    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.

    I would not trust this product for performance use. to be fair I think Gibraltar makes good quality hardware for the money, racks, stands, but this product did not even hold up in the home studio.
    I was initially pleased with this drop clutch since it looked to be better quality than the older style Gibraltar drop clutch that it replaced. after maybe 30 hours of playing the set screw that goes under the top cymbal stripped out. I took the screw out and found the bottom cymbal nut casting had cracked because it is made of cheap pot metal. Thus, I have broken two Gibraltar drop clutches. To be fair, I play hard. I will try a DW clutch.
    appears to be high quality but appearance is only surface deep, it's made of cheap cast pot metal
    it was fairly inexpensive so not a total loss but one would not think of a hihat clutch as a disposable item

          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.

            I bought this clutch about 8-9 years ago. I love it! After a while the rubber part on the lever came off, but thats to be expected. I have never had a problem with this clutch. Still have the same one after almost a decade with no sign of giving out.

                    quick and easy to use. Perfect for double bass drum user. I should of got this years ago. More expensive brands are just that............. more expensive. This works good as gold. This makes my transition from open hi hat to closed a breez.

                      The quality, purpose and dependability asks the question: "Why spend much more for something that accomplishes the same feat?" This product works great!
