I have an Ion cymbal that's starting to 'go bad'. I was using it as the ride. When I hit it, the gems explode, but I'll still hear a clank and the meter drops. During a long run of ride notes, it's just clank clank clank and the meter drops into the red, even though they're exploding and I'm getting points.
I've switched the cymbal to a crash, obviously gets hit less often, but still I get crash-clank.
(The replacement cymbal works fine, gems explode and no clanking.)
What's going on when RB registers a hit but seems to also consider it a "miss"?
