Drop Clutch

A device used on some hi-hat stands to release/drop the upper hi-hat cymbal so that it sits against the lower hi-hat cymbal, even when the hi-hat pedal is not depressed by the drummer’s foot. Drop clutches may be activated with a drum stick or using a locking hi-hat pedal. The most common use for a drop clutch is to provide a “closed” hi-hat sound when using a double bass drum pedal.
