Hi-Hat Cymbals

Hi-Hat Cymbals

The hihat is composed of two cymbals that are mounted on top of each other on a specialized stand. They are held in place by a narrow metal shaft that runs through a hollow tube that connects to a pedal. The top cymbal is attached to the rod with a clutch.

It crashes to the bottom cymbal when the foot plate of a pedal is pressed. When the pedal is released, the top cymbal returns to its original position at the top of the lower cymbal. The lower cymbal is fixed on the hollow tube. Hi-hat cymbals are most commonly used in contemporary music like R&B, hip-hop, disco, jazz, rock and roll, house, and reggae.
