I found this from DW. Very nice, but it places the high hat cymbals a little further over than I really need. http://www.dwdrums.com/hardware/9550.htm
Found this from Pearl. Much easier to transport but I'd like the high hat symbols a little further over to the right. http://www.pearldrum.com/products/hardware/hi-hat-stands/h-2000.aspx
Is there anything in between?
Who else makes this kind of stuff?

Thanks.

On the DW Model, both the pedal slider link, and the clamp tube that attaches to the cymbal stand have adjustable length.  That's quite a bit of flexibility.

If neither of those adjustments allows you to place the hi hats into the desired position, then I'm sure a cable operated hi hat would be able to get it "just right".

Ken,

Thanks. By the "pedal slider link," does this mean axle between the pedal and the HH stand (between the two red linkages in the picture)? (I've never used a double bass pedal, so I don't know the words for some of this stuff.) I'm wanting the vertical rod that makes the center of the HH cymbals to be about 6" to the right of the chain of the HH pedal. Is it possible to get a space this small with the DW? Do you know what the minim distance is?

I'd really rather not use a cable HH set up.

Say, do you know of anything else like the Pearl HH? That one looks like it moves the HH over about 2". If the stand just moved the HH a total of 3-4" from the chain of the pedal, that would actually be just fine. It would be sweet to have it all in one unit.

I appreciate your time,
Ripple

A.  Yes, it's the rod that conncets the remote pedal's action to the HH action.

I think the BEST to get answers to your questions about the adjustment capabilities of the DW and Pearl models would be to contact their Customer Services.  That way, your follow-up questions can also be answered by people very familiar with the products.  Both the DW and Pearl web sites have the contact information for reaching a Customer Services Specialist.

Thanks. I'll give DW a call.

Still wondering there's anything made by another manufacture that's like the Pearl HH, but places the HH an inch or two further to the right. Also wondering if anyone makes something like that Pearl HH, period.

See if this model has the flexibility that you want.

Ken,

This one looks like the Gibraltar might work -- definitely puts the HH about where I'd want it, without too much set up trouble.

My experience with cable HH's in the past is that they had too much "flex" or "play" to give a solid HH feel. This is why I was excited to see that DW and Pearl had come up with semi-remote HHs that didn't use cables.

But it looks like there's only a few inches of cable on the Gibraltar, so it may give a pretty solid feel.

Thanks for your time.

I certainly believe is a solution available.  It's just a matter of finding the right one.

I, too, haven't liked the feel of cable operating hi hat linkages, although they have certainly improved a lot over the past several years.

You might also look at Will Denton's hi hat set-up. (Will performs with Stephen Cutis Chapman and Leann Rimes).  He places his hi hats where most drummers place their rack tom.

Anyway, I, like so many of the drummers that are regular readers of the DSA Forum am always glad to help.
