The SoundOff Ride Cymbal Mute emulates true ride stick rebound while exposing the bell surface so that the drummer can practice various cymbal sticking techniques. Ordinarily loud and cutting, the bell is sufficiently muted that neighbors will likely hear only a faint ticking, if anything at all! In fact, the mutes provide an astounding 95% reduction in volume.
The HQ SoundOff Ride Mutes are constructed from an ultra-thin material that closely approximates the feel and touch of a stick hitting a cymbal. Immediately, drummers will notice a vast improvement over existing mutes and the makeshift use of towels and blankets. The HQ SoundOff Ride Mutes are a breeze to get up and ready. They install and remove in seconds without disturbing felt washers and wing nuts.
Most drummers have experienced the problem of practicing in apartments or late at night. Cymbals can be shrill and penetrating. The HQ SoundOff Ride Mutes will quiet their sound yet retain the feel of cymbals. As a result, they will appeal to a broader spectrum of players.
