Gas range vent pipe/cap noise from rain

Do they sell any type of vent cap/cover that won't resonate a "cow bell" sound down into our kitchen for every rain drop that hits the cap?

Any other solutions or ideas? We also get some noise when it is windy but I think this is from the flapper inside the vent pipe.

Do you mean the roof vent for the range exhaust hood? If so...and you have a flat surface...you could try putting a shingle on it using silicone or similar. I know...seems kinda silly, but I bet it would work.

The thin metal is like a drumhead..adding a shingle (or really..just about any dense material) that will stand up to the weather will help if not eliminate the problem.

If exhaust hood just add material as gunguy suggests. There is no high temps involved.
