    Hi, I’ve seen a qr clutch to aid quick tear down after gigs but can’t seem to find it any more. Not to be confused with a drop clutch. Anybody any ideas where I might find one of these jobbies please.
    Many thanks
    Clive

    I have seen them advertised but cannot remember who makes them, I have a vague feeling that Ludwig do one and found this on Google:

    here you go -best £20 I ever spent: had one for the last 4 years or so…so much better than fiddling about with the traditional threaded bits…

    A long time ago I had a Luddie clutch with a P Clip fitting into a notch in the body of the clutch. It was simple and quick to use, but drop that little P Clip on a dark stage and you’re in touble!
    If I was using one of those Gib QRs I would consider doing a little mod to attach one end of a cord to the removable ring and t’other to any convenient place on the HH.

    More as a curiosity than a useful suggestion – some years ago I picked one of these up on Ebay and it’s a cracking bit of kit.

    RARE “PER-DEL” HI HAT ‘SPEED’ CLUTCH.

    The drawback of that mechanism is that the lower part remains on the cymbal and prevent an easy fit of several cymbals in one bag or case.

    It’s never been a problem – my bag has separate compartments so there’s no abrasion. That fact that the lower part stays on is what makes it worth having.

    Glad to hear it. I have an old vulcanised fibre cymbal case which would definitely NOT accommodate a cymbal with it on! Just worth bearing in mind before buying!

    Not sure buying is an option Marcus – the packaging/documentation for mine is exactly as per the pictures, with hand-drawn diagrams and even the “#121” numbering. Not sure they ever achieved industrialized production, although it is very solidly built.

    That’s the impression I got! Certainly quicker, and if another similar item hits the market and people’s cymbal bags are suitable then all’s well

    Seconded. I’ve had one for years and it’s never let me down.

    …just ordered one of the Gilbraltar quick release clutches. I’ve also started using some quick release cymbal holders – every little helps!

    ….quick update – the quick release clutch turned up this morning so shout out to Rattle and Drum who have yet again provided good service. The mechanism isn’t as tight as I thought it might be but haven’t tried it on a kit yet so will give it a proper outing over the weekend and report back. As Prog has used one for years I’m sure there won’t be an issue – and it’s interesting how much I can’t wait to try out even such a small bit of new gear – little things please little minds I guess – but think how excited I’d be with a whole new kit!

    I remember being sceptical at first too. The clutch goes together and comes apart so easily and smoothly that it feels as though it’ll never hold but it does.

    Bought one last week.
    Used it Saturday night.
    Love it.

    My last clutch (DW) took a lot of patience to thread.

    I must’ve put mine on and taken it off hundreds and hundreds of times but its simplicity still puts a smile on my face.
