Gibraltar Ultra Adjust: A New Twist On Hi-Hat Stands

By Andy Doerschuk Published January 28, 2011

I’ve said it before and … what do you know? … I’m going to say it again: Some of the coolest ideas in the drum market always reside in innovative hardware designs. You know: add a wing nut, remove a wing nut, and bingo! – you have a whole new ball game. And now Gibraltar has devised an interesting twist in hi-hat design – the Ultra Adjust Hi-Hat stand. This little charmer gives players the best of both worlds by providing comfy positioning for the leg base and independent positioning for hi-hats. Gibraltar’s patented Ultra Adjust system contains two gearless positioning points that allow the drummer to dial in an independent positioning for the hats, all within 8” of displacement for the upper stand section of the hi-hat. Trust us – you’ll feel as if you’re cruising down Highway 1 in mid-July with the top down as soon as you start splashing these platters.

  • I Have the 2010 version. I love it.

  • where can i buy this

  • If you search for it you will find a bunch of retail sites that sell the stand. Here’s one: http://www.amazon.com/Gibraltar-Ultra-Adjust-Hi-Hat-Movable/dp/B000RLF5X4

  • Yeah, I found it on Cymbal Fusion for around $166. I bet you can get your local music store to order it, too. I like to support my locals.

  • I bought one of these. Within 2 years the cable that connects the lower post to the upper post broke. I contacted a local dealer to order a replacement cable. They could not find the part, so I contacted Gibraltar via their site and they said: “Since this cable is not replaceable, we do not have a cable that will work with this stand. I am sorry that I am unable to help you.”

    This complete lack of customer support renders this expensive, “heavy duty” stand completely useless.

    I will NEVER buy another product from this company again.

  • Hi alang,
    After your post below, I contacted the head of Gibraltar to see if he could resolve your problem. Send your name and email to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), and I will have them contact you directly. I think they can solve your problem.
