OVERVIEW

A hi-hat clutch release system to save a drummer time and aggravation.

The new Quick Release Hi Hat Clutch from Gibraltar sets the standard for pro-level hi hat cymbal hardware. This clutch outperforms the standard clutch in versatility, ease of use and setup time. The quick release mechanism replaces the standard screw-on threaded nut with a spring-loaded lock that slips on and off in less than one second. Just pull down on the collar and it slides off, to reinsert just depress the middle section with your thumb saving you time and making it easy to mount and un-mount hi hat cymbals.

The clutch also does away with threads, meaning no more loosening of the bottom nut - making this the fastest and most convenient clutch available today.

The Quick Release Hi Hat Clutch is also now available in a drop clutch version. All the quick release features with a drop clutch action.

One of the most frustrating things to me about setting up and tearing down my kit is installing/removing the clutch from the top hat cymbal. The quick connect feature on this clutch makes the task simple and quick. There are several negative reviews on here. I sound that at least in one case the quick connect is not being used properly. If you want to place your cymbals very close to one another, the drop functionality may not work. You'll need at least a half inch of space for the drop mechanism to function properly.

The clip that holds the clutch to the rod slips off during the simplest of play. The quick clutch is not so fast as the felts take forever to get over the threads. Timing it against my standard Tama clutch the Quick Release lost. Buy a different Drop Clutch - buy a different clutch - Gibralter really dropped the top cymbal on this one.

    The main problem is that you cannot disengage the hi hat drop arm with a drum stick. So I can't see much use for it.

          Good clutch overall. It isn't quite as easy as the video shows and does stick a little on contact.

                Comments about Gibraltar Quick Release Hi-Hat Drop Clutch:

                This clutch does everything a Drop Clutch should. The horizontal release lever is exactly what I need since I have a set of roto toms over the hat. I really like the quick disconnect feature that fastens it to the top cymbal, great idea. I like my hats close together even when open and I can put the claw anywhere I need it to be over the 'cone' to achieve the small amount of open I want. That takes a little trial-n-error to get it exactly right, but it is achievable.

                        This is a terrible clutch, the drop clutch catches your cymbal and pulls it up unevenly making it almost impossible to keep time with the hi hat. Save your money, spend it on a DW product.

                            When the top hat is dropped the hook catches the the hat and pulls it back up when you don't want it to. I tried playing with the hats further apart, but the bottom line is, I just don't want to. I like where I have my hihats and I want a product that will work for me. This wasn't it.
