“My favorite Moderator is the 70mm. For six years, I hadn’t been able to use a China cymbal (in the show) because it was too loud. But my gig is rock based and I was missing that China sound. Six years later the Moderators came to town and I used the 70 to tone down the cymbal. It was perfect.”

“With Arturo, we play a lot of fast jazz and he always wants to hear ‘the tip of the stick’. Moderators let me control my ride. Plus, when I’m on tour, I never know what cymbals I’ll get from backline. So I always carry a pack of Moderators. They’re a life saver.”

“Using my Moderators beats tightening down the wingnuts to try to take wash out of a cymbal. The different sizes
are an easy way to make any cymbal drier and pingier. The smaller Moderators are also handy in church to keep things under control.”
