Good, but only for 7/8

By Winged Wheel Watcher

Comments about Gibraltar SC-4980J Hi-Hat Cymbal Seat:

According to Gibraltar's website, this can be used with either 5/8" or 7/8" diameter pipes. It will NOT work on a thinner, 5/8" pipe. I was able to get it to work on my thinner (vintage) pipe by wrapping the top of the pipe in some duct tape (just enough so that this seat would cover it fully), than pounding the seat on with a rubber mallet. It works fine and holds securley, and you can't tell the duct tape is underneath it, but just a heads up if you plan on using this on a smaller or vintage pipe diameter.

Too big for Pearl H72W stand

Comments about Gibraltar SC-4980J Hi-Hat Cymbal Seat:

I have a Pearl H72W hihat stand. This seat appears to be the same size as the original Pearl seat on the stand, but the inside diamater is bigger. It just sits on the hihat stand tube and is loose. It works anyway even though it is loose, but it could rattle in a recording situation.

FYI- This part will not fit a 7/8" tube!

    Comments about Gibraltar SC-4980J Hi-Hat Cymbal Seat:

    Bought this to replace a missing hi hat seat. It will not fit inside or outside of a 7/8" OD tube. Buyer beware because they will not accept a return because of "buyers remorse". Musician friend should update and clarify the description on this item. It surely is not a universal fit. By my measurements- the inside diameter is 3/4" and the outside diameter is 15/16". That means it should fit over a 3/4" tube and inside of a 1" tube with a bit of play. Check your needs carefully before ordering.

    Comments about Gibraltar SC-4980J Hi-Hat Cymbal Seat:

    I am prepping a older hihat stand for sale. This does fit a little big around a 5/8" tube. But put a cymbal on it and it works perfectly well.

            Comments about Gibraltar SC-4980J Hi-Hat Cymbal Seat:

            This is a great part. But I discovered upon arrival that, in spite of what I had read in some other reviews, it is for a 3/4" tube. I only gave 4 stars because Gibraltar should give the specs in their ads and then the retailers could as well. I adapted it for my use but some folks may not know how.

              Your hi hat cymbals need to be nested correctly to sound good. This does that and protects them from key holing.
