Pinch the Grombal base firmly and push the edge of the smaller flange up through the bottom of the mounting hole.

Once The Grombal is partially inserted, you can work the smaller flange through from the top for easier installation.


That's it, you're ready to play.


Tips for using The Grombal-

Important 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.

In 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.

Sleeves? - None needed. The Grombal effectively moves the sleeve function from the stand to the cymbal. And keeps it there.


Felts? - 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.


Wingnuts? - 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.


Cupped washer? - We do recommend proper support, it adds to the life expectancy of the Grombal. Better yet, to eliminate loose, noisy metal washers from the stand completely try the new CymbalChief. The perfect compliment to the Grombal.
