  • Metal flashing for e-hihat (conductive)?

    I remember soemone talking about using a type of thin metal flashing on the inside of his hi-hats to complete the circuit for his switch to toggle between the hi-hat functions. It basically allowed the hats to sound closed when closed, and open when open, because the flashing was inside the hats and touching (thereby completing the circuit) when closed.

    I currently use a spring under my hi-hat pedal, and it's not very stable. I'd like to use that flashing, but I have no idea what it was or where to find it.

    Help?

    I would imagine such a device wouldn't be very acurate while playing hard(er), and half open (etc) would be impossible.

    sounds like a hellfire switch with the bottom hat taking the role of the lower sheet of metal, and the top hat taking the role of the upper sheet.

      I think that's the aluminum stuff I want. I'll just have to keep it open far enough that it doesn't incidentally touch when playing "hats open."

      I use a DM5, so the partial open playing isn't an issue. I just have open and closed.
