    Default Remote hi hat stand

    Hey all, currently experimenting with my setup a bit. I'd like to pick up a remote hi hat stand that I can open/close with my left foot but play with my right hand in an open setup.

    Before anyone says it; yes I have been playing open with my left hand just for the hell of it. I'm right hand dominant and I'd like to retain that open feel.

    Does anyone have experience and/or suggestions for a remote hi hat stand and setup?

    i use the 9502 right now,silky smooth,as fast as any conventional HH stand,but i want to try something else just because , the tama unit in a very near futur. the tama use a cable made by a top brake cable maker who provides top level cables for world class mountain bikes. seems like the tama has the best remote system right now..

    Mine's an older Pearl (RH-800) which is not the prettiest, nor the smallest, but it does the job, and still works perfectly.




    You can't go wrong with an RH-2000 (current model is RH-2050), although personally I don't care for the legs on the footboard (many have removed them). Get creative with hardware and you can do away with them;



    Although I changed this rather bulky, and not massively adjustable, hardware concoction for a Yamaha HSAT-920, which is an incredibly simple but nifty bit of kit



    And added a Tama Cobra Clutch to give a bit more control over the remote hat when using double bass



    (Since the addition of an 8" tom, I've moved the static hi hat stand over to the left some more, so the remote hat pedal is now between the static hat and let bass drum pedals)

    one of the requirement for a very smooth and fast remote system without any grit, is making sure the cable run somehow ''naturally''' , wich generally means the cable forming a loop close to the pedal . never try to force the cable straight,or into a form instilling an internal resistance ,the wire rubbing tight against the sleeve's wall . unless your pedal run right under the HH's a 6ft cable is best. if you play it in the middle of the FT's at the opposite end of the kit, a longer one permitting a loose loop from the cable is preferable.

    Good stuff. I'll have to find one with a longer cable. I'd like the pedal on the left side of the kit and the hats on the right by the floor toms.

    My Pearl RH2000 has plenty of cable from far left foot position, to hats on other side of kit behind floors.

    Mine has the standard 6ft cable, and I have no problem with the pedal on the left and the hats on the right

    Still the most overkill pedal-bracing solution - I love it!

    It's low, hard to see, and doesn't move an inch.

    Pedals as they are now (left to right - Cobra clutch, main/left hi hat stand, remote/right hi hat, left bass drum), and the Yamaha HSAT-920
