Which sound do you use to make a closed hi-hat?
In rock music, the hi – hats are commonly struck every beat, or on beats 1 and 3, while the cymbals are held together. The drummer can control the sound by foot pressure. Use.

What DB should hi hats be?
If you absolutely must have a volume level for your hi hats, I would suggest -20 db. But this can vary depending on the artistic effect you’re going for as well as how high the average peak volume of your song is going to be.
Where do you put the hi hat on a double bass?
Standard placement of a double bass drum pedal next to the hit hat stand. Now, go ahead place your slave pedal to the right of your hi hat pedal so that you can easily switch your left foot between the two pedals.
How do you set up a double bass drum set?
Method 1: Mount two toms on each bass drum using your hardware. Method 2: Mount one tom on each bass drum and mount up to two additional toms on a stand in between the bass drums. Method 3: Mount as many toms as you want on a rack placed in front of the kit. Attach your other desired cymbals to their stands.
Why do my hi hats sound bad?
If you push too hard on your hi – hat foot pedal, you will choke the cymbals, and this is a sure way to make even the best cymbals sound average. If there is too much separation between the two, you only get the high-pitched and somewhat piercing sound of the top cymbal.
Why are hi hats called hi hats?
Hi – hats were so called because they were “high” compared to the then standard low-boy. The opening and closing resembled someone lifting their top hat.
Why is the hi hat on the left?
Are you right or left handed? Typically, right handed drummers use their right hand on the hi hats, left handed their left. Your hi hat hand is usually going to be doing more work, so in a way it makes more sense to have your dominant hand be your lead hand.
Are bigger hi-hats louder?
Bigger hats in general will be lower pitched, louder and have more wash/sustain. Smaller hats will be the opposite.
Should you pan hi-hats?
By panning hi – hats to the sides, everything that’s left in the center will get more attention, simultaneously making the mix feel wider and more rhythmic. For hip-hop and electronic tracks, I like to pan hats 30–50% away from the center.
Should you compress hi-hats?
We compress hi – hats often by 2dB to 6dB, with a ratio between 3:1 to 6:1. For a clean and tight sound, do not apply any reverb on the hi – hats. For a more natural sound, add a little drum reverb on the hi – hats. For a spacious sound, add reverb of the overall space.
