Cymbal Resonance System
New invention for drums and percussion. Makes your cymbal stand a combination of a suspended stand and a traditional stand. CRS isolates the cymbal from the stand with a rubber insolation. This allows the cymbal to resonate freely and steadily on your stand without rattles. US Patent 8415548.
Studio and Live.
CRS prevents cymbal vibrations transferring through floors, racks, and stands to surrounding microphones. This can sometimes cause low frequency “wooing” sounds in the mix and in-ear monitoring.
Protects the cymbals.
Owing to it’s unique shock absorbing design, the CRS has the potential to extend the life of a cymbal and prevent cracks, especially for heavy hitters.
Rack and bass drum mounted stands.
CRS prevents cymbals from being activated when you hit the bass drum or other drums on a rack setup, which can cause a ringing sound. It also prevents vibrations from a bass drum mounted cymbal, which can make wooing sounds in the drum itself.
The best of two worlds.
CRS combines the advantages of suspended and traditional stands, offering great stability, while also allowing the cymbal to resonate freely. This is achieved by isolating the cymbal from the stand with a rubber insulator, which lets the cymbal move steadily and uninhibited on your stand, while at the same time preventing unwanted rattles.
CRS mounts are absolutely ingenious in function, construction quality and design. They will completely decouple your cymbals from anything else – cymbals will react and sound precisely like when balanced on fingers.
The main effects for me are…
– increased sustain (esp. when played softly)
– increased sparkle / top end frequencies
– increased clarity and evenness of decay
– no rattling of stands, even with heavy ride + mallets
– no activation of my stack from kick or FT hits”

“Hobbyist drummer playing with Zildjian L80s (low volume cymbals) experiencing distracting resonance/vibrations being transferred when using tom clamps on existing cymbal stands or mounting cymbals on my bass drum. The CRS system is very effective at eliminating the unwanted resonance and I’m happy with my purchase. I had a few questions before purchasing and firstname.lastname@example.org was prompt, courteous and informative. Product arrived well packaged to the US three days after ordering.”
“Hands down the best accessory invented in many years. On stage and in the studio this is a life saver for eliminating unwanted noise from your stands and making cymbals shine. I’ve even got my woodblock on one of these babies.”
“If you’re conscientious about how your cymbals sound as much as your drums , this great device is for you .. the way a good isolation system helps a tom resonate is analogous to what this does for your ‘pies’ – highly recommended!”
“Best cymbals accessories!!!
Its a must have!”
“Here’s a super idea that can change the quality of your sound and improve the result in recording studio. I recommend to the percussionists that they use a rack and want to avoid the vibrations! Thanks CRS”
“Amazing product, really helps separate percussion instruments. (Woodblock~tambourine)”
“Super to be used for tender as well as heavy use of your cymbals. It really makes a difference”
“I bought it last year 2018 and never regret using them. CRS has became part of my drumming setup when comes to cymbals. Try it and you know what I meant when you heard your cymbals sing, you know what I meant.”
“Absolutely a nice idea! It improves the sound of my cymbals and avoids undesired noises. Very useful!”
“I recently got myself a pair of the CRS units. Ive been using them at every gig since and I couldnt be more happy with them. The free-floating system creates a beautiful stick articulation on the cymbal and allows you to use all the washy potensial of the cymbal.”
CRS and percussion.
CRS has a use for percussionists too, giving mounted instruments more resonance and sustain while isolating them from each other.“A common problem is tambourines making unwanted noise when attached to the same stand/holder as other instruments” By preventing vibrations from reaching your instruments, CRS ensures that your kit sounds exactly as it should.
