maybe a bit overpriced but ...

it it much better solution than using the good old bath chain. But again it all comes down to cymbal vs chain weight. If your cymbal is too light , for example 1600 - 1800 g , this chain could kill its sustain (dampen it ) to much , but again you probably wouldn't use a sizzle on that thin cymbal or you could try bath chain that is usualy lighter.
I bought it to change a sound on my rather pingy jazz ride that was missing a littles bit of that dirty and nice sustain you get from thinner cymbals. It probably is not a substitute for rivets , which are ligher and sit near the edge of the cymbal, whereas this chain lies along the whole cymbal, so rivets would again give you a different sound, but this way you don't have to drill your cymbal and possibly regret after.

Cool and cheap way to enhance your cymbal sound
Neptunian 28.08.2018
I use this Cymbal Bacon with my ride cymbals, and have often found that its effect - namely, shortening the decay time while increasing the sizzliness - is exactly what is needed for studio work. It is also much cheaper and more conveniently mounted and dismounted than rivets, to say nothing of keeping the cymbal intact. Keep in mind that you may have to change your cymbal mounting angle if this turns out to drop exactly over the spot where you typically hit your cymbal.

Great quality and very nice thing to have but only can be applied in quiet music or when practicing alone . In other settings in does not come to surface . All in all,I am very happy with this sweet little thing :)

Does what it should!

I've always been a fan of riveted cymbals, so it's nice to have the option to add a sizzle to any other cymbal too. I've had a couple of the Pro Mark sizzlers for a few years, but never understood why they were so clunky and how the top section was intended to work with the felt! These Meinl equivalents are much more tidy though, and work a treat.

My only negative thing with them is that they're a bit over priced for what they are - you could make a DIY equivalent with a plug chain and a keyring for a few pennies, but out of laziness I just treated myself to the real deal.

Overall, yes, because they're branded, they're a little overpriced, but they work a treat, so why not?!
