Default Multiple hi-hat kits

I currently run two hi-hats on my kit and am considering adding a china/trash stack somewhere or, another hat to my left for left-hand lead stuff. Sort of a Gary Chester type of set up.
I was wondering how many of you run at least two or more hi-hats with your kit. Please post some pics if you have any; I'm looking for some inspiration from my fellow DWers.

I wonder who has the kit with the most hi-hats...

I actually have three on my current kit, a primary remote speedy hat in the middle, slosh hats on the right, and a closed mini-hat for variety. I need to get pictures at some point...

I've got a pair of 14" mains and 12" x-hats on the side.



Who has the most hats? This guy...

2 pedal actuated hats, and I have a few stacked cymbal sets that I can switch out to get hat-like sounds... It is great to have different textures to mix up grooves with.

Down to two pair from three. Current left side are 13" Dark Crisps and right are 13" Sabian AAX Fusion x-hats. Usually, the right pair are 14" Dark Energies on a DW cable remote. The third pair would be an 8" splash over an 8" Paiste Signature bell x-hat.

Quite a lot of kits have two hi hats, I also like playing with a hi hat on the right.
If I started this thread I would have asked for kit's with three or more hats, that's when it's getting more interesting.

Truth drummer Travis Orbin (formerly in Periphery, currently in Sky Eats Airplane) has a virtually symmetrical kit, including two hi-hats of slightly different sizes and different models. I assure you this is no gimmick, as his drumming is a flavor I have never heard before.

Yes. IT looks like that because i accidentaly stood on it and it became inverted. Don't worry it's only a cheapo CCCP czech jobbie that i got for a fiver lolz. It's orange because i thought of selling them. Then i found out it sounds much better with the stuff off so i left it.

Big fun and sound from some little drums...lefty double pedal, lefty 18" bass, ride and 2nd hats on right side. Great for thinking outside the box. I'm just trying to challenge myself and keep things fresh.

Thats a cool way to set up your kit utdrummer! It definitely makes you look twice! Do you play BD with your right or left predominantly?

Bram---way too kind on the "best I've ever seen" compliment. I built those several years ago when my shop was open and as they were originally they never sold. Now I'm glad they're still around! All Keller maple shells with RIMS...8" 10" 12" 14" toms, 18" BD and I have 4 different snares lying around that I change out frequently. I actually have a 16" shell covered in the same material but haven't gotten around to ordering the needed lugs or RIMS hanger. They are actually much deeper sounding drums than their size would suggest. This is a great all-around gigging kit as it covers a lot of ground. It's really nowhere near as nice as Brundlefly's DW's, but it fills the bill! Enough about me...thanks again for the comps. Best of luck with your drumming...
BTW...crazy8's...yes, I play bass with my right foot and simply jump on the lefty pedal when I go double bass. It's a really comfortable little kit that sits really low and close together which allows me to sweep as many toms as I need for certain passages rather quickly. It may not be for everybody but it is IDEAL for me. And I DO get a lot of double takes and "I see what you did there" comments. Opens up a lot of dialogue with other drummers.

im seriously considering buying the zildjian zht 10 mini hats to go with my ride, crash, and main 13 inch hats. im super into clean, dry, tight sounding cymbal and drum sounds, and i think a hats/ride/crash/hats setup would be sweet. opinions??????
