I've used most of the drop clutches on the market �ۡ���� most recently DW's. The Pearl is hands-down the best of the bunch. This review is not meant to denigrate DW �ۡ���� I have owned a lot of DW gear over the years and generally think that it's top notch. The advantage that the Pearl has over the DW is the release lever that drops the top cymbal. The DW's release is a horizontal, short, rubber-covered piece that juts out to the side of hi-hat rod. If you don't hit it in the right place it won't release �ۡ���� which happens a lot. I don't think that the release is long enough to get good leverage for easy release. On the other hand, the Pearl's release is vertical and runs parallel to the hi-hat rod. It's long and easy to strike and as a result rarely fails to release. So far it's proven to be very reliable.

I purchased the Pearl DCL300P Drop Clutch a few months ago and it was difficult to put on. At first, it was pretty good until trying to release the clutch with my hi-hat pedal, I noticed that it doesn't work. Though I still have the clutch on my hi-hat, I may as well take it off because it doesn't serve any justice for my drum.

Drop clutch came with the remote hihat I recently purchased, so I got one for my main hihat stand. I have enjoyed Pearl products for years. Sorry to see Guitar Center phasing them out.

      Comments about Pearl DCL300P Drop Clutch:

      I have always loved Pearl's hardware. This drop clutch is at a league of its own. I can use it with my hi-hat tambourine without having to find a longer pull rod. It fits perfectly! I used to use a Gibralter and just settled with that one for a while. The Gibralter had a lever that went over the pull rod, which was not great with my tambourine. Hitting the Pearl's vertical lever with a stick is effortless; the Gibralter not so much! The only downside is that there is a thinner and threadless part where the top cymbal is and will angle the top cymbal too much, making rock-motion hi-hat and pedal-bridging impossible, but that is nothing Gorrilla tape wont take care of. The top nut adjustment is also a great feature. Despite one con, I still give it 5 stars.

      Best drop clutch out there

      By Dexter Ewing

      from Winston-Salem, NC

      Comments about Pearl DCL300P Drop Clutch:

      Pearl has perfected the drop clutch as the DCL300P addresses some of the shortcomings of the DW 505 and overall is a more refined drop clutch. I've owned two previous versions on the DW 505, the older one with the vertical, curved release lever and the more current version with the horizontal release lever. I prefer the vertical release lever since it is easier to hit especially on an upstroke of the stick. The horizontal release of the DW and the others on the market now make it more difficult to release as you need to hit the lever with enough force for the clutch to release. The cone shaped top part of the clutch bolt on the DCL300P is not at as steep an angle as the DW 505, thus, making re-engagement of the clutch easy and smooth. Not much pressure is required on the hi hat pedal to get the two parts to interlock again. And another wonderful benefit to the DCL300P is the rubber washers. Something as simple as this really does a lot to improve the sound of your hi-hats overall. The rubber washers allow the top hi hat cymbal to move and vibrate freely which opens up your sound. The closed stick sound has more articulation and clarity while the half open sloshy sound is very vibrant. And the chick sound is louder too. The DCL300P is highly recommended and is pretty much the best drop clutch on the market now.

      Just Ok

      By Wideoutvike

      from Michigan

      Comments about Pearl DCL300P Drop Clutch:

      This drop clutch isn't what I would expect pearl to come out with. The clutch is decent but the sleeve over the bar wears down very quickly(Mine wore down in less than a year). Their is also a hole in the top of the cluch where the latch catches quite easily. It does work quite well but is sometimes a pain fixing some of the issues with it and while playing at a gig, getting the latch caught so it gives a much different sound than if the cluch was fully released by the latch. Overall just ok
