Re: Do you need a hi-hat drop clutch with a double bass pedal?
Depends on how open you leave your hats at the rest position to start with . If you leave them pretty close together, then you won't need it. When you plsy double bass, you can hit then and have that sizzle effect of half open hihats. If you like them opened more (like I do) , you'll need it . You won't be able to sizzle but will have them close .
