Rim Riser USA
Rim Riser USA. - Well, all I can say is 'simple is better'. In this case, you can't get much more simple than this product. You attach this Rim Riser to your snare rim, wherever you desire. While playing, the lifted rim allows better cross-sticking, rim clicking, stick control, sound consistency, and gripping than on a standard drum rim. Available in seven different colors to match your kit. A definite performance enhancement to your style, sound, and polished skills time after time."
"The RimRiser allowed me to play a rim-click without having to modify the way I hold the stick. This lack of grip modification makes for a much more comfortable and ergonomic cross-stick playing. For another The RimRiser also seems to facilitate playing faster and more complicated rim click patterns. I suspect the RimRiser might become a standard item on many drummers’ snares once they realize its possibilities."
David Libman for Traps magazine, Dreamkit Review issue; Feb. 2008 issue
"Playing without the RimRiser now feels as though my hand is hunched over the stick, and I'm more aware of lifting it for playing the rim-click pattern. Playing with the RimRiser also makes the transition between playing rim-clicks and regular snare shots much easier. I can now make the same move faster and smoother than before. Plus, the sound is, indeed, more consistent."
