The RimRiser is one of those inventions that is so simple and so effective; you wish that you had thought of it first. The purpose of the RimRiser is to amplify your rim shots by creating a supplemental device that sits above the drum’s rim. It is an extension of the drum and does an excellent job of increasing the crack of your rim shots. The RimRiser is very easy to install, comes in a variety of colors, and fits onto one of your snare’s existing lugs. I found it to increase a significant amount of volume that almost echoes when you strike it. If you want to get more out of your rim shots get yourself one of these RimRisers. You will not be sorry.
