    Mounting HH

    I'm assuming you're using a CY-5 for the HH on your TD-6. I use a couple of Gibralter L-Rod ball arms to mount my two HH on my setup. It gives me a lot more flexibility for space and height. If you see these where ever you get your drum parts, make sure to get the 10.5mm diameter post.

      As you are in the US, you could look at Hart's X-Hat arm, as it's a very solid piece of kit and designed for the job. You should be able to see it in my kit pic or if not look here:

        The new TD-9 kits have an all new hi-hat mount for the CY-5. It provides a lot more height adjustability. You can see it in the TD-9 kit demos that Roland has posted on their website.

        But, I don't know if they are offering specific parts for individual sale yet. Perhaps another member here knows. (Drew?)

            I just bought a CY5, and I already have the Hart X-Hat arm. It does not fit. The diameter of the Hart rod/post where the CY5 cymbal would mount is too small for the CY5 clutch hardware. The manual indicates the rod diameter must be between 10.5-11.5mm (7/16-1/2"). I'm not sure what the Hart diameter is, but it is smaller than 10.5mm, hence too small.
            Church: Roland TD-12KX V-Stage w/ substitutions: PD125BK + snare stand, 3 PD105-BKs (no PD-85s), 1 CY-12R/C, 1 CY-14C, 1 CY-15R, VH-11 cymbal mounted to rack + FD7 -- much better than VH-11 cylinder trigger thingy; DW3000 pedal, Roland KC-350 monitor, Roc-n-Soc Nitro throne.
            Home: Hart GigaPro (2003, TE3) but with a Roland FD7 HiHat pedal and an extra CY-5, TD-8, Axis-A pedal, Roland SPD-20, DrumKAT Turbo, Sony 7506 headphones, PM-30 monitor, Roc-n-Soc Nitro throne.

              do you think the mount you use for your Toy Splash would work for mounting a cy-5 as a HH onto a stand alone rack?

              Thanks,

                What a pain! I have my Hart on a standard clutch, so have no issues there.

                "do you think the mount you use for your Toy Splash would work for mounting a cy-5 as a HH onto a stand alone rack?

                Thanks,"

                If that was aimed at me, then absolutely no reason why not. It has a standard sized cymbal post.
