I]My main hi-hat (stand?) now is my Yamaha remote cable. This one, another keeper, for sure. It gets into places that normal stands can't. Like behind my snare (12 'o clock).
I've been playing off and on for 40 years, but very new to setting up my drums other than the "Normal" way. The idea of a HH stand behind the snare intrigues me. Since I don't have a remote to play with can you tell me the plus's and any drawbacks of having your HH there?
Does it take getting used to? As I read these boards and look at videos I'm all about efficiency. Having had 4 back surgeries the more efficient I can be in my movements around the kit the better for pain and stamina. I just recently went from 5 piece to 4 and found freedom in losing a rack tom. So now I got some space to play with. Thanks, Spiney

BTW for me the most efficient kit I ever played was a Drumkat. A whole kit in about 2 sq Feet.
