    Default Home-Made Remote High-Hat Stand (pics inside)

    First of all, please do not bombard me with the questions along the lines "how did you make it." I can tell you a very basically how I did it but I will get a full guide of exactly how I made it within this next week. In fact I am in the process of doing so right now.

    I just made a thread in the hardware section but apparently there isn't very much traffic through there because it is getting almost no replies.

    Anyways, this is my home-made remote high-hat stand that used to be the standard high-hat stand that comes with the Pearl Rhythm Traveler drum set.

    The materials used were air brake line, wire rope, heavy gauge sheet metal, various pipe fittings, carburator springs, brazing rod, cutting torch (for the brazing), and some graphite speedometer cable lubricant.

    I basically just cut the legs off, fabricated an oversized pedal plate, cut the stand in half, used some air brake line (for the cable housing) and some wire rope to link the two ends together, and inserted a couple of carburator springs between the bottom high hat and top high hat to aid in lifting them back up when you take your foot off the pedal. It also took a little bit of graphite lube to get everything working properly.

    On with the pics.
