure total stability, letting you work the pedal as hard or soft as you like (with the sound module picking up every nuance). The toe-stopper is a familiar touch carried over from acoustic pedals, while
