Drums & Percussion/Hihat


Hi mate I've got a paiste hi hat but when I move the top cymbal up to make it open the cymbal just slips back down again I've fiddled about with it I don't know what to do


Hi Tom,
I think its simply the case that you need to buy a new hi-hat clutch if the top cymbal is not staying up.

Here's an example of what you  need:

Don't no what country your in, here's the UK price: 9.95

Let me know how u get on

Cheers Paul

I can answer questions about repairing drums,recovering,modifying,and custom design. Questions about gigging ie. attitude to others, agents,punters,band members, family and friends etc. The philosophy of drums in general, oh yea there is a philosophy in drums and drumming.


Past/Present clients: I have played in the Uk, gigging with various types of bands, groups, artists, both on a local level, nationwide and in other countries, Australia, America and Amsterdam. I have been involved in recording studios, session playing and also teaching. I play in a local praise and worship band at present, and nationwide meetings as and when required.
