Roland VH-14D Digital Hi-Hat Cymbal Pad

Groundbreaking V-Drums technology can now be added to your kit! The Roland VH-14D hi-hat cymbal pad tracks velocity, stick position, and foot pedal work.

The groundbreaking Roland VH-14D digital hi-hat launches the electronic hi-hat into a grand universe of playability, offering touch sensitivity, tonal variation, and open/closed resolution that's never been available until now. The two-piece design and thin 14-inch pads provide a familiar look and natural feel, while the high-resolution, multi-sensor system tracks velocity, stick position, and foot work with maximum precision. Foot splashes are reproduced authentically, and you can even mute the cymbals with a hand touch -- just like acoustic hi-hats.

The VH-14D is the perfect complement to the PD-140S digital snare and CY-18DR digital ride, bringing Roland's powerful digital advantages to the three most nuanced pieces in your kit.

For the most expressive VH-14D experience, you'll want to use it with the flagship TD-50X sound module or a TD-50 module with the TD-50X upgrade installed. These modules include sounds that are fully optimized for the VH-14D. Standard TD-50 and TD-27 modules are also compatible with the VH-14D via a free system update. This provides support for the VH-14D's enhanced detection capabilities, but no new sounds are included.
