They were deep and powerful monsters meant for larger venues.  That picture was from the late 80's.

Pasha, using the hi-hat on your right as your primary?  Are you left handed?  Maybe this question should be a P.M. but I thought you wouldn't mind telling us all...

No, I am right handed, and yes, the right hat is my primary...

Cheers.

With PASHA's unique drum set-up he can find a set of hi hats to play no matter which direction he is facing!   Wink

I am working on a hat on right side, I like it for a lot of reasons, but I have it set up to clap with the set on the left, using the same pedal. I guess that could be considered a sort of primary, but I wil always use the one on the left more because it is more fun... Grin Cool

Tomm,

How did you set them up (or modify them) to both close with the one foot stroke?

Just curious!

Briefly (because if I went into detail it would bore most people to sleep) it was a matter of using a universal joint type connection to an extension off of the foot pedal.  The universal joint goes up to a bracketed/reinforced tube which houses a small portion of a sliding cable, a cable with a flexible sheath, which is routed to the bottom of the hi-hat pipe which holds the action mechanism and cymbal holder.

Of course there were a couple of issues with the return spring action, distance and synchronizing the clap stroke, bracketing and providing a reasonable mounting devise for the cymbal stand without adding a tri-pod. 

All-in-all it was a challenge but I have been in the crafted trades nearly as long as I have been a drummer, so it is just something else I do.

Tomm,

Sounds unique and I hope it is helping to inspire some new playing techniques.

I hope you are enjoying it.

I continue to see the "second set of hi hats with a remote cable pedal" in soooooo many tour stage set-ups.  I think that a second set of hats with a contrasting sound pallete is totally cool.....although it hasn't (to date) been a requirement for the calls I get.

For all of you who are using the second set of hi-hats or those working on intergrating them into your stage set-up; I think it is something that the readers of the DSA Forum would find interesting. 

I encourage you all to share more of your experiences with developing dexterity with the second set of hi-hats.  Cool

I'm sure somewhere on DSAA I have told the story of my son providing me with a total remote hi-hat set up, cyms included.  Wow, is this a hoot.  Really enjoy the new possibilities...to be posted soon.

Mine has a quick release clutch, I use it mostly when I want to do syncopated double kick with a closed hat. otherwise they sound pretty much the same.
