Not what I expected...

Comments about PROMARK Cymbal Rattler:

This seemed like a really cool idea but I tried it on an old heavy 20" Zildjian and it sounded nothing like a "sizzle". The rattler more or less dampened the cymbal and produced a weird buzz. I tried this with the wing nut on and with it off with the same effect. I then gave it a shot on a 20" A Custom ride with the same effect. This may sound good on certain cymbals but I've had a hard time getting a pleasing sound with it. I'm not giving up yet because it's such a cool idea and easy to use on different cymbals during a set but I've just got to figure out how to make it "SIZZLE". It seems to work better with a harder strike than a light stroke is all I can say right now.

For a cheap, easy sizzle

By Michael Gesler

from Michigan

Comments about PROMARK Cymbal Rattler:

Adding a ball chain to your cymbal to make it sizzle takes a little forethought. I have this on my 18" medium crash and it works great. I probably would not use it on anything smaller. It also adds a nice tone to my 20" ride without an over powering sizzle; just that nice jazz effect. I had to enlarge the hole as it did not fit on my stands, but that wasn't a big issue. If you can get ball chain at your local hardware store, do so. If you can't, this is worth the price.

THIS IS AMAZING!

Comments about PROMARK Cymbal Rattler:

I bought one of these for my church. we play like alternative rock music, instead if typical worship. I noticed the drummer for jack johnson used one so i purchased one at a local music store. I love it. It brings an edge to your ride, or whatever you want to put it on. I had one on my ride, and sometimes on my china. if you have 10 bucks buy this now! The only downer is mine broke because my ride is at an angle and i accidentally hit the rattler to many times. if you can resist hitting it, your good.

Right Idea, Wrong Design

By Drummer-H.XZT

from Florida

Comments about PROMARK Cymbal Rattler:

The problem with this gadget is its design. The chain beads are too big. All that is necessary (and most effective) is a standard size bead like those used for a soldier's dog tag. This product is basically worthless. It was definitely not designed by a drummer.

          Doesent really work

          By Greg Chandler

          from Atlanta, Georgia

          Comments about PROMARK Cymbal Rattler:

          I Bought this at a music store in Atlanta, looking for an alternative instead of buying cymbal with rivets. Brought it home, started playing, and it doesent work at all. I Own a Zildjian A medium ride, and it was not effective. The cymbal ring overpowered the rattle.
