Playing drums at home can be a headache. Traditional acoustic shells are impractical for late-night practice, while many electronic kits are disruptive (even with headphones), due to the sound of the pedals in operation. Roland Hi-Hat Control Pedal FD-9 is the smart way to drive down decibels. Designed for ultra-quiet home practice, the unit’s patent-pending link mechanism means dramatic noise reduction when the pedal is depressed. Expressive players will also appreciate this compact pedal’s authentic hi-hat feel, with smooth transitions between open/closed/half-open positions. With the Roland FD-9, you can play as hard as you like, as late as you want.
Low-noise operation for late-night practice (50% less noise in your practice space and 15% less to rooms below, compared to standard hi-hat pedal)
Link mechanism allows ultra-quiet operation and authentic hi-hat control
Compact design, easy setup and small footprint for home practice
Use alongside other noise-reducing Roland products, including NE-10 Noise Eater Isolation Boards and NE-1 Isolation Feet, for quietest-ever performance
Practice Whenever You Like With Ultra-Quiet Link Mechanism
Even when you’re playing the drums with headphones, the sound made each time you depress a standard hi-hat pedal is sure to disturb anyone near your practice space. The Roland Hi-Hat Control Pedal FD-9 is the solution, with a newly developed link mechanism* that gives a marked reduction in operational noise (50%** less in your practice space and 15%** less to rooms below, compared with a standard Roland Hi-Hat Controller FD-8). For drummers who really need to keep it down, the FD-9 works even better alongside the low-noise mesh heads featured on Roland V-Drums, ultra-quiet Roland Kick Trigger Pedal KT-9, plus our NE-10 Noise Eater Isolation Boards and NE-1 Isolation Feet.
