The HS-1200 hi-hat is ideal for drummers that prefer a three-legged stand, but still use a double pedal or play left foot clave patterns. The front two legs are single braced, allowing more room for placement of additional pedals. The third leg is double braced for more stability, and it has a retractable spike to keep it where you put it. The HS-1200 ships with a short pull rod to accommodate open-hand technique, and a longer rod for drummers that like their cymbals set up higher. The HS-1200 includes the new design locking clutch that will not come loose, even if you play your top cymbal very loose.
