Lower the pad unit into place with the cymbal holder’s shaft passing through the central hole of the cup section. When mounted, the stopper’s pin should rest inside the pad unit’s smaller hole. * If you were to play a cymbal pad without the stopper’s pin positioned inside the smaller hole, the pad could rotate, causing the cable to be pulled out. It is very important, therefore, to ensure that the stopper is secured as described in Step 5 above. 8. Assemble the felt pad that came with your pad unit. * The second felt pad removed from the cymbal holder in Step 2 above is not required for assembly of your pad unit. 9.
