After the KT-9 beaterless kick pedal, Roland presents the FD-9, an innovative Hi-Hat control pedal for quiet night practice on electronic drums.
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 is said to provide dramatic noise reduction when the pedal is depressed. This compact pedal is also said to deliver authentic hi-hat feel for enhanced expressiveness, with smooth transitions between open/closed/half-open positions.
Designed for open-ended flexibility, the FD-9 is compatible with Roland’s full range of electronic percussion gear, from the OCTAPAD SPD-30 to the HandSonic HPD-20.
