Anyone else using a Tama Hat Stack?

I just got one last week and changed up a splash that was mounted on an extension over one of my other crashes to the Hat Stack. I just love it. When used with a small splash (8" AAX O-Zone in my case) it does not affect hi-hat function at all, and makes a great rhythm accent.
I just love simple, low cost things that enhance my life! ;)
Here's a link to a promo vid - not me. :)

I've been using something similar for years now, but mounted on my secondary hats. I just use a regular hi hat clutch mounted upside down tho. It does exactly the same. Currently I have a bell placed there. I used to have a splash.

HH stacks are evil IMO, especially on TAMA HH rods which are anemic. You're just bending your HH rod everytime you hit the stack with gig worthy intensity.


I wouldn't suggest but for the lightest of players.

I've got a small light splash and I don't think the force compares to when I'm hammering the hats themselves so I'm not worried. I'll update the thread if things go south, but it really doesn't look like an issue to me.
BTW, I'm not a light player, but I do use 5A Sugar maple sticks so I'm not swinging with a lot of mass.
