      A hi-hat stand designed for ease of setup, adjustability and breakdown.

      Gibraltar brings you the first fully adjustable hi-hat stand with the Lightning Rod Telescoping Hi-Hat Stand. This stand is great for quick set up and tear down and also offers infinite adjustments due to the telescoping hi-hat rod. This stand adjusts to very low playing height settings and allows the hi-hat pull rod to telescope down to match the setting. For breakdown the stands upper tube and pull rod independently telescope to a transport setting, no more loose hi-hat rods and upper tube sections to drop or lose.


      • Lightweight and portable
      • Super low positioning even adjusts the hi-hat rod out of the way

      A lightning rod for the adoration of current and future drummers. Order today.

            Comments about Gibraltar Lightning Rod Telescoping Hi-Hat Stand:

            It makes set up and breakdown much more efficient.
            What I like about it the most is that I can change my style of playing without haveing to use different Rods; from Rock, with a hi setting and to Jazz, with a low hi hat setting with no extra rod in the way.

            Great idea, somewhat badly executed

                Comments about Gibraltar Lightning Rod Telescoping Hi-Hat Stand:

                The good:

                The stand is solidly built and really sturdy for its weight. It doesn't wobble even when played on the uneven carpeted surface I have to put up with. It is lightweight and fully collapsible without requiring disassembly, making it perfect for gigging. Being able to adjust the rod length without a hacksaw is amazing. The spring, while not adjustable, is at a good tension and has no problem holding aloft my 14.25" K Custom Hybrids. The action is nice and smooth.

                The bad:

                This thing definitely needed further refinement before being released. The upper tubing has a slot going along its length which allows the rod fastener to move up and down the stand as you play. The problem is that the wingnut comes with 2 tiny rubber washers attached to it that rub up against the sides of the slot, creating friction. So much so that the spring could barely lift my top hat. I removed these gaskets and now the stand seems to play without issue, but this is a pretty obvious design flaw that I'm surprised made it through of testing.

                Overall, this is a decent lightweight hihat stand ideal for regular giggers, but it comes with a pretty serious (though easily fixable) design flaw. Without it, I would've given this stand 4 stars. I really hope Gibraltar refine their design because the idea behind it is very appealing.
