Top Tips For Controlling Cymbal Volume
This week we are bringing you some top tips for controlling cymbal volume.
Have you ever been practicing or on stage and your cymbals are just too loud?
In this weeks blog we are going to discuss some top tips for controlling cymbal volume.
One: Use your hands – Using your hands to choke cymbals is a great way to reduce prolonged notes. The best way to control sound is you.
Two: Use dampening and muting products – Sometimes you want to take some of the harshness out of your cymbals but don’t want to lose the overall sound. Moongels or insulating tape can be a great help to reduce volume.
Three: Use Low volume cymbals – Something that is relatively new to the market are low volume cymbals. These are cymbals that has hundreds of small holes drilled into them to remove a lot of the volume. These can be great for day to day practice or you can even buy triggers for a live setting.
Four: Use a drum booth or cage – Although this is the most expensive of our tips, drum booths or cages are the best way to go if you are looking for the highest amount of volume control. These booths or cages are most commonly used in live settings such as churches or even drum clinics.
