Remote Hi Hat
This is a development of the Hihat for a specific range of applications. In this case, the connection between the foot pedal and the cymbals is made through a sheathed flexible steel cable that allows the upper unit to be placed with great flexibility anywhere within 1.5-2 metres of the pedal. The upper part of the Remote hat is similar to the traditional hihat in that it uses a moving rod; it is the connection between the pedal and the rod that is made flexible.
The drummer performs the same foot and hand movements but the hat cymbals do not require to be placed directly above the pedal.
