how to adjust the dw 5000 hi hat stand action.

hey guys i have a dw 5000 hi hat stand the two legg heavy stand..

ive only had it since october and havent played around with the feel too much

how can i make it so that I have to step on the hh pedal harder to click the hi hats..

any time im doing a half time feel or whatnot i usually run the hi hat and keep tempo but recently after having snapped the hi hat rod and changing it to a pacific rod (which fit) the action feels a bit too easy.

I want to put a bit more tension on the hi hat pedal so that the hats dont click so fast and so easy.

Hi-hat tension?

Could someone enlighten me on what the tension adjustment does on the hi-hat. How does it work and what is it exactly changing.

I’ll hang up and listen.

I’m not sure but i think the tension adjustment has to do more with the pedal part, and the tube in the center, that moves up and down. The higher the tension, just like on a kick drum pedal, the more risistance, and if there was light tension it would be the opposit.

I hope that answers your question, I’m probably wrong, but you never knoe. So another person who knoes wat their talking about should help this guy.

how do you mount your pearl remote hi hats?

Just wondering how you guys mount your pearl eliminator remote hats? Particularly for those guys that use remote hats as their main hats. not secondary hats way off to the side. Also, if you have any suggestions on good ways to mount the remote hats where the hardware holding em doesn’t slip that would be cool too.

Please upload pics please of how you did it please.

I mount my Pearl Remote Hi-hats directly to my drum rack using standard Gibraltar Multi-Clamps.

There are various clamps that can be used to mount your Remote Hi-Hat stand:

– Pearl UX80 / UX80S

You just have to check out all the different models and see which one will fit best with your desired setup. Some clamps are shorter than others so this factor along with the size of your Hi-Hats will be a main focus.

Usually, people tend to gravitate towards the AX-25L or UX-80 models because they allow the most versatility / mounting options.

I don’t have any pics handy, but I use a long arm with a clamp on the end (I think it’s a UX30). It’s 13" long, I think. I attach it to the nearest cymbal stand, and then I attach an AX30 multiclamp to that, and the AX30 holds the remote hat. The UX30 isn’t completely horizontal. I tilt it up a bit so the energy from each stroke isn’t hitting that arm at a 90 degree angle. I’ve found that if it’s totally horizontal, it may either slip a little or cause a lot of movement in the cymbal stand.

Also, the AX30 isn’t really the perfect tool for the job, since it has angled clamps, and the UX30 is round. I really have to clamp it down to avoid slippage.

Hi-hat Spring Tension

What do you guys typically set the spring tension to on your hi-hat stand? High or low? I just got a new Iron Cobra Lever Glide stand and I’m unclear about some of the options on it.

Pedal plate angle adjustment? What is this? What does adjusting this do?

Stabilizer Adjustment? Underneath the footboard there is a rubber thing you can pull out. What exactly does this do? Please excuse my ignorance.

I like piccolo’s

well i dont have that hi-hat stand but from what i understand, the pedal plate angle adjustment allows you to change the angle of the footboard of the pedal to match the slave of ur double pedal or to whatever is comfrtable
and i think the stabilizer adjustment puts more weight underneath the pedal making the pedal more stable.

oh and i have the spring tension on my hi-hat stand as high as it will go

The hi-hat cymbal is one of the most significant parts of your drum set. Percussionists not only use their hi-hat to set a tempo and maintain the beat of a song, but some players even use their hi-hat as a substitute for their crash. For these reasons, as well as the fact that it has more moving parts than any other piece of drum hardware, the stand you choose for your hi-hat should be given careful consideration. Of course, you can bet that this section has more than enough hi-hat stands to choose from.

With so many top-selling choices, you might be wondering what hi-hat stand is right for you. The good news is that this catalog only offers the most renowned names in drum and cymbal hardware. In fact, companies like Trick, Yamaha, Ludwig and countless others can be found on stages and in recording studios all over the world thanks to the smooth operation and sturdiness of their hi-hat stands. For example, check out the DW 9500TB 2-leg hi-hat stand. Precise and fast, this stand uses a patented double eccentric cam to increase the footboard’s sensitivity in relation to the cymbal’s movement, and the result in an incredibly responsive feel that’s unlike any other hi-hat stand. Additionally, the lateral cymbal seat is a first in hi-hat design, making the bottom cymbal angle very easy to adjust. Pearl is also a leader in the manufacture of hi-hat stands, and the RH-2000 Eliminator remote hi-hat stand is one of the fastest and smoothest remote hats currently available. Earning the praise of many professional players, including the legendary Dennis Chambers, the Pearl RH-2000 Eliminator remote hi-hat stand is an innovative piece of hardware that will certainly impress today’s most demanding players. Your drum kit simply isn’t complete without a hi-hat, and how you utilize the cymbal throughout your playing routine will depend greatly on the stand that it’s attached to. Thankfully, modern hi-hat stands have never been so technologically advanced, and because your options are so extensive, you’ll have no trouble finding a perfect one to help you expand on the capabilities of your performance.

