Splash on Snare?


Junior Member
Does the type of splash cymbal effect the sound when placed on a snare drum? I love that hip op snare sound with a splash there and looking to get one.

Are there any recommendations for an affordable/cheap splash cymba that would work for this?

There won't be much difference.

Small splash cymbals are cheap anyway, but you could probably get something for free that does the job.

I tried a zildjian 6" splash on my snare and it gave me a great classy trashy effect. but would have liked a little more playing room with a little smaller cymbal. found a Paiste 2002 4" accent cymbal on amazon for $41,but not really sure if i will use it that much ? good luck

You'd get a nice hand clap electronic type of sound. Years ago i got a Meinl 10" Drumbal. Johhny Rabb helped design these and are made to put on snares. Can get various sound out of them as well and they don't cost that much!
