I'm new to drums (played bass for years), been playing a while for our churches kid's department. Of course they get the hand-me-down drums that are falling apart. i got tired of re-threading the nut on the hi-hat half way through playing so I replaced it with this. Affordable, does it's job, no slip. Works well!

The only negative I would say is if you are new to drums and have never set one of these up, there are no directions with it...but then again, it's not rocket surgery.

This drop clutch physically does not work. If you have the hi hat closed, because of the vibrations of hitting the hi hats, the drop clutch will actually reattach and open your hi hats again. To fix this, you have to spread out your hi hats a full inch, making it sound like you're hitting a trash can lid and nothing like a hi hat. Even when the drop clutch is disengaged and NOT slipping back to open, it sounds like it's open and not the tight sound you want from a closed hi hat. This product was not even a little useful to me and i am going to go find a drop clutch from another company. Very disappointed.

Wow! What a deal!!

Comments about Gibraltar Hi-Hat Drop Clutch SC-DC:

This clutch functions great! It did not want to cooperate well, when I would strike it at first. You have to really lay into it, with your stick to get it to drop. I'll let you in on a little secret folks, buy a set of Gibralter throne feet (the small none's) #SC-PC13. You can squeeze one foot right onto the strike lever. it fits perfect! Now you can really nail it with your stick and not worry about wearing out the rubber on the lever (or breaking your sticks). "You're welcome" Gibraltar!!

Comments about Gibraltar Hi-Hat Drop Clutch SC-DC:

I have never used one of these, so I didn't know how to put it on. After a little tinkering, I figured it out, and WOW, does it work amazingly!I've had it on and have been using it every day for about 9 months now, and it hasn't worn down or been broken; and I wail on it pretty hard. For the price and what it does, I suggest imediate purchase....that is, if yer man enough to handle it''s awesome-ness....

Bad Clutch-Bad Price

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Gibraltar Hi-Hat Drop Clutch SC-DC:

ive had this drop clutch for over a year now. it does ok. one thing i have a problem with is when i hit the lever it doesnt always want to "clutch" the hi-hat. also, when i play, it spins around making it hard to get to. the screw to tighten the clutch to the bar always unspins so i have to retighten it. if u want to play the hi-hats hard at all, rethink it. the clutch grasps the hats and they come open again. what a pain! on the plus side, this drop clutch is easy to adjust to any style of playing. i would recommend it to people not planning to play hard music. anyone else, dont waste your money. gibraltar needs to rethink the price. (way too high!)

        My last clutch would unscrew and I would lose the bottom Hi-hat. I like the key lock for bottom hat.

                I would have given this 5 stars, but unfortunately I cannot use it. My hi hats are 60s vintage A Zildjian, the the hole diameter is too small for this drop clutch. Funny that the DW clutch I have fits just fine.

                It is quite similar to the DW I use on my show set. Don't hesitate to buy this because it did not work for me. It

                                  We bought one of these several years ago. It took a short time to tweak it so that it picked-up cleanly. It's worked flawlessly for heavy-metal drumming since then. We only bought this again because the top half was left behind when we packed up after a gig. The new top half went onto the clutch with no tweaking necessary.

                                      I'm not quite sure what to think of this. It works great until you start playing heavy with it in the drop position. Half the time it will recatch it's self if you're play very fast and heavy on it. Maybe I just don't have it set right yet

                                        Nice little drop clutch for the price. Adjustable to fit different size hi hat poles. Felt is pretty decent.
