Why Cymbomute?



Cymbomute gives you the freedom to achieve more from your practice.

Cymbomute, the best practice mute for REAL cymbals - no pads, no plastic.

For all sizes & types of cymbal.

Keep the feel of your full cymbal set-up - but cut the volume.

All for less than re-heading your kit, or re-stocking your stick bag.


Acoustic practice is great, but sometimes volume is a problem. With Cymbomute you can use your real cymbals but cut the volume. So, if you need low volume, but want real cymbal feel, Cymbomute is the solution. Cymbomute outperforms a standard rubbery cymbal pad in playing feel & volume reduction.

Think About it... 

You love your cymbals. You chose your setup. You love the stick rebound from your ride, you know how your crashes move, you set the splash cymbals to a perfect position. Don't discard this for dull feeling plastic pads! For less cost than new drumheads or re-stocking your stick bag, you can fit Cymbomute and have the freedom to get more from your practice.

"Not only did they reduce the noise but still feeling like I was playing proper cymbals, not pads. My hi-hat responded as normal when played with stick or by foot"
