Looks good, built strong, doesn't cost too much and isn't in any way dramatic sounding.
It also really feels like it's build sturdy.
Since this is not meant to be hit on directly, it promises a long life span.
It's meant for cymbals and hi-hat hats. The cymbals are sizzling subtle at the end, and the tambourine effect is evenly subtle with normal hihat playing.
This also dampens the cymbal decay. Which opens up other possibilities. Like suddenly being able to play a China crash like a loud trash ride.
That's what makes this more versatile than the little chains, that just do the sizzling part, however those can be used on the snare are well and this... not really.
The effects from this thing will be enhanced with dedicated mixing, but I think it's true purpose is less effective for live play but more for recordings.
It will also be beter audible with softer sticks, like hot rods.
Can't go wrong for the money.
But if you're like me, who tries avoid unnecessary wear of the cymbal lettering, you'll notice you'll only put this on cymbals big enough for it not to have that issue.
Because this will scrape the letters on your cymbals right off with frequent use.
For people like me, that means I can't use it on any cymbal I want.
