Default Need help IDing a piece of gear

Last night at rehearsal for the jazz ensemble at the community college I attend, the teacher/director told me that there's a device out there that you can clamp onto a ride cymbal that will give you the rivet sound without having to actually put rivets in it. I'd be willing to check it out, unfortunately I forgot the name of it and I have no idea what to search to find it. Does anyone have any experience with this and could either post a link to one or suggest a search term for me to find it?

I only wish I didn't sell it years ago.

For a low tech and low cost option, drape a piece of very light chain down over the bell onto the bow of the cymbal.

Just go to a hardware store and you can buy a Ball Chain for about 2 dollars.
It is the same thing!

Thanks for the advice guys, I'll try the chain for starters, if it doesn't work I'll try the ProMark thing out. Does the rivet sound work for rock playing also (using it on my own kit) or is that pretty much strictly a jazz thing.

the beads on the promark thing are a bit heavy. it doesnt sound like a riveted cymbal, but it does have a similar effect...

edit: riveted rides DO sound great in a jazz setting but can also be used other times.. it wont be the best for your main rock ride but i guess you could swing it if you really wanted to.

Yes the chains work fine but not as good as rivets.

I made a chain sizzler by taking a round tinker toy part, drilling out the holes and running chain through it. Same concept as the Promark Rattler.
