A double-bass drum must have.

The DW Drop-Lock Hi-Hat Clutch closes hi-hat cymbals without foot pressure, thus allowing you to play closed hats and double bass simultaneously. Disengage and drop the top cymbal by hitting the clutch with a drumstick. Step on the pedal and the DW Drop-Lock Hi-Hat Clutch attaches itself at its original position.

  • Fact.......You Need This.

    As reviewed by Shira Kashi on 5/14/2010

    The drop lock clutch system has undeniably changed my sound. This item is comparably small and CHEAP..... but when I bought it, it enhanced my drumming experience. Because for me personally, I like options for different sounds and this product gave me that option. I did have to mess around with it to find the perfect spot to tighten it so it would'nt automatically lock up on me. But it is awesome to finally have the ability to use my double kick and have the closed hi-hat sound I wanted. In short, the DW Drop-Lock Hi-Hat Clucth is worth it, I guarantee it.

  • Utterly Fantastic

    As reviewed by Pearldrummer on 1/8/2011

    I got this about six months ago before i even got my double pedal and it is AMAZING. well worth it. the wing nut has never come loose on me, the key nut on the bottom keeps the entire thing from coming undone, and it even has a hole to put the wing nut in so you can make it a standard clutch. not to mention the fact that the lever comes off to the side unlike others that go up and down so it is easy to hit it going downward instead of having to hit it on the side, an astounding product!

  • Product Needed Modification

    As reviewed by Page on 3/23/2015

    One thing I noticed about the drop clutch is that there was a lag in hats when I tried to use it normally. When you step down on the pedal there is a small gap at the hook that picks up the hat. I thought there had to be a way to fix this problem so I first used a piece of rubber from a tire patching kit to take up the space and even though that worked somewhat it didn't fix the problem because sometimes the rubber would pinch and the clutch would get stuck. I finally found a rubber washer at Walmart and sanded it on sandpaper to get it thin enough and placed it between the hook and the top of the hats. Now when I lift my foot on the hi-hat pedal I have immediate response and the clutch works just as it was designed as well.
