Roland TD-1K Hi-Hat issues


New member
Hi! New here! Can anybody help with some issues I’m having with my Roland TD-1K hi hat.
I got this second hand and the hi hat is not very sensitive and secondly when I hit it on certain parts it makes a floor Tom sound!?!
Very strange. I’ve tried to adjust the sensitivity and also tried a factory reset.
Any advice?
thanks 🙏🏼

Swap the cymbal with another and check if the problem travels and not cable related. Make sure the rack stands firm and all parts are tightened, and pads don't touch each other, the tom sound can be crosstalk from vibrations. If you can, adjust that in settings, too.
