        Comments about Gibraltar Quick Release Hi-Hat Clutch:

        Awesome product! This little thing saves me lots of time. As a gigging musician, I have to set up and tear down my kit 2-3 times per week. I am always looking for any little thing that can save me some time. I can set up my hats in about half the time now.

        The quality of the clutch is good. It is solid, and has never slipped on me.

        -1 star: The only issue I have with it is that the quick-release holder can be a little tough to put on. There are captured ball bearings that need to push in when you slide it onto the clutch. I find that sometimes I have to apply quite a bit of force to get it on. It's not a big deal, but I would give it 5 stars if it was a little easier to push on.

        Comments about Gibraltar Quick Release Hi-Hat Clutch:

        When setting up and taking down a drum kit I am often in a hurry in a poorly lit area.
        I have cross threaded the cymbal nut on my clutch.
        I have dropped the cymbal nut and had it roll under things on the stage.
        I have had the cymbal nut loosen and fall off of the clutch while playing the hats.

        Those issues are just memories now :)
        I have both the standard, and the drop clutch versions of these hi-hat clutches and they work great.

        Comments about Gibraltar Quick Release Hi-Hat Clutch:

        Excellent design! Fast and easy to use. accepts every rod I have from vintage (small) to larger modern rods.

        I do wish it had a replaceable nylon sleeve for the cymbal hole like a cymbal stand, but none of my other clutches do either.

        I have used mine over a year, gigging several weekends a month with some higher sound level bands (Rock etc... but not Industrial Screamo or anything) and haven't had a single "quality issue" or failure with the product.

        Warning: you'll want all of your cymbals to be this easy.($$$)

        Also: you might want to experiment with the rod clamp tightness before gigging with it. Mine slipped a few times till I got it right for my foot pressure level.

        I'm buying a 2nd and maybe a 3rd one for all my hi hat stands .... I'm spoiled now

              This clutch makes removal of the top hi hat cymbal quick and easy. I like to swap hats around for different sounds, and it just makes the task so effortless.

              about time

              By Groovinator

              from sunny Cali!

              Comments about Gibraltar Quick Release Hi-Hat Clutch:

              Well it's about time this was made! for many years I thought this could be done and here it is! Very well made, easy to use and solid. I replaced my Tama clutch with this one and played a 2 hour gig. No slippage, it worked perfectly. There are 2 things to keep in mind. This clutch is heavier than a standard clutch, you may have to tighten your hat spring. The clutch is also taller than a standard clutch. Not by much, but if you cut your rod down really low it may be an issue. I would reccomend this product in a heartbeat.

              Freakin' Awesome!!!

              Comments about Gibraltar Quick Release Hi-Hat Clutch:

              Gibralter Engineering at it's best! We all know that set-up and tear-down time is crucial for drummers, and the hi hat clutch can be a wicked pain! This is a MUST HAVE FOR ALL DRUMMERS! It's heavy duty and simple to operate, also you dont have to worry about dropping a nut because it doesn't want to thread on the right way.
              Get it (or 2 if you're like me who have 2 sets of hihats on your kit), you won't regret it!
