Identifying the Hi-Hat
Instruments have names, each name identifies the instrument, then when played the name identifies the sound. The Hi-Hat is part of the drum kit in the percussion group. It has two cymbals mounted on a stand and has a pedal used to hold or clash the cymbals. It makes a direct sound similar to the sound of two tea tops clashed together. The hi-hat is used in many different genres of music, it is identified by open or closed hi-hats, which is when the two cymbals are together or apart. You also have the pedal hi-hat, which is when the pedal is used to strike the two cymbals in regards to playing and reading music.
