Zildjian rivet holes sound affect...
 
Help2
Novice question...

I just bought a 70's thin stamp 20" ride off of CL. The pic didn't reveal the rivet holes, then when I went to pick it up I noticed it had them. I bought it anyway ($60). I am not a jazz drummer, therefore I do not plan on putting rivets in. SO my question is, how do the rivet holes affect the cymbal sound, as opposed to a cymbal without holes? Or am I over thinking the whole hole thing?

Thanks in advance

The thing with cymbals (good ones anyways) is that they are like a synthesizer that can make an infinite variety of tones. So every time you hit it, it's different.

Because of that it's near impossible to hear any difference after you remove the small amount of metal that holes make. You couldn't even record an A/B test because there'd be no "control" in the experiment since a cymbal sounds different every time you hit it.

I've taken a lot more metal out of cymbals than that when I've repaired some big cracks, and even then there was no difference that I noticed.

So it's more cosmetic and it sounds like you got a good deal. Since the holes are there you could even get some rivets or brass tacks and place them in the holes for recording if you want a temporary sizzle.

Hey, by the time I'm 90, the best I'll be able to hope for is a temporary sizzle. :(

If you heard the before and after, then I think you'd agree that you wouldn't be able hear any difference.

You should put some rivits in...I don'y play Jazz either, but I love my sizzle for alot of the 60's rock too! You should give it a try and see if you like it.

I agree! I love sizzle cymbals - they can be really musical.

Thanks for the replys, at least with this cymbal I have options. Best of Both Worlds if I buy some rivets, huh.
