Pearl have been making musical equipment in Japan since 1946. In 1950 founder Katsumi Yanagisawa refocused the company's efforts towards drums before adding Latin percussion, Timpani and marching drums a few years later.
Since then Pearl have gone from strength to strength. A favourite with professional players all over the world including Dennis Chambers, Ian Paice and Joey Jordison to name a few, Pearl have created a reputation as solid as their hardware.
Here's what Pearl say about the HCL-205DQR Rapid Lock H-Hat Drop Clutch:
The Pearl HCL-205DQR Rapid Lock Hi-Hat Drop Clutch is a high-quality drop-clutch from Pearl, featuring durable felt washers and a rapid lock/release fastener for quick and easy cymbal changing. The HCL-205DQR clutch features a drop-style design, meaning the top hi-hat can be opened and closed without using the foot pedal, especially useful for dual bass drum and pedal setups.
The spring-loaded dual fastening system allows you to disengage the rapid lock from the main clutch with ease, resulting in smooth, easy breakdown and setup of the top hi-hat. The felt washers minimise interference with the cymbals themselves, ensuring you get the same great sound without the inconvenience of losing your hi-hats. Ideal for players who demand reliable and consistent hi-hat performance throughout their sessions, the Pearl HCL-205QR Rapid Lock Hi-Hat Clutch is the perfect upgrade from any default hi-hat clutch.
