Strike Hi Hat

Another seemingly silly question but what does the botton cymbal do? Ive taken mine off and the hi hat sounds and responses seem totally unaffected.

I think it痴 just there for aesthetics. I知 thinking of removing my bottom today. I知 hoping it helps my hi-hat function better.
Had to sell a car for my Alesis Strike but I知 ok with it.

There is more to it than aesthetics. There are 3 switches spaced around the rim and a jack that connects to the control module. Ive measured for continuity across the jack and its open circuit until all 3 switches are pressed then its closed circuit.

Oh wow that痴 good to know. So now I guess I need to figure out how to adjust some settings on it because it just dose not work so good. Thanks for the info.

Going to have a go at this. Not sure about the rubber hose bit though.

Looks like the hose is kind of like gust a spacer. I知 sure the same concept can be done with different materials instead of a hose. I do like the idea behind it.
