    Comments about Gibraltar Rubber Cymbal Sleeve - Short:

    These cymbal mounts are perfect in that they allow the cymbal to freely move, so that they ring clearer and are less prone to being broken on a hard smack. They come in two available sizes - long and short, depending on the length of the rod from the tilter to the tip. My Yamaha stands take long. All manufacturers should drop the felt mounts currently used on cymbal stands and include these rubber sleeves instead. These are the future. How it works: remove felt and previous sleeve from stand rod. Separate this two-piece (upper and lower) sleeve and slide the lower one over the stand rod. Place the cymbal on the sleeve and then slide the upper piece on, put on wing nut. When the cymbal is struck, the cymbal "wobbles" freely. I have them on all cymbal stands. Excellent product - Excellent.

      Comments about Gibraltar Rubber Cymbal Sleeve - Short:

      When I first got them I was wondering if I made a mistake. But after putting them on and put the wing nut back on. I left the wing nut a little loose but I tightened it down and the cymbal still had plenty of movement. I still left it loose a little. What I did notice was the sound. The cymbal just sounded better. Only thing I can think it is the rubber in between the cymbal. I'm going to see how these hold up and if they hold up good without tearing or show major wear I get a set for all my cymbals. The price is ok and I'll save on felt spacers.

      Comments about Gibraltar Rubber Cymbal Sleeve - Short:

      These have less surface area contacting the cymbal than felts. This allows your cymbal to ring out more fully. I really love the streamlined look of these too. I just wish they were a touch less expensive.

      SAY GOODBYE TO FELTS!!

      By 

      from Oklahomo

      Comments about Gibraltar Rubber Cymbal Sleeve - Short:

      You will never need to buy felts again! Even when you tighten these down as far as the wingnut will let you, your cymbal still gets to move freely. I was going to buy new stands, but instead I bought three of these. Glad I did! Highly Recommended.
