|Designed for use with the Alesis® D4, DM5 or the DM Pro, the LAYON Hi-hat Trigger Assembly is intended to use existing acoustic drum set hardware for support and|
|positioning. The Hi-hat Trigger Assembly fits on any hi-hat stand. When interfaced with any of the Alesis® drum modules, a momentary switch produces these triggering affects: open, closing and closed.|
Three affects are provided by the Hi-hat Trigger Assembly: one from the LAYON Cymbal Trigger, included; one from the piezo transducer, located in the lower half of the assembly and one from the momentary switch, located in the lower assembly.
The top half of the LAYON Hi-hat assembly includes the clutch which, as with all hi-hats, carries the hi-hat cymbal. The velocity sensitive closing beater is also carried by the hi-hat clutch. The lower half of the assembly includes: a roller switch to signal the drum brain whether or not the hi-hat is closed or open and also encloses the transducer which signals the drum brain of the closing event's velocity.
The LAYON Hi-hat Assembly is manufactured from structural fiber glass reinforced plastic composite and 5/8" steel plate. The steel components are chrome plated to prevent corrosion and to maintain a quality appearance.
