Default So I wanna get a Ching Ring...

...but which one should I get. I want one I can play with either stick or Hi-Hat pedal. I like the kind that John Bonham used (it shows it in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AaFVUlV0rvI this video [at :41]...what brand is that?).

LP's

Rhythm Tech's

(8 or 16???)

or Meinl's
http://drums-percussion.musiciansfri...ine?sku=491229

...or another brand?

If you want to be able to hit it with your stick, looks like the Meinl's would be your best option, the other's don't seem to have a good spot to hit.

I use the LP160 shown here:

http://www.lpmusic.com/Product_Showc...ambourine.html

I've got it mounted to the hat stand, underneath the hats. Depending on how hard I "chick" the hats, it starts making noise. I find that when I mount it on the hi hat post itself, it gives a little too much action, so my end result is a happy medium.

I have a rhythm tech and it works well. I don't hit it much but when I do it seems to take it OK. Make sure you mount it high over you top hi-hat cymbal. I would most likely go with the smaller one so your not apt to whack it while you play the hats.

I recently picked up the RT ring. Freakin' love it. But the Bonham one looks like a different companies version. Although I'd say the RT would be the closest looking thing. Then again I like the look of that LP one as well, you can loosen the nut and swing it out of the way.

Thanks Chazz for showing me that.
Does that one just slide down on the rod or does it mount (It doesn't show how it mounts in the picture)?

Here's the Pearl one that razorx just mentioned: http://www.steveweissmusic.com/produ...97/tambourines
The Pearl one looks like it's built like a tank though compared to the other ones and it looks like it has a powder coat on their metal...nice. Here's a vid. I like the sound: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFnMLE32OdQ

I'm really interested in the Meinl or the Pearl one. The Meinl is really small in diameter which means it won't get in the way of playing the hats with the stick (the pearl looks to stay out of the way too), but they both have a great rubber coated striking top. Do any of you guys own them? Are they durable? Do the wing nuts strip out easily? Is it loud when you play with your foot/stick? I can find no reviews for it online.

I own/play the pearl one. My dad uses it more than i do. When he plays it with his foot i can hear it outside of my house and he plays on the third floor.

That one (from what I remember) doesn't come with a sort of wing nut...back in the day
when I owned one, I would attach it between the felt washser's above the top hi-hat cymbal
and use the hi-hat clutch to Hold it down.... the only bad thing it would remain on my hi-hat the whole set.... which I got use to.. or STOP & unscrew the clutch & felts & remove it.

Now, currently I'm not using one, but if I did I might go after the Pearl ching ring which has it's own wing/thumb nut screw to remove!

Best

Default Re: So I wanna get a Ching Ring...

I use a Factory Metal Percussion Hi-Hat jingler. I like it alot because it can either be mounted on the hi-hat rod like most of these ching ring type products, or it can be hard mounted to the hi-hat clutch, which is what I did. I like it on the clutch because it gives a different sound on the hats, especially doing open and close patterns. Very nice ching in both mounting variations. Also, I'm not sure about the other products, but these are adjustable to vary the "chinginess"
