The DW 6000 Series of Hardware has proved extremely popular thanks to its sleek, vintage flush base aesthetic and its lightweight design. A perfect blend of portability and stability the 6000 hardware is a great choice for drummers on the go.

Flush Base Design

The most striking feature of this 6000 hi-hat stand is its flush base design. The low-profile, lightweight aluminium base of this stand makes it the ideal choice for small space setups, vintage kits or gigging drummers who want to reduce the weight of their hardware bag.

Hinged Memory Locks

To aid quick and easy setup, DW have included hinged memory locks to their 6000 hi-hat stand. The memory locks are included at tube joints to provide a consistent, precise height setting every time. Once you’ve found your most comfortable height position you don’t need to think about finding it again because the memory locks remember it for you, making your life much easier when it comes to setting up.

Offset Direct Pull Action

The pedal on the DW 6500 hi-hat stand has been designed to offer a direct pedal-to-hat response for an instant transfer of movement from your foot to your cymbals. It features a dual chain for a robust build and a spring tension adjuster which allows easy adjustability to set the pedal to the exact feel that you desire.

Spring Tension Adjuster

The spring tension adjuster of this DW hi-hat stand provides the option to easily and precisely adjust the tension of the hi-hat pedal. This allows you to offset the weight of the top hi-hat cymbal to create a truly customised feel. Set the tension feel of your pedal to your exact specifications for a comfortable playing feel.

Delta Ball Bearing Hinge

The pedal of this hi-hat stand features a state of the art Delta ball bearing hinge, made from lightweight aluminium. This design incorporates ball bearings at both sides of the hinge to offer a quick action and smooth footboard movement with each stroke you make.

Locking Clutch

The DW 6500 comes with a SM379 locking hi-hat clutch as standard. The clutch allows you to easily dial in the level of open wash or closed tightness you need, to ensure you achieve the precise sound you want no matter the musical situation. Then, lock in your setting to ensure it doesn’t come loose as you play, for a consistent hi-hat sound from start to finish.
