"When cross-sticking, using the rim riser helps me control and get a better grip on the stick which is almost as important as anything when playing on the rim. It is so reliable to hear that warm, crisp snap everytime and with using only half the effort, the rim riser can produce twice the sound if needed. Overall it's just enjoyable to play with!"

"I got the RR this week and it's awesome! I used it last night with this country act I've been playing with and it's killer for the side stick with cutting volume. I know this isn't my typical gig but I was so stoked to get to use it live right away. I'd love to get a couple more at some point if possible for my main few snares so I don't have to take it off all the time. Thanks again, and I look forward to meeting you at NAMM most likely!"

"The RimRiser allows more resonance in my rimshots. It's perfect for marching drums because the added volume cuts across the field."
