I'm looking for a way to mount a small splash over a 2nd hi hat like the way Neil Peart has done on his kits. I'm going to get a mounting clamp for the hi hat but what attachment will work to mount the splash? I'm not really able to find a piece of hardware that will mount on the hi hat rod.

Any thoughts?

Just use a highat clutch on the same rod that the hats are on. Down side is some metal on metal.

I put an extension on my high hat rod (made from thread stock and extension nut) to gain height. Then put a simple tilter on the rod with cymbal. I use a 14" crash with no problems with high hat response.

I stack my toy (First Act) 10" splash upside down directly on top of the bell
of my upside down 14" Sabian China cymbal (see pic)...

I'm guilty of metal contact between the two cymbals, but I get a unique
trashy crash sound when I strike my China and Splash together at once.
My Splash can hold its own when I strike it during live shows and in the studio.
My guess is that my Splash is "borrowing" resonance energy from my China
to project itself louder during a live show. Whatever it is, I'm happy with it.
I wouldn't trade this sound for anything... until I get a better custom sound, lol.

In your case, you can use extensions or stackers, or try some modifications
as other members have described.
If you have spare hardware parts in your stash, some experimenting is cool
as long as you achieve what you're looking for and its function holds up well.
