Default Re: Is there any way to visually tell if the hihat footboard spins?

It is still has three legs and I've already tried once with a double pedal on my tri-legged stand and that is a tight fit. Now I'm disappointed. Crap.
The tripod (leg system) has a wingnut at the top and a drum key bolt at the bottom. If you loosen both, the tripod will rotate. If you are right footed, rotate it counter-clockwise, clockwise if you are a lefty. This will allow you to place your kick pedal and hi-hat pedal right next to each other without the legs being in the way. This stand will do what you want.
