Spring Seat (US.PAT.NO.8604325)
By tilting the bottom hi-hat cymbal, you can get a crisper and clearer hi-hat sound with your foot.
Quick-Set Hi-Hat Clutch (PAT.PENDING)
With just one touch, the Quick-Set Clutch can be attached or removed - simply push the button on the side of the clutch. The clutch also allows the top hi-hat cymbal to float more freely, maximizing the natural resonance of the cymbals.
Footboard Angle Adjustment
Like Iron Cobra pedals, footboard angles on Iron Cobra hi-hats can be adjusted. You can perfectly match the angle between the hi-hat footboard and the slave-side footboard of your double pedal.
Non-Loosening Tension Rod (US. PAT.NO.6075192)
Specially shaped plastic and metal nuts fit together perfectly to keep the cymbal rod from loosening while playing.
Spare-The-Rods Tension Rod Protector
No more tension rods getting bent out of shape during transport! With Spare-The-Rod, you can save your tension rod the rigors of the road by packing it in the specially designed upper section pipe. It's a small, but very significant TAMA hardware innovation.
1.Insert the tension rod into the upper tube.
2.Hold the tension rod in place with the hi-hat clutch.
3.Done. The upper tube covers the tension rod.
Dual Legs (US. PAT.NO.5945616)
Our two-leg design is not only easier to set up in limited spaces, it's actually more secure than the standard three-leg design. The secret is in the small stabilizer under the footboard which effectively shifts the balance and strength of the stand toward the player. Since there's no steel plate under the footboard, Iron Cobra hi-hats are foldable for quick set-up, fast tear down, and easy portability.
Not only do Tilt equipped stands offer more flexible set-ups, they also offer more expressive hi-hat work because you can tilt the hi-hat cymbal. Iron Cobra hi-hat stands can be tilted quickly and easily by loosening just one T-Bolt.
6-Way Tension Adjustment
Six different levels of tension can be achieved quickly by using the six easily visible settings.
Oiles® Bearing Hinge (US. PAT.NO.6100460)
Offering even less friction than standard ball bearings, Oiles® bearings also eliminate side-to-side motion and provide superior durability (which is why they're used in the aerospace industry). (Oiles® bearings is a registered trademark of the Oiles Co., Ltd.)
Duo-spike (US. PAT.NO.6031170)
It's called a stand because it's not supposed to "walk"-and our Duo-Spike makes sure your Iron Cobra hi-hat stands in one place. You can easily switch from rubber to metal by using a standard drum key.
Since the foot pedal can be rotated around the dual leg base, the Swivel Foot feature greatly expands floor space and set-up flexibility.
Hinge Guard Block
The construction of the Bearing Hinge on the footplate has changed from a one-piece assembly to two pieces. This design holds the bearing more evenly - minimizing stress and maximizing smoothness, while also adding to the pedal's sense of power.
Additional Short Rod Included
The new Iron Cobra hi-hat stands now come with both long and short cymbal rods, allowing drummers a choice based on their unique setup needs.
