You get what you pay for.

Would only recommend this for a 2nd hi-hat, instead of using to move your primary to an alternate position. Response is a little sluggish, took some getting used to (this might well be a feature of cable hats in general admittedly).

Unfortunately mine broke after about 2 months of owning, I don't consider myself especially heavy footed. Internal connector between cable and footplate snapped and the unit ceased working - what's more the design and location of issue made it impossible to self-repair without significant deconstruction - not a minor fault.

Thomann shipped a replacement immediately, but the issue was upsetting to experience on a near brand-new piece of kit. See how the replacement holds up.
