  • suggest a cymbal for heavy hitters

    Im using a repaired (quite a few times) alesis surge cymbal as a second crash and also crash ride too. Problem is it makes quite a noise when hit.was wondering what durable cymbals there is out there that will take a good smashing but the pad noise wont resonate out as much.go back to rubber i suppose??. I did manage to break a cy8 and a yamaha pcy before in the same position but they were quieter. The problem is we play alot more songs that require crashing then actual ride cymbal. The alesis holds up to the punishment but has this annoying clack sound going on.

    Interesting situation you're in!
    Maybe try to cover the alesis with a piece of ruber to make it quieter? - I don't know.

    Probably makes no sense to recommend Gen16's either... They crack without you doing much!

        do triggera do a crash? i thought it was just splash and china with them? i did think about rubber pad over top of alesis but defeats the object of it looking like a real cymbal in my mind.

          They are currently still working on one!

          So far I haven't heard complaints about their existing splash and china!
          Good stuff!

            The alesis im using is 12" so to lose an inch on the splash wouldnt be so bad. how durable are the cy-12's compared to cy8?

              Gotta go Triggera for your needs! Great cymbals at a great price.

              Looks like a real cymbal, plays without a noise. Nope. Gotta make a choice sometimes.

                    Rubber over steel and heavy.

                  what about a cymbal silencer over the alesis to kill the dull clack sound could cut it to size and shape etc.

                    A tricky task, for sure...


                    What you could try is 'Pure Gum Rubber Sheets'. They are not clear in appearance, but it was the same stuff Hart was using for their discontinued pads - seen on the ride-cymbal, like so:






                    Another thing you could try is clear vinyl dampener sheet on the bottom of the cymbal. It preserves the cymbals' playing-feel.

                    Jman did this to his 'Stealth' splash and china:




                    Taken from here:

                    ...and of course you may have to cover the whole cymbal to get the most silencing happening, I reckon.
