hi-hat stand rod


New member
ok ok...i don't know if anyone agrees but due to me being short my hi-hat stand rod has alot of left over poking out of my stand and personally i think it looks ugly!

what's the best way to get the rod to the height i want it? can i/do i have to buy rods to a custom length? or can i saw it? but then wont that look shit with a ruff edge..

ideas?? thanks :)

I understand how you feel. I place my hihats about 2 inches above the minimum, I'll probably buy a rod and saw it so that I can put another cymbal directly over the hihats.
