If you were to rank the importance of your gear, chances are hi-hat clutches wouldn't be near the top of your list. But if you really think about it, without them you'd be pretty hard-pressed to get your sound just right. Developed to allow drummers to adjust the top cymbal of their hi-hat, this indispensable piece of gear may go unnoticed, but it's anything but insignificant.
With standard, drop-lock, triple lock and many other designs found here, chances are that you'll find what you're searching for in this section. Depending on how you want to control your hi-hat, there's something for most configurations. To start, consider how you'd like your hi-hat to work. If you've grown accustomed to the standard style of clutch, then definitely check out the SC-4421D Hi Hat Clutch Standard by Gibraltar. With a timeless design and a 5-year warranty, it works exactly as you'd expect it to. If you feel the standard construction hinders the full potential of your hi-hat, then consider something more advanced like the Axis Pro Clutch Hi-Hat Cymbal Clutch. Featuring a 3-point feltless washer system that 'cradles' your cymbals, it's durably crafted of aluminum for a lightweight finish.
