The new V-Hi-Hat VH-13 offers a perfectly smooth transition when playing the hi-hat from a fully open position and slowly closing it. Playing in the half-open or even in a slightly open position, the sounds remains constant. And the foot-closed sounds and foot splashes have become easier to control.

Derived from the groundbreaking VH-13 hi-hat, Roland's VH-11 combines two hi-hat cymbals into one with an ingenious one-piece floating design. Amazingly, it performs like a real hat, and provides easy setup on conventional hi-hat stands.


The Technology Within

Inside the V-Cymbal's bell and edge is a thin film-like sensor that lies beneath the rubber playing surface, instantly detecting stick position, velocity, and edge pressure (for cymbal choking). Another important design detail: The cymbals are not completely round, which minimizes vibration that can cause mis-triggering.


Quest For the Perfect V-Cymbal

Developing the ultimate electronic cymbal required extensive research from the world's leading R&D team. The result . . . Roland arrived at the perfect combination of internal and exterior materials that are durable and can properly simulate the resistance and swing amount of an acoustic cymbal.
