      Comments about Cympad Optimizer 3-Piece Hi-Hat Felt Set:

      I got not only the hi hat "felts," but the 15x40mm Cympads and the 70mm Moderator Cympad for the ride. The change is subtle but definite. They somehow open up the cymbal a bit. Compared to traditional felts, these inhibit vibration from transmitting to the stand (you can feel the difference if you hold the stand while striking the cymbal). Unlike traditional felts, these don't distort in shape. The hat Cympads made the least sonic difference, the ones for the crash cymbals made a noticeable difference, and the Moderators subtly dry out the ride cymbal, and can be changed out for the regular ride Cympad. The change these make is subtle, but noticeable, which was surprising.

          Comments about Cympad Optimizer 3-Piece Hi-Hat Felt Set:

          These are the first of the Cympad line that I have purchased. It's really unbelievable how much better these felts make the hi hats sound. They're more of a foam than felt but it's immediately obvious how high of quality these are.

                I like it. Seems to allow the clarity in the cymbals to resonate better. First time using this product so I don't know how long it will last.

                    Comments about Cympad Optimizer 3-Piece Hi-Hat Felt Set:

                    These washers made the Hi-Hat's operation much more stable and predictable. I get a great "chik" sound every time, since the cymbal maintains a flat position without shifting around. The sound with a stick is more precise and easier to control too.

                        Like one reviewer already said, the change is subtle but definite. They turned my cheap ZBTs into fairly good sounding cymbals. They're worth a shot if you're looking for a felt alternative for hats.
