Not really to knock Pro-Mark, I love their stuff. It's just that, you can get a foot of ball chain at the hardware store for a buck and a half, loop it around the cymbal felt and voila! A sizzle chain is born, for FAR less than a sawbuck. That's why only four stars, because I think you have to be one seriously lazy-a@@$d drummer to Spring for one of these over a trip to True Value or Home Depot. Yup, some folks don't have access to a store, and then this is a good idea, but still... FWIW, you can get the smaller (about 1/16" or 1.5mm) balls for a subtle swish, and the larger 1/8" or 3mm balls will give more of a rivet sound. Both are about as effective as rivets, which is great from a versatility standpoint. One Hint: the chain should not fall over the edge of the cymbal, or it will dampen it; the balls generally need to out to within three inches or less of the cymbal's edge, depending on taste. The more and larger the chain, the more collateral dampening will occur.
