Listen, All the below comments that say don't buy do to not being able to tighten the bottom cymbal failed to take the time to think this through. All you have to do is use a Cymbal washer on top of the top felt and then it tightens down. Not to hard to figure out. This product does a wonderful job and is a great price. Sure beats buying a boom arm to attach to a stand when this is all my 12" china needed.

I bought the six inch stacker to stack a 12 inch splash over an 18 inch china. Seems to be enough space, but when I got it I realized there was a major flaw...theres no way to tighten your bottom cymbal using the stacker! The bottom should be reverse-tapered so there could be a washer that compresses the felt on the bottom cymbal--just like the top, but upside down. I can't let my china just hang all over the place loosely. This stacker was a complete waste of money. Sorry Gibraltar--your my brand, but you messed this one up bad.

      this is a great addition to a drum set. looks really good and leaves enough room to hit both cymbals with control. if your looking to spend little money for a big addition this is what you need.

      Comments about Gibraltar Mini Cymbal Stacker:

      This riser comes with a plastic and metal washer. If you put the felt on the bottom cymbal, then the metal washer, and then the threaded riser, you can get it as tight as you wish. Then the plastic washer goes on the felt from the riser the cymbal, then the second felt then the wingnut. If you still have the piece give it another try.

      Comments about Gibraltar Mini Cymbal Stacker:

      First off these are threaded for 8mm so they may not fit all stands. To check you can bring your wing nut or cymbal arm to a local hardware store or Lowes and they will have a guage to check. Second for all the simple minded, lack of problem solving people out there, YES THESE CAN BE USED AND YOU BOTTOM CYMBALS STILL CAN BE TIGHTENED!. Its called a washer. Find a washer that can fit over your threads but the stacker will not go through. Place the washer between the stacker and you top felt. Tighten you bottom cymbal to your hearts desire. This combo is just like using a regular wingnut. I never had any problem with the stacker not being tight enough and falling off being installed in this manner.

      Just about perfect!

      from KS

      Comments about Gibraltar Mini Cymbal Stacker:

      If you just don't have room for cymbals anymore get this! Perfect for small splashed & accent cymbals. I bought the 6" thinking my cymbals would bonk each other every time I hit them (I have a 8" & 12" sabian splashes) There is plenty wiggling room, so for those size of cymbals get the 4". But if you have 12" and a 10" cymbals get the 6" stand. Also, after awhile of playing it may come loose from the screw hold. Just make sure it's tight after every song you play it and will be fine, also one other small gripe. This is the 8mm, so for all the other older & cheaper stands it probably won't work for (Like older tama?s, Ludwig?s & gretchs) So make sure it will fit on your stand! Overall it's perfect for me!

            On sale, worth purchasing rather than "rigging something up" to save a buck. The height is just right. Anything shorter or longer would be awkward (for me). Quality is good.

                    Great cymbal stacker with an awesome price tag! Best feature of this stacker is that it actually screws onto the thread of a cymbal stand rather than having to be clamped on.

                    I will suggest that if you plan on stacking anything with an inverted bell (such as a china or china splash) that you invest in a taller stacker as you'll lose a couple inches of seperation between cymbals and your cymbals will be much closer than anticipated.

                      I use in daily practice, they hold 8" china splash, 10" splash, and 14" crash. You should check for tightening after daily practice but they do the job, I can see myself buying a 4th one as I play a 9 piece kit with 13 cymbals.

                            These are great!!! Ive only ever bought the 6" Inch, I know theres is also a 4". Someone mentioned in another review that the cymbal below " free floats" when you ad these- which can only be true if you have somehow managed to put this on incorrectly. (which is kinda mindblowing) Ive bought three of em and they are specifically good for adding a 6, 8 or even 10 inch splash to a cymbal stand- a 12 inch would probably be a little overwhelming on the lower cymbal for one of these however. They are easy to use, on & off quickly, practical & well designed... and they very, very affordable!!! Love it.

                                    I have two of the 6 inch ones. i have a 16 inch crash and then with this a 10inch splash above it and i never hit the wrong cymbal. the other one is a 14 inch and 18 inch. you can do it with a 2 inch difference but i like to go at least 4 inch. now here is the bad part. you can't put a china on the bottom unless you are going to put a china on the top too. there isn't enough height for a china on the bottom and a crash on top. also you will want to keep a pair of pliers with you. if you over tighten these things they are impossible to get off without some help. but i really like these and i might even buy a third. i love cymbals and have about 15. so being able to use one stand for two cymbals is nice.

                                    I've used these before and they work quite well for adding small splash cymbals to your set without adding more chrome. The only problem I had with the new ones I bought was that the threads were poorly machined. They were rough causing difficulty in screwing them on the first time. However after working them back and forth a few times they fit fine. They have nice thick felt washers also. I like them.

                                        This cymbal stacker allows me to add another cymbal without having to buy another cymbal stand or taking up any more floor space.
