hi hat upper rods


Silver Member
Anyone know what pull rods will fit a PDP Concept hat? Gibraltar makes a metric and "standard" rod but beyond those "specs" I can't find any more detail.

Go to a good hardware store (not Lowe's or Home Depot) with your hi hat stand and find a bolt that will fit (probably 1/4-20 or the equivalent metric) and determine the thread. Buy some rod stock and a thread die and make your own. The die will be the the most expensive part, probably $7-8. Then you can make it any length you want.
