Default Re: Bent HH stem and clutch won't stay tight

Every hi hat I've had I've cut down to have the stem only an inch or two most above top of hihat cymbal.....Just enough to mount a little tambourine thingy. Takes 5 mins with a hacksaw. I've also sold these cut down stands to others used, so it does not affect resale value either.

You can unbend a rod by removing it from hihat assembly and straightening in a vice, but with CARE.
