Default Remote hi-hat question.

So I'm thinking about putting a hi-hat at my right behind the floor and having its pedal go next to the regular hi-hat and double bass. Do you guys know/think if the cable is long enough on this to be able to do that?

If that is the 8 ft. cable, it should be plenty long enough. I run mine under the kick.

That cable is long enough.

How about do away with the cable altogether, an electro magnet on the HH activated by a wireless remote foot board?

Does anyone make those, or is that a DIY project?

Somebody is going to make one someday and it'll be the shit. A simple wireless controller foot board mated to an electro magnet operated HH, magnet strength (pull) adjustable.

Advantages:

ZERO latency

No contact vibration transfered to foot

Drop clutch imitation feature


Disadvantages:

Foot board would be battery powered

Electricity required for HH


Maybe Bill Bachmans next project(?)
