How do you connect a double bass pedal to a hi hat?
The traditional setup is to attach the primary pedal to the bass drum as you would a single pedal and to place the second, slave pedal just to the right of the hi hat stand’s pedal board. There are other uses for these pedals to play other percussion instruments, with similar set up methods.
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 does a double bass pedal do?
A double bass drum pedal operates much the same way only with a second footplate controlling a second beater on the same drum. Most commonly this is attached by a shaft to a remote beater mechanism alongside the primary pedal mechanism.
Why does my hi hat 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.
How loud should my hi hats be?
The thing you want to create is a “nice even sound” as when your song gets mastered the low and top end will become much louder and much more defined than before. If you absolutely must have a volume level for your hi hats, I would suggest -20 db.
