Pearl ePro Live EHH-2 Hi-Hat.

Published on November 21, 2014 by in eDrum News

Pearl EHH-2

The Pearl EHH-2 Hi-Hat is the long awaited multi-piece hi-hat trigger/controller assembly that many Pearl ePro Live users have been waiting for. The Pearl EHH-2 mounts to a standard Hi-hat stand and gives the Pearl electronic drum users a more acoustic like feel to their set-up. Like many other aspects of the Pearl ePro Live drum system, Pearl worked with Alesis (see: Alesis Pro-X Hi-Hat) to produces this new hi-hat trigger/controller set-up that works with the Pearl REDbox module. Please keep in mind that you will need to update your Pearl REDbox drum module’s software to be able to use the EHH-2. Pearl now has the new firmware for their REDbox available as a free download from http://www.redboxsoundshop.com/redbox-v2-firmware.html. For more information on the Pearl EHH-2 and accompanying software, please visit: EHH-2 Hi Hat Software is available !
