  • Keeping hi-hat in closed position.

    Hey Guys,

    Its my first post so go easy

    I have checked the forum using the search engine on this topic but no joy.

    recently returned to drumming after a 15 year break. Have a purchased a TD3KW to see whether i still enjoy it and if so i'll hopefully upgrade next year.

    Anyways, to my question. I have a DW5000 double bass pedal set up which fits nicely with my kit. Now my problem is i cant seem to find any setting on the td3 module to kepp the hihat closed.

    Does anyone know of a setting or maybe there's something on the hihat pedal i can flick/switch click etc to keep the hihat in a closed position while i unleash my internal rock god monster.

    Any advise would be greatfully recieved

    If you try a search with the words 'hihat clutch' you might get better results.
    HERE'S my results with those terms.

    There are a number of DIY solutions if you are OK with simple electronics and they won't void your warranty
