You don’t need to buy a whole new cymbal to get that sizzle sound.
Cymbal sizzle chains easily attach to your cymbal (usually with the cymbal felt) and give a nice sizzle sound. Different sized beads are available – smaller beads give a more subtle sound, and larger ones will give a more pronounced sizzle. Great with sticks, or if you’re struggling to get cymbal sustain when playing brushes at low volume. Cymbal sizzle chains are a great (and cheap) way to get a completely different cymbal sound. Considering drilling rivets into your cymbal? Test out how it will sound first with a chain… You probably won’t need to install the rivets at all. You’ll save damaging your cymbal, and you’ll keep its resale value!
Tip: Cut the chain to size so it doesn’t hang off of the edge of the cymbal. If it hangs too far off the edge, you’ll loose a lot of cymbal sustain.
