  • Yamaha PCY stopper

    I have a Yamaha PCY-135 without a stopper. I can't find the stoppers for sale locally in Taiwan and it's not worth shipping one here. Does anybody have a genius cheap and nasty DIY solution to keep the cymbal from spinning? I searched the forum but the only solutions I found were people using machinery I don't have access to to build them.

    There's a fix using a rubber band in that thread. You can pass the band up through the hole in the cymbal and then insert something horizontally through it to keep it in place.

          Thanks. That looks simple and effective. I did try a similar thing with string but it didn't keep the tension enough to bring it back. The elastic should be more effective.

            Thanks. That also looks simple and effective. I did see this before and was going to do it and then I totally forgot about it.

              Nice. Hualien is a beautiful place. I'm in New Taipei City.