I have bought a Gibraltar hi-hat stand previously and, surprisingly, it was defective but that can happen with any product.

I then decided to buy a Pearl hi-hat stand and I can say that I am totally satisfied with it.

The hi-hats sit on a soft cushion that allow for smooth and stable movement of the hi-hats when they are hit. With other manufacturers’ hi-hat stand bases, the material may be plastic or something and it is not as smooth and stable.

I use it by attaching it to one of my two bass drums. I retract the legs and it stands against the bass drum.

The legs can be pulled out again, of course, to be used as a standalone stand if, for example, one is playing with one bass drum or wants to play with two bass drums but with the stand somewhere to the side on its’ own (not attached to the bass drum).

There is not much more to say. Pearl are known for quality and the prices are good and reasonable. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. One of the best value for money hi-hat stands on the market right now, in my opinion.

It feels to me like the angle of the pedal is way too ‘steep’. For example, when I want to open, it seems like I have to flex my foot back way too far. I am fairly confident that if I were to simply place about a 1.5" block under the heel of the pedal, it would feel a lot better. But that would make my feet uneven, and it seems like there should be a pedal adjustment. I know how to raise and lower the hats individually, or together, but I don’t think any of that addresses what I want, plus it would cause a different change that I don’t want. Can anybody tell me how to make the adjustment I want? Thanks.

Have you looked at the owner’s manual (which is available at the link you provided)?

I don’t know if it has the answer to your question but it seems a good place to start.

The only way to do it on this one is to open up the distance between the 2 cymbals and losen up the spring tension. That will lower your pedal. If you can’t live with thst amount of opening , you need a different hihat stand.

I use older tama Titan , very easily height sdjustable without changing the spring tension on these models.

Thou hast over many options.

1. Lengthen roller chain or replace with longer length of chain. The latter will require removing the pin-rivet things at either end.

2. Remove the roller chain altogether and replace it with something else, like a length of nylon strap that you can make any length you want. You could probably do this with only removing one section of the roller chain if you don’t want to mess with the pins at the ends. Paracord sounds practical too.

3. See that black bumper washer pad thing between the end-of-the-rod-bracket and the diecast frame? Shim there. Get some foam rubber or felt or cork or some usable piece of garbage and make more of that thing but thicker. Maybe cut it up the side and then tape it after so you can push it right on there without dismantling your stand.

Hi Hat/ Double Bass Pedal Positioning??

Check out this picture of Chad Szeliga’s kit. His (primary) hi hat is so close to his snare, yet he has a double pedal as well. Over the years ive grown accustomed to playing my hats lower and close to my snare like this picture, but my hats are still a good deal further away from my snare because of my double pedal or snare stand legs in the way. how does Chad get his hats so close without the snare stand getting in the way? or being able to play the double pedal without his legs constantly banging against the snare? this is a dumb question, but has been on my mind

The existence of your question is something that has baffled me for some time. I’ve personally never had any trouble getting my kick/snare/hat combo to be similar to that in the picture. I just fiddled and figured out how to do it.

In my work as stage manager for a local venue, I see drummers come in all the time who have their hi hat stand completely clear to the left of the slave pedal (literally a foot and a half away from their snare). I don’t understand how they can set up the kit that way and leave it like that. Granted, they are usually pretty terrible drummers who are more focused on getting chicks and "fixing it in the studio" so it doesn’t matter all too much.

I would recommend that you mess around with your set up until it works. I don’t really have any other great ideas.

Do you have any pictures of your set up?

Try adjusting the snare legs, both width and arrangement. I always put my snare legs in an upside down triangle position and not too far apart, if you can visualize that. I’ve found that to be a pretty good set up.
