  • Tip: Aquarian Cymbal Springs

    I am using a CY-5 as a splash/china cymbal, but I was never happy with the way the thing was mounted. It's very front-heavy, it doesn't really swing, so I ended up having to clamp it down way tight, which makes it feel like hitting a plastic bucket lid. But as I was rummaging through my spare parts, I found this old Aquarian Cymbal Spring that I had lying around. Installed it on a whim, and boy, it's perfect for this kind of situation. This red one is medium tension, and it supplies just the right kind of "give" with no (re)triggering issues at all. For like 10-15 bucks, highly recommended.

    I bought just one a while back to evaluate. I used it for my right DIY Pintech 16" crash and over time I've come to appreciate how it works. I will probably replace my felt ones at some point. Pintech sells them bundled with their ecymbals.

        You could also balance out a cymbal by sticking on piece of (heavy) bitumen, cut from a sheet you can get at a car accessory parts dealer.

          Is that sheets you use in high end audio to apply sound dampening to the inside of car doors etc?

            Yeah, I been looking at something I could use as a counterweight but I haven't been able to find something suitable. This sounds interesting. I'm only seeing it in huge quantities online, but I can check Pep Boys tomorrow.
