    could you explain what you actually did.... make it an actual DIY for someone to try? I'd love to try it out myself.

    I've always wondered about it. Years ago I was trying to design something like that. Traditional hat stands are such a pain in the rear end sometimes (for travel) A set up like pictured here can break right down like a normal stand and carried in bag easily.

    all the best...

    Hi,SpazApproved.
    I do have Tama & Other brand Remote Cable-Hat.But,there are either too long(Cable)plus abit haeavy for me to transport for gig.Always wanted something very simple/cheap/small/light-weight cable-hat.Got the idea,how to do it.well,you know,my mind always full with "New Drum's idea" so,just put this Cable-hat project a side.Until,last week,one of my Drummer friend Mr.John O'Leary(Ireland) asking me that he wanted a cable-hat(prefer DIY and save cost).well,since i already have all those material ready.I just use my hand-phone to take a short video(step by step on how to make your own Cable-hat).I did share this idea & video to another friend from New York Mr.Brian Johnson.I thought,why not,i just share this idea here,so that some of you may want to try! i will post the step by step video here.

    Finally, attached the Cable Hi-hat on my new Cajon-drumkit.16" as kick, 12" as snare.Sound like a real drum,but play like "Cajon" style.

    I definitely need to try this at some point. I agree the cables of many remote hi-hats can be too long or a pain to transport...if it wasn't for that i'd always use one!

    Oh the mind wanders.....imagining making one of these for a remote pedal for an x-hat on the right side of the kit....heh heh.... now, am I capable of putting it together?

    Like everyone else is saying, thanks for putting these ideas up here for us. Very very cool stuff.
