Look Ma, no hands!
The Cobra Clutch is a completely instrument based on an entirely different concept than the drop clutch or auxiliary hi-hats. Instead of activating the hi-hats with the hands and simply letting the top hi-hat drop on the bottom hi-hat, the Cobra Clutch activates the hi-hats the way they should be: with the feet and with control. Plus the Cobra Clutch has something else a drop clutch doesn't: You can set how closed or open you want the hi-hats. It took Tama's designers two years to perfect the Cobra Clutch. But because they did such a thorough job, it will you take you almost no time at all to incorporate the Cobra Clutch into your playing.
