Over the past few years, the drumming world has gone hi-hat crazy—and that is a beautiful thing! It used to be that 14” was the go-to size for hi-hats, and even a pair of thirteens would be considered unique. In the current era of drumming, it is common to see hats consisting of anything from a pair of 16” effects crashes down to 8” china splashes.

Simply attach the auxiliary hi-hat piece anywhere on your kit using a clamp such as the PAKL-157-SP, which will give you limitless options for angle placement.

While the auxiliary hi-hat mount is a simple piece of hardware, it is still packed with has some very handy features to increase playability. No matter what kind of cymbals you place on the PSHX-1, the locking rotator cup allows you to position them at virtually any angle you need, and with the spring-loaded tension adjuster and angle adjustment screw, you can set the perfect amount of tightness or openness between the cymbals.
