I've been using Slicknuts for several years, but after getting a couple of the Tama quick release toppers am switching over, with a small change.

Before installing the topper I glue a hihat clutch felt to the bottom. I've been using these felts on crashes and splashes for some time, and like them better than the large kind.

Looks smart. Same with the Slicknut. I was really thinking of turning to something like this since before long I sense I'll inadvertently strip the wing-nut threads.

Last I tried anything like that was the Aquarian Cymbal Spring , which I liked. Twas long ago.

Currently using what came as part of the Kit, which are Mapex OS Cymbal Accentuators, and are harder to describe than simply show.

They seem to allow the cymbal to sound-out its own sustain and tonal voice - whatever that might be.

I like to let the cymbal ring and wobble as it needs to. I usually don't inhibit it. I do choke the cymbals from time to time - rarely,actually - without trying to follow Carmine Appice's patented cymbal gymnastics.

Copying your Mod but gluing my 'cymbal accentuators' there might be a way to work both angles.

I don't tighten my cymbals down, but do restrict the motion of rides and splashes. It feels like smaller felts give me a little more control. I'd like to try a couple of those rubber sleeves on crashes sometime.

The best thing about those click-on mounts, for me, is that they save the time that's otherwise spent screwing the nuts on and off the stand.

Hear, hear ...

Or dropping same and crawling round attempting to look as though nothing was amiss (people seeing only the soles of your shoes and your trouser'd derrier - how professional).

LOL!! I usually found the wing nut after everything else was packed. I really like Tama hardware.

When the Slicknut showed up on the market I had to have it. About a year and a half ago I purchased two Tama Boom Cymbal holders and they came with the new Cymbal mates; nice product.

I normally donít push it down tight but Paul has an interesting idea, I think Iíll try it. Thumbs up
