Fixing Alesis cymbal

Postby jgrills » Fri Jul 14, 2017 8:42 pm

The rubber is separating from the main cymbal, and the flappy rubber is causing errant hits. I tried an easy fix with some strong double stick tape, but that didn't last too long. I've now completely cleaned the cymbal and the rubber of all the previous failing adhesive, so I now have clean surfaces to reattach to each other.

What should I use to reattach the two? From what I could tell from cleaning it, I think they have template-cut double-stick adhesive patches that exactly match the shared surfaces. I've been thinking about spray adhesive or some large patches as well. Please advise!

This is currently the leading candidate:

I think the "permanently flexible" and "vibration proof" features of this adhesive matter the most, particularly because the cymbal undergoes so many (and forceful) impacts from the drum sticks.

Those do sound like good arguments for this adhesive. "Bonds to rubber," too.
