Re: Legless Hi-Hat Stand
Where does the stand get anchored? In the old days, a legless hat was attached to the appropriate kick in a double-kick kit. That was fine, as it placed the hat pedal next to that kick's pedal, but it also meant accepting the hat's position based on where that kick sat. Often it resulted in the cymbals being farther away from the snare than was comfortable.
Personally, I've never had a problem with my hat's legs being in the way of other stands or the 2nd kick pedal.
