      Comments about Meinl Ching Ring Jingle Effect for Cymbals:

      This is interesting. I first saw this with my drum teacher at a lesson as he had it on these Gen Z electronic hihats that we use with no electronics as they are used for the practice kit in a small studio room where I am taking a lesson. The sound of this ching-ring was nice enough and the application at hand caught my attention.
      I have three other rings at home and as usual they are the clamp type. I use a drop clutch on my hihat so one of my older ching-rings as part of the ring cut away to not mess with my drop clutch handle right? The other ring I don't use because it gets in the way of the drop clutch. My 3rd ching-ring is a remake of the original ralph kester type, problem is though it does not have a clamp as you need to get your own or lace it with the hihat top cymbal. This works fine but again , I use a drop clutch and it is a problem. I could loose the drop clutch and just get used to reaching up and turning my hihat to drop it but I don't want to.
      With this little ring here though has two things that caught my eye. Application being it sort of bypasses the need to clamp it in the hihat rod! And second, it has a sound that is not so overbearing with many ching-rings. It adds a sound but not so strong you would only want to use it on one number or solo time. If you do want to remove it you just grab it and set it down. I use this on 15" hihats. I noticed this doesn't make as much sound with it as the 14" hats do. When my hihat is closed and I am striking it with my stick for some quarter notes or eights notes, it also has a nice response. More subtle and effective. I was also concerned about this creating scratches or marks on my hihat top hat right? But this has a nice coating on it and the round rivets it seems to touch down on are nice and round and smooth. I don't see this thing hurting my cymbal at all really. You can also use this thing on crash cymbals and it will tape nice and easy to your bass drum beater head to if this is where you want it.

          I love this thing. Put it on a set of Meinl Dark or Extra Dry hats and you get this amazing sloshy, but responsive and full hiss, looks cool too. I thought it would be too "tamborine-y" but offers more of a riveted sound. Sturdy, too. I don't avoid hitting it. If i want a more pronounced jingle, I hit it directly. If you're into minimalist chop work, this thing provides a lot of versatility just by setting it on the hats. Just buy it, ya bum. Make something of yourself.

            Exactly what I needed to breathe life into some old vintage hats. You can play the hats with the barest bit of jingle or tap the metal ring, which really brings out a jingle. Never overpowering, just enough. Records well. It actually improved the sound of these very old brass hats I had so much they will stay on! Thanks, Musician's Friend!

                  Comments about Meinl Ching Ring Jingle Effect for Cymbals:

                  I use this on a 16" thin crash and now the cymbal is a true producer of multiple sounds.
                  I can crash it, tap it gently, or play it like a ride cymbal, and it only requires gentle touch to produce a lot of sound.
                  Needless to say, your cymbal must be mounted flat on it's stand.

                    This is a fine piece of equipment. You can put it on the hi-hat and the ride and even the crash cymbal. It complements beautifully the other pieces of the drumset and i am really happy with it.

                      used on my amplified trio gig, and the chick+jingle sounded really strong and good. To me. I didn't have anyone out in the audience that I have yet to ask what it sounds like from 20ft. This weekend, I did a parlor gig. Snare + hat + brushes. Accompanying an acoustic baby grand piano and trumpet. It was over-emphasizing the chick, so I took it off the hat. Right tool for the right job...that's how you should work.
