Note - The Grombal is designed to be used with standard 6 or 8mm threaded
shafts. Many cymbal hardcases use a 10mm stud to secure the cymbals
in the case. In this situation The Grombal would have to be removed
and replaced each time the cymbals are transported.
this case, no pun intended, we are sorry to say we do not recommend
using The Grombal. We hope to have a solution to this issue in the
future. Thanks and please, use us where you can.
- None needed. The Grombal effectively moves the sleeve function from
the stand to the cymbal. And keeps it there.
- Instead of felts, use the CymbalChief.
The large base of the Grombal was included to protect the cymbal from
contacting a metal
support washer if felts were not used or available. This same base
also isolates full felt contact with the cymbal if they are used.
We recommend you try them without felts, our goal is to reduce the
drummers spare parts load. But if you use anything, use the CymbalChief.
- Again, optional. The flexible design of The Grombal allows the deflection
of the cymbal to compress The Grombal against the shaft of the stand
to keep the cymbal in place. The more the cymbal moves, the tighter
the grip. Drummers encounter missing wingnuts, our goal was to safely
allow the cymbal to be played in the absence of a wingnut, but it
is compatible with wingnut use.
We do recommend proper support, it adds to the life expectancy of
Better yet, to eliminate
loose, noisy metal washers from the stand completely try the new
The perfect compliment to the Grombal.
