Description

CRS is a combinaton of a suspended stand and a traditional stand. CRS isolate the cymbal from the stand. This allows the cymbal to resonate freely without rattles. This also prevent vibration transfering to microphone stands that can cause direct buzzing noises in the mix and in-ear monitoring.

A pvc sleeve is included to protect the threads on the stand when mounting the CRS.

    TL;DR:

    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

    Long story:

    I LOVE cymbals. I play a very nice selection of earthy dry and dark cymbals, hand picked over several years. I have always loved the way these sound when balanced on a finger. If you’re anything like me, you have probably tried out all felt combinations to find out which hinders the cymbal’s movement and sound the least. Of course you do not use top felts either and see no need for top screws.

    I have always felt (xD) the need to elevate my cymbal performance from the sound alteration of even the best cymbal stands and smallest, least intrusive felts out there. But it was not until I read of CRS mounts that I thought I had found a viable solution.

    Even if you want to use a top felt to reduce a crash’s swinging, these are for you and might even increase their life time if you use less than ideal hitting technique – read on for more details. (And write me for a guide on cymbal technique.)

    I watched some YT videos and was thrilled that I could actually hear a difference in sounds that was very promising to my ear. The decay seemed to be a little longer and the sound was different, so I thought to myself “I need to give this a try, might be just what I am after”.

    I ordered seven mounts. The customer support was VERY helpful, friendly and hands on from before buying until after they arrived. Purchase and shipment were fast and easy.

    A slight disadvantage is the forcefully increased height that the CRS mounts introduce. It’s about 10cm and I had to shorten one stand to accommodate for this, but usually and for most, it should not be an issue.

    After installing them, I had to realise that in person, the effects on sound were so much more prominent than on youtube! I could not believe how much clarity especially my rides gained. The sound grew a sort of “confidence” that was not the sole result of the very slight increase in volume the mounts bring with them. The top end shimmer was elevated a little, which was a very welcome addition to the sustain. With dark, dry, earthy cymbals especially, this helps a bit in situations where they might seem a little dull. The touch of the cymbals became different, too – they feel more buttery especially on bell strokes to play due to the slight give that the mounts provide. This does NOT reduce precision or reliability at all, it’s not like the mounts wobble around! This has been especially nice for my china cymbal, which is the only one I have to clamp down a liiittle out of necessity if I play the lip down like most people do. The CRS mounts provide enough flexibility so that china hits do not sound choked or dull anymore. Also, any rattling I experienced before when swelling my rides (esp. the 3100g one) was gone for good – swells are 100% clean now. Also, no rattling of my large stack by kick or floor tom hits – I play it wide ooen without a too felt, too and it is hella sensitive.

    All in all, to say I am pleased would be the understatement of the year. I love my cymbals to death and these mounts finally allow their full potential, these last 10% to shine unhindered. I am regularly just playing the cymbals, listening to them without being displeased by a Thin Crash choking when played very softly or a swelled ride shaking the room or enjoying the total jazz factor of the unbelievably sweetness they provide to rides.

    Yes, they simply ARE THAT GOOD. Worth every penny, and doubly so. I wholeheartedly recommend buying at LEAST one if you are a jazzer (or anybody, really) and see what difference it makes on a ride or thin crash. Trust me, you will never want to put your cymbals on rigid stands ever again. Experience it yourself and thank me later, it’s worth the investment if you are after the ultimate cymbal sound experience like I am. All I wrote is especially true and important in recording, which is another hobby of mine. Your studio will love them!
