THAT is what that is for?!?!?!?Just in case you haven't done so already, angle the bottom hi hat cymbal a bit with the screw below its plate
Learn something new every day...(For me it's like every three days or so).
I have Mastersound i Zildjian, with the wrinkled bottom edge.
Also want to know the best way to lessen the sustain on these without giving away on sound. (I like how they sound but they last forever)
EDIT: I do know how the pedal works so I am not sure I'm explaining it right.
