Highat Tension
« on: December 07, 2003, 07:13 PM »
Hi all. Ok. So I play on a 14" pair of paiste highats on a Rogers Hihat stand. My friend plays oon 14" sabians on a maypex stand, and his pedal has alot less tension on it...like his highat comes up slower than mine. Is there anyway I can adjust the tension on my highat stand?

Which Rogers stand do you have?  I owned a Rogers kit in the early 70s and the hi hat stand did not have adjustable tension.  
No one will believe it's the "Blues" if you wear a suit, 'less you happen to be an old person, and you slept in it last night!

I have a Tama stand that has adjustable tension, so you might need a new stand. I can adjust mine so that it's so lax that the weight of the cymbal actually closes the gap, or with alot of resistance where it really snaps open and stays open.

There was a rogers kit that has been sitting in the store forever, today its gone.  I talked to the drum guru there and to the best of his knowledge the stand is not adjustable for tension.  Sorry.

Yes but it's strange to see that it's only a 5 positions adjustable tension , i'll appreciate in addition of this 5 adjustments a more precise adjustable tension  ( like we have with the Tama bass drum pedal ) :P

if you wanted a permanent adjustment you could cut the spirng shoter.  or just buy a new spring.
