A lot of older cymbals were damaged by key-holing - the friction relatively soft brass against the relatively hard steel of the cymbal post wore a "notch" in the cymbal. This was more than just ugly; the cymbal would settle into that notch and would no longer spin, causing it to be struck again and again in the exact same place, reducing the life-span of the cymbal.

Back in "the day" before sleeves commercially available, we used to make 'em using 1/4" tube from the hardware store (a solution that works well). Eventually Zildjian came out with sleeves which were just 1/4" nylon tube cut to length.

The newer ones (these) have an integral washer at the bottom and are threaded at the top so they don't fall off in transport. There are two kinds, shorter and long; which you choose depends on the length of your cymbal posts, how tight you want your cymbals (I like mine as unrestricted as possible), or both.

These are cheap - buy extra. They wear out, and they are meant to. The plastic is softer than the brass, so it rather that the brass of the cymbal, gets worn away. MUCH cheaper to replace these than cymbals.

Why only four stars? They're cymbal sleeves - kind of like Dr. Scholl's shoe inserts - they may be necessary to stave off damage but you can only get so excited about them.

    Comments about Gibraltar SC-19A Extended Flanged-Base Cymbal Sleeve:

    When you look at key-holed cymbals from the 30's-70's, you'd have to be nuts not to use a cymbal sleeve - cheap protection for your investment. These are as good as any - they thread on (rather than just slip on) and the plastic is filled with some reinforcement (fiber glass?) that makes it so these last a long time. Keep some on hand to swap out if you wear yours down, or for that house kit that requires you to bring your own cymbals. Cheap price to protect your expensive cymbals.

              Comments about Gibraltar SC-19A Extended Flanged-Base Cymbal Sleeve:

              They're great, very long but easy enough to cut with a hack saw or something. I think I rather the sleeves without the flange on the bottom because I have a bunch of metal washers that are thinner and fit better because they can move. but these are nice enough. Especially since the selection for sleeves is slim on this website.

              Prevent Keyholing

              Comments about Gibraltar SC-19A Extended Flanged-Base Cymbal Sleeve:

              A simple item that's often taken for granted, but if you want to protect your investment in Cymbals, these are worth it. Keeping extras on hand in your roadcase first aid kit, is a good idea as well.
              This is a replacement for worn out sleeves I have. They're threaded inside, so they stay put. They will eventually wear out but that's the very nature of why they're available.
              These are about the same quality of many original equipment parts.
              Save my cymbals from "Keyholing" for this price?....a no brainer.
