> > > Get inspired: DW Hi-hat Drop Clutch

Some time ago we have launched new series of videos under our Get inspired banner. Those are very short clips showing practical applications of new, not-so-obvious or slightly overlooked effects, hardware or accessories from various manufacturers, and stuff made by us.

Today we want to introduce you to a very smart invention which can help drummers around the world. It’s made by the great DW company and it’s called  DW Hi-hat Drop Clutch. Drummers who don’t have time for unscrewing the clutch, changing the height of cymbal and screwing it back. With clutch by DW you can open your hat, make it tight or set it in between with one simple move! It can be very useful for drummers who are using double pedal. Especially when they want to keep the hi hats closed when playing with both feet.

Whole clutch is very solid. After screwing it to the rod there is no possibility of slipping of it. Thic felt keeps the cymbal in right position. Whole mechanism is located on the upper part. There is a small lever and round metal part with grooves. Turing the lever makes cymbal go up and down, which gives you amazing sound opportunities. Whole thing  is a system patented by DW craftsmen. We must admit that it works just perfect! Using this clutch gives you the feeling of safety. Watch our short presentation and check your local drum shop for it!
