Don't change sticks, upgrade... make your favorite sticks even better.
Like an effects pedal for your cymbals. Even let's you create layered sounds with double impact hits.
They're also black-light reactive, so they glow under black lights (& some types of blue LEDs). Great for cool looking live performance visuals... & in videos too.
CymTone rings are made from a very special premium-quality, non-marking, & acoustically reactive silicone polymer blend - custom made exclusively for Maxonix, not available anywhere else.
Use & Placement:
to maintain your usual cymbal playing style, place cymTone rings onto sticks just below the spot where your sticks normally impact cymbals, so you can continue to play as usual. When you want the added cymTone sound, simply adjust your stroke a little so that the ring makes contact with the cymbal.
With a little practice, you can target & vary the amount of wood & cymTone ring(s) that hit, or combination of both to create varied sounds.
Alternative placement; put onto stick below where your hand grips the stick (the "butt end" of the stick). Then, switching stick ends provides the opportunity to get cymTone ring impact sounds. This technique may be combined with other placements at the same time.
Try cymTone rings in different configurations & combinations to create varied sounds or to get your ideal sound results, such as:
• double (tight or spaced apart)
• triple (tight or spaced apart)
• quadruple (tight or spaced apart)
• separated single & double pairings
• stacked or intertwined multiple rings

1) Hitting cymTone rings against the sharp edges of cymbals may damage & cut the rings. For best results & long product life, impacts against the upper surface of cymbals are recommended -- basicly, anywhere except the edges.
2) Not recommended for use on sticks thinner than 5A, such as 7A sticks, since the rings may not hold firmly onto the stick.
Note About Price:
I had originally hoped to offer the cymTone rings at a lower price, but to make the best quality & best performing product, during development I discovered that we needed to use a custom polymer material, custom size & a custom color. All those "custom" factors made it more expensive to produce than envisioned. But, I hope everyone will appreciate the high quality results. (Also, prices on this website have to factor in the shipping costs too). Thanks for your understanding & support.
