    yeah I use one with my VH-12 & TD-20. Works fine for me although if you like the top edge of your hats lower than 33.5" or 85 cm you may have a problem as the base shaft of the stand is quite tall and with all the extra tension bits that the VH-12's use comin off the bottom of the hats thats about a low as they will go. If you like your hats silly high this won't be a problem with this stand as the centre spindle stands almost 4feet tall

      I have one with a VH-11. No problems and works well, and the two legs allow easy placement.

        That's a relief. I just gambled and bought one on sale for the VH I have on the way. Thanks for sharing your experience!

          I would recommend a remote hh stand like the Pearl RH2000. I use a similar DW remote hat with my VH-11. It allows you to mount the top part on your rack, and the pedal can go anywhere underneath.


          Good luck.

            Actually you might have a slight problem - on the old elim stand the screw in rod used to lock, on the new ones it continues to spin even when locked, which means your hi hat will spin. No idea why they changed it, crap idea, still I used some superglue and 'fixed' it.

                duct tape! works wonders. always.
                and you can "undo" in a flash to pack up.

                  I have an Eliminator with a VH 12, great build quality. I had a Tama but it wasn't very smooth which made it almost impossible to get a sizzle sound. The Eliminator has cured this.

                  I had to take the memory lock off to get the hats just about low enough, but I have them lower than some people because I don't play crossed so hopefully you won't have a problem.
