  • Does the CY-5 Clutch actually do anything?

    By that I mean, can I adjust the "openess" of the hi hat by tightening the clutch? I've got a TD-11KV kit, which includes the CY5 cymbal and PD8 pedal for the hi hat. I'd love to be able to make it little less open when I take my foot off the pedal. I've tried tightening the clutch, but it doesn't seem to make a difference to the sound (I'm running a V-expressions kit on the advice of this forum). Any thoughts or alternate suggestion to achieving the same result?

    Not exactly related, but I wanted to say a quick "thanks" to all the posters on this thread. I've learned a ton already. Nice to see communities like this still exist.

    No, the clutch does nothing. You should be able to adjust the pedal open in the module but you will have to read the manual for that info.
    Good luck

      To elaborate on this, keep in mind that given the cymbal/module combo you have, the somewhat limited ability to tweak the HH is a feature not a bug. In all probability, you might not achieve the desired result. A cautionary note: there's no guarantee if you went uber high-end on the HH/module combination that you'd achieve the desired result. Or achieve it easily. HH performance in edrums is probably the most user-dependent/anal/sensitive issue we continue to see.
