DIY Remote H-H stand?


Silver Member
Does anyone know how to make a remote hi hat out of a standard h-h stand? I found one yt video but, the guy doesn't explain how he made his. I know bicycle brake cable is a main component. Just can't figure out a way to attach it or how to place a permanent spring in the upper pipe section.

I tried to make one, but it functioned opposite of the way hi hats should work. Not quite sure what I did wrong.

That is a great idea that the drummer in the video had. Bicycle cable is not expensive and low end hi-hat stands are easy to come by.

I've made one, turned out horribly. it technically worked, but the response was really bad. But I guess that's what you get when the parts are just whatever you can find around dad's shed
