Default home made ching ring for less than 15

my old one broke and was never that good because the pins (as is often the case with all commercially available hihat tambourines) were exposed and so got bent.

So i cut out the center bolt and plate and purchased two light plastic children's tambourines (4.5'' across - so ideal size) and merely glued them together with the center bolt between them. i filed a pair of grooves on one of the tambourines so that the tongues of the center bolt would sit snug.

and there you go - a ching ring which is better (IMO) than any other available and half the price. i might add a little rubber gasket over the top rim so that i can hit it as well.

The Rhythm Tech Hat Trick G2 is a wonderful ching ring and sells in the US for between $15-20. It also easily slips on and off of the hi hat stand
