    Comments about Gibraltar SC-4420S Hi-Hat Cymbal Clutch:

    I got this to replace my old Gibraltar drop clutch, as I stopped playing with a double pedal. First of all, I love the design of this thing. Instead of a screw digging in to your post, this hugs around it and covers more surface area, preventing slipping, and keeping your stand in better shape. The first thing I did when I got this was threw my hats on it, and put it on the stand. Then, I proceeded to stomp on my pedal, TRYING to get it to slip, but it just wouldn't budge. THAT is quality. The locking mechanism is great. I never have to worry about the nut falling off the clutch while I'm playing. Overall, this is an awesome clutch, and it's very simple to use. I would have gladly paid double for this.

    the whole thing was cheap and broke way too easily. dont buy this
    It's nice to see a cheap clutch with the fisheye at the top and the locking nut.
    i didnt even get to use it once. i put it on my hihat and as i was tightening it to the right height on my stand it just fell apart. the wing nut and bolt completely broke and dont hold any tension let a lone the weight of the cymbal add to that
    i didnt even get to use it once before i broke it, it was an awful value

    Great clutch

    Comments about Gibraltar SC-4420S Hi-Hat Cymbal Clutch:

    I've been using one of these clutches for about seven years. It has never failed and does what it's supposed to do. I bought it because I thought it was intelligently designed. Instead of the top wing nut simply tightening against the rod it pulls a semi-circular piece of metal that "hugs" the rod so it NEVER SLIPS. The locking screw on the bottom "nut" works like a charm. I can't account for the other reviews. Like I said, I've been using it for 7 years and it shows no sign of wearing out. Great clutch!

    A good clutch with one issue

    Comments about Gibraltar SC-4420S Hi-Hat Cymbal Clutch:

    I bought one of these a while back in a local shop because it looked wonderful. I always had problems with the bottom nut coming off mid-song. This one locked so it wouldn't do that anymore. Great feature! BUT - there's a little black allen head screw right above the drum key screw that keeps a piece from falling out. My first one fell out which causes the insert that's adjusted by the drum key to fall out. Lost it, it was gone. I decided to go back to the same shop and buy another one about a year later. Better than the first! Played a battle of the bands in Indiana, 4 hours from my house, that little black allen screw was gone again. 2 clutches now not working right.I was stoked when these were complete but it's a real hastle keeping track of tiny black screws. When they're there it's great. Pearl makes one that has the same features for about the same price (I believe). Gonna go that route this time.Oh yeah! I forgot to say - I never had this clutch slip. Always stayed right where I put it.

    I use this clutch exclusively

    I own both DW 5000 and 9000 hi hat stands, and this clutch works great on both of them. It is basically the same as the standard clutch, except there is more surface area between the clutch and the rod of the stand. I find that this clutch almost never slips. Just like the DW clutch, the bottom nut locks, a really nice feature (but make sure you have a key handy at all times!). A great clutch, heavy duty, and at a great price. To the person who had trouble with slipping, try this: Take your sticks and put one on each flat side of the wing nut. Use them as a lever to get the nut REALLY tight and you shouldn't have any problems.

    I got this because my cheap clutch was slipping. i got this and it slips even more. I'm now back to the cheap one and it never slips. Go with one that screws into the rod, it works much better.
