After setting a new standard with the Lever Glide hi-hat, TAMA raised the bar with the Iron Cobra hi-hat. Designed to be the perfect counterpart to Iron Cobra bass pedals, Iron Cobra hi-hats offer incomparable sensitivity, lightning fast action, player friendly adjustments, and an absolutely noiseless design.
The idea of replacing the traditional pull mechanism with a lever design was a genuinely revolutionary concept. The Tama Iron Cobra Hi-Hat Stand Lever Glide uses roller bearings at the lever fulcrum for even smoother footboard action while a super-strong Kevlar strap connects the footboard and pull rod for even, noise-free action.
Footboard Angle Adjustment
Like Iron Cobra pedals, footboard angles on Iron Cobra hi-hats can be adjusted. You can perfectly match the angle between the hi-hat footboard and the slave-side footboard of your double pedal.
Duo-spike (US PAT.NO.6031170)
It's called a stand because it's not supposed to "walk"-and our Duo-Spike makes sure your Iron Cobra hi-hat stands in one place. You can easily switch from rubber to metal by using a standard drum key.
Not only do Tilt equipped stands offer more flexible set-ups, they also offer more expressive hi-hat work because you can tilt the hi-hat cymbal. Iron Cobra hi-hat stands can be tilted quickly and easily by loosening just one T-Bolt.
Oiles Bearing Hinge
Offering even less friction than standard ball bearings, Oiles bearings also eliminate side-to-side motion and provide superior durability (which is why they're used in the aerospace industry).
Non-Loosening Tension Rod (US PAT.NO.6075192)
Specially shaped plastic and metal nuts fit together perfectly to keep the cymbal rod from loosening while playing.
Spare-The-Rod-Tension Rod Protector
No more tension rods getting bent out of shape during transport! With Spare-The-Rod, you can save your tension rod the rigors of the road by packing it in the specially designed upper section pipe. It's a small, but very significant TAMA hardware innovation.
1.Insert the tension rod into the upper tube.
2.Hold the tension rod in place with the hi-hat clutch.
3.Done. The upper tube covers the tension rod.
Dual Legs (US PAT.NO.5945616)
Our two-leg design is not only easier to set up in limited spaces, it's actually more secure than the standard three-leg design. The secret is in the small stabilizer under the footboard which effectively shifts the balance and strength of the stand toward the player. Since there's no steel plate under the footboard, Iron Cobra hi-hats are foldable for quick set-up, fast tear down, and easy portability.
5-Way Tension Adjustment
Five different levels of tension can be achieved quickly by using the five easily visible settings.
