      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:

        I saw these several times in Modern Drummer magazine. I never for a second believed that this would have any effect in improving the sound of my hi hats. I wanted something that would keep a tighter grip on my hats. I got that, and more. As soon as I put these in and played the hats, I couldn't believe my ears. The sound was incredibly improved, clearer, crispier, precise. The improvement was dramatic. I have to admit I was in disbelief for a second, but I am a believer now. I ran to my iPad to order cympads for my ride and crashes. I haven't tried them yet so I can't comment on those, but the cympads for hi hats are truly incredible. These cympads are high quality and I expect that they will last for a long time. I keep them in my gigging drum set, so they are not on 24/7, therefore I don't expect they will flatten with the cymbal's weight.
        I am very skeptic about new things that "improve" the sound, but cympad has proven me wrong.

            I recently purchased these to replace the worn out felts for my hi hats. I wasn't getting a tight enough clamp when the pedal was down with the worn out felts These cympads do an amazing job! First impressions are quite good. We'll see how they hold up in the long run.

                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.

                          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.
