Hi hats. They seem to be a mystery to all drummers when they begin playing the drums. How do you get a better hi hat sound? Why do my hi hats sound bad? How can I improve how my hi hats sound? There are very few times that simply turning one knob on your drums will make a big difference. This is one of those times!!
One of the things I've repeatedly seen beginner drummers ignore is this. But I was the same way...for years I simply thought that knob under the hi hat was for decoration. And then one day, I started turning it...and a whole new world opened up.
For some of you, this seems like common sense. For some of us, it isn't. I've shown so many beginner drummers what this knob does for the hi hat sound, so I thought I would make this quick video for anyone wondering about what that "weird knob under my hihat cymbal does?"
Ultimately, it really doesn't matter what I think though. What do you think? Leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts, tips, and tricks for getting a better hi hat sound!!
I hope you found this quick hi hat lesson helpful!!
