A subtle effect with some drawbacks
VitalTransformation den 29.04.2018
I used to have a "Sizzler" and my main complaint was that the effect is too subtle compared to "real" rivets.
So, this not wanting to drill holes in any of my expensive rides, I bought this hoping for a more useful sizzle sound. While the Rattler is definitely louder, the weight of the chain kills a lot of the sustain of the cymbal. So it will not be sitting permanently on my kit.
Furthermore the sizzle noise of both this and the Sizzler give a sort of "glued on" impression compared to rivets.
In the end these products aren't really substitutes for the real thing, but if I had to use one, it would be the Sizzler since it does not kill cymbal sustain and tone to the same degree.
