In this Drum Green! segment, I show how to turn any cymbal into a sizzle cymbal using two common household items. At the end of this DIY video lesson you'll be able to take one of your existing cymbals and turn it into a Sizzle Cymbal in seconds — no drilling, no rivets, no chains and no after-market gadgets! Better still, this isn't permanent... you can add or remove the sizzle sound to the cymbal of your choosing at will — all in the blink of an eye!!!
DRUM GREEN! is an educational effort at the Drummer Cafe — offering and demonstrating Do-It-Yourself (DIY) projects, ways to re-purpose common items, and foster environmentally conscious concepts for reducing, reusing and recycling.
