That is nice and charmingThat makes me understand why one of my factory rivet cymbals is a rivet cymbal. It’s a great symbol without rivets but with one rivet it’s a head turner. The Turks knew.
In my experience a chain is not comparable to rivets. Chains choke the cymbal and the sizzle sound is heavier. Not louder, but heavier as in less finesse, less breath. Years ago I made a dumbed down version of that Cherry Hill sizzler to test a cymbal. It sounds like real rivets.
Don’t laugh too hard. ? This is the most MacGyver piece of drum gear I’ve ever cobbled together but it works for testing...
