Double Bass Drum While Playing Hi-Hat (Drop Clutch)
Wondering how do drummers play double beats involving double bass drum patterns with a two-foot pedal while playing the hi hat instead of a cymbal. Unless they have it set on certain tightness, but i mean the hi hats wouldn't be close together enough would they?
The answer is a "Drop Clutch" used on the Hi Hat. The clutch locks the hi hat cymbals closed by hitting it with a stick. Then when you want normal hi hat action you just step on the pedal.
