About HCS

The 5-piece HCS 8/10/12/14/16 Smack Stack features five discs shaped to create a distinctive sound effect. The stack can be manipulated by adjusting the tension of the cymbal stand’s wing nut.  Increased tension produces a crisp attack and short decay ideal for quick accents, while a looser setting yields a longer sustain.  Works well when paired with a snare drum for enhanced back beats, or as an alternative to your snare altogether.  Use all five discs for a fuller sound and increased projection, or mix and match a few sizes to find the sound that suits you best.  The discs are sized 8”, 10”, 12”, 14” and 16”.
