How open should hi hats be?

The Hi-Hat foot should only be raised a little, about an inch, when opened. The Hi-Hat should be struck with the shoulder of the stick (where the stick starts to taper towards the bead) on the edge of the top cymbal. This will create the satisfying and “meaty” sound that most drummers enjoy so much.

Which is the lowest frequency of a hi hat?

The fundamental frequency of a hi-hat is actually quite low. When I played a natural and raw hi-hat sound on my DAW and watched the spectrum analyzer, I saw that the lowest frequencies of a typical closed hi-hat hit are in the 200-500 Hz range. However, in most songs, the hi-hat is best used in the 5k-20k range, or even the 10k-20k.

What do hi-hats do to a music mix?

Hi-hats tend to add high-frequency texture and energy to a track. So over-compressed hi-hats can sound surprisingly lifeless, and actually start to suck the energy out of a track!
