Weiss Brand Concert Cymbal Holder For Bass Drum - Product Information

This Steve Weiss brand Cymbal Holder is designed to attach to any Concert Bass Drum and allows one of a pair of cymbals to be attached so the bass drum and cymbals can be played at the same time by one person.

It's a must-have for playing Petrouschka and certain Mahler works; also very useful for marches or any time there aren't enough hands in the section to have separate bass drum and cymbal players. This mount attaches securely with nylon straps, so there's no metal-to-metal contact to cause unwanted rattles and no clamp to mar your wood bass drum hoop.

Very lightweight and portable, too!

Works great, could be a little

Comments:

Fits just fine on my rope-tensioned Turkish "bass drum": davul. Doesn't slip or move. This is a small rope-tensioned bass drum intended to be worn while walking. I used a length of rope to tie the cymbal attachment to my drum. The bass of the holder is quite tall. Appears to be taller than what is in the picture and it would have been more ergonomic for it to be shorter but so far I haven't had any arm or shoulder pain even after two hour rehearsals. I have polka gigs this weekend and am confident that this will meet my needs but I do wish that the bass was shorter or at least could be disassembled to make it shorter.

Reliable

Comments:

I've had mine for 6 years now. Playing in The New Orleans Traditional Jazz Band based in Los Angeles, we have done numerous gigs and parades. The cymbal holder has held its own ! Since we are a second line band we dance with the instruments so they get some punishment. No issues with the holder. I will be getting another for a second bass drum.

Tog Works Great, Wish It Had Instructions!

Comments:

The tog mechanism works well, connecting tightly to the bass drum and holding the cymbal for crashing. However, I spent ten minutes trying to get the straps to move until I realized there was a release mechanism. Having an instruction sheet that told the user there was a release mechanism would have saved my time.

Muffles the Drum

Comments:

Don't get me wrong, this seems like a very handy and well designed cymbal to bass attachment in itself, but the thickly padded side of the mount heavily chokes the bass drum shell when the straps are attached and tightened firmly to the tension rods. This in turn completely chokes off the fundamental of the bass drum no longer allowing it to sound like a bass. I'd rather try a vintage Ludwig cymbal to bass drum hoop mount.

Flash from the past.

Comments:

This little devise is perfect for community band or small band groups with limited players. One player can do both the bass drum and cymbals at the same time. Better then playing a cymbal with a drum stick.
