Spinbal™ adds a totally new dimension to cymbals. An ultra smooth bearing system in a precision engineered housing, which fits on most standard (8mm) thread cymbal stands allowing cymbals to spin for up to 10 minutes or more. This gives your cymbals a unique, mesmerising appearance which is enhanced by stage lighting randomly bouncing off a polished, hammered cymbal surface. However this is merely the ‘dramatic’ effect, there are also excellent acoustic benefits.
Spinbal helps eliminate cymbal 'modulation'. When a cymbal is struck the whole surface distorts. This distortion is massively reduced by the centrifugal effect of its rotation when using a Spinbal. Very valuable in both recording and live situations, it will reduce unwanted tone ‘modulation’ in the cymbals sound. This can be especially noticeable during the cymbals ‘decay’ after it is struck.
An extra benefit is even if the cymbal is not actively being spun, Spinbal randomises the striking locations on cymbal surfaces dues to its sensitive bearings. This will help to reduce key-holing and even cymbal cracks.
