Cymbal Resonance System
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.
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. 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.
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 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.
CRS even helps prevent cross-talk in electronic kits! Mount your pads on CRS if you have cross-talk problems.
CRS is endorsed by numerous artists including: Aaron Spears, Benny Greb, Gavin Harrison, Gerald Heyward, Taku Hirano, Curt Bisquera Morgan Agren, and many others. (Not Constantine Cymbal endorsers).
