Best product for cross stick rim clicks!

The RimRiser basically raises the drum rim so you can get better quality of sound in rim clicks while also giving more room for your hand. It's very comfortable and easy to install.

Easy to add and keeps the knuckles off the head, however the pitch is about 1 step higher than my normal rim so I do not prefer the sound. It is brighter and slightly thinner so maybe good if you need to cut through the mix but I probably won't be using it live.

    Comments about The RimRiser Cross Stick Performance Enhancer:

    I have huge hands, so the standard rim doesn't allow for clean rim clicks with my size 14 pinky fingers, and size 16 index fingers. This solved that.

            This is a follow up to my original review. I originally bought this product for my 6.5"-deep DW snare, but the rods that were supplied were too short and had a different thread pattern than the Tru Pitch rods on the drum. I contacted James at Rim Riser and he got the correct rods to me. Great product and even better customer service!

                I bought this for my 14x6.5" Collectors Series snare. Unfortunately, the tension rod supplied was not long enough. I was able to install it on my 5.5" snare thought. It really does improve cross stick performance and sound.

                  Comments about The RimRiser Cross Stick Performance Enhancer:

                  I play in 2 bands that require a lot of cross stick rim playing. This product makes it easier to achive a consistent stroke, sound, and with more physical comfort. Comfort was never an issue until I sustained a shoulder injury. This product relieves much of that pain. I originally had been searching for the Russ Miller Groove Wedge. This product fills the need as the Groove Wedge has been discontinued. Price is more reasonable, too.

                                Saw it Featured at The NAMM Show last Year . My issue was my mid range disappeared completely when going from snare to cross stick interludes. Now my volume is consistent and CLEAR I really love my rimriser and I'm buying one for every snare i own. Update!! They now make a Trigger whaaaatttt! Very cool!!!

                                  I work alot of Vegas Shows. Love The Sound options the rimriser offers me. Moving my drumstick can either get me a fat thick cross stick or a light tap for softer tunes. Very affordable and a blast to experiment with I. Love it!
