Foot Hat?

Smile Foot Hat?

I recently created a thread looking for half-open hat samples. Now, I'm looking for what I believe are called "Foot Hat" samples. I'm not a drummer . . . so I don't know the correct terminology. This is the sound made when a drummer stomps on the pedal to open and close the hat. There are no sticks involved. I'm trying to build a Zildjian 15" hat kit to recreate an authentic Ringo-ish sound. He rarely tick tick ticked. He mostly washed over the hats or stomped the pedal.

What is the correct term for this technique/sound?

Where can I find such samples?

Thank you!!

I usually hear it called "splashing". "High-hat splashes".

I don't think "foot hat" is a real term. The cymbal stand which has two cymbals that are pressed together with a foot is called a "high-hat" or "hi-hat" - originally to distinguish it from a "low boy" which was popular in the first half of the 20th century. High-hats are more popular now, for one thing you can reach them with your sticks, but low boy stands are still made.
