New for 2012, the Remote Speedy Hat ™ version 2.0 by Legacy Percussion Gear is even better than the original! This patent pending remote hi hat invented by Bill Bachman is the first remote hi hat to truly work without the lag and drag associated with remote hi hats, in fact, all the reviews (Modern Drummer, DRUM! Magazine, etc.) find it to be as fast or faster than a traditional straight hi hat stand. The secret to the speedy action is the patent pending design which virtually eliminates friction and lets the hi hat cymbals both react and recoil instantly, just like a hi hat should.
The Remote Speedy Hat TM is designed to be used as your primary hi hat as it allows the hi hat cymbals to be moved toward the center of the kit, eliminating the need for the right hand to cross over and trap the left hand/stick underneath. Bottom line: It's faster than a straight stand, makes everything you play now easier, opens up a million new possibilities, packs up lighter than a straight stand, and is virtually indestructible!
