      I have two of the Tama Cymbal Mates, and two of the Vater Slick Nuts. I have compared them both, playing soft and hard, quick and slow, crash and splash. The Tama Cymbal Mates beat the Vater for me simply because of the size of the Vaters. The Vaters are too tall for the stand (unless you have ample space where your cymbal rests on the stand) and because of this, are not able to firmly grasp the stand. I did try to put a nylon cymbal sheath over the metal to give the Vaters something more to hold on to, but it only helped a little. The Tamas held on much tighter. They are very different in size and shape... much smaller than the Vaters. This allows the Tamas to actually bite onto the metal and hold your cymbal firmly (or loosely) without falling off. I tried the Vaters first because I saw Mike Portnoy used them (I'm sure his stands are probably tall enough). I have had my Vaters fall off a few times, but have never once had my Tamas fall off. I currently have a 18" HHX crash being held on by a Tama Cymbal Mate as well as my 7" Max Splash, both are very different applications but the cymbal mate is diverse enough to be used for both. Another factor is the price. You can almost buy two Tama Cymbal Mates for the price of one Vater Slick Nut. I still like the Vaters, but with bigger cymbals they tend to fly off. Vaters are best on splash cymbals.

      I have both Ludwig and Tama (tilting) stands which have 6mm shafts. These quick-set nuts do not work on the smaller shafts. Be sure your cymbal stands have 8mm shafts before ordering. Tama - Musicians Friend - you should indicate in your product specs that this item is for 8mm only!

        Comments about Tama Quick-Set Cymbal Mate:

        I purchased these because I was setting up my son's kit twice a week. They have saved a lot of time and so far have been very dependable. I hope they last.

        Once you pop them on the cymbal stud you can then adjust them by twisting just like a wing nut.

              Being in a local band that plays original music and only get's 10 minutes to setup in between acts.....these things save me about 3 minutes of fiddling around and twirling wing-nuts.

              So far I've been playing out with them for the past year and they havent broke, chipped, or lost functionality in any way. I'm a hard hitter too, lots of crash cymbal riding. I use a traditional style wing-nut on my ride though, just because of the weight of it and how much it flops around when I hit it. I'm sure these work just as well, but I don't want to take the chance.

              The red matches my kit too, an added bonus. Great buy!

              Comments about Tama Quick-Set Cymbal Mate:

              These are just plain great, especially if you're a player who switches around cymbals often. My single concern is that it may make it easier for a thief to grab your cymbal off the stand quickly, so consider a bit of caution when using them live or in a studio setting or where many people are around.
              Also, please note these will not fit on the old-style 6mm threaded posts and can mainly (or only) be used as a substitute for the regular cymbal mates on the newer 8mm stands.

                  So I just Got A Tama Road Pro Cymbal stand that Had one of these babies included with it, and The Second I saw it I fell in love with it. I got it less than a week before a gig I was playing and It Made the standard cymbal Screw Ins (I can't remember what they are Called sorry) feel like it was taking forever to take my Cymbals on and off my Rack. I have Been Drumming for 8 years and I regret never knowing about these. 10/10 A must have for any Drummer

                      Just got 5 of these in the mail today (3 crash, ride and china). Hooked them up and gave them a ride. They held very tight and are def. going to save time setting up and tearing down. Even if you only gig a couple times a month like we do, you should get a set of these. For the price you can't beat them. I took a wingnut to the hardware store to make sure my Ludwig stands were 8mm. They might not hold as tight on a 6mm stand.

                          I would recommend this to anyone considering getting a little something to upgrade your kit in a small, but very useful, way. Undoing the wing nuts on cymbals isn't the worst thing in the world but these pieces actually do make tear down a breeze. Looks uniform and professional too.

                          Comments about Tama Quick-Set Cymbal Mate:

                          Overall, the Cymbal Mate works as advertised. I read in other reviews where other drummers has had problems with these flying off. I have not had that problem but think if you use a shorter cymbal sleeve, the Cymbal Mate would grab more thread and stay on. Even a wing nut will fly off now and then.
                          Goes on in a second. The easiest and fastest way to secure cymbals. A quick squeeze and it's off or on.
                          Seems to be sturdy enough, but it is all plastic. I worry, to a small degree, that a good swat with a drumstick could break it but, because of the small profile, odds are against a direct hit on the Cymbal Mate.
                          For me the Cymbal Mate has great value. I average three one-nighters a week and can appreciate the time they save me in set-up and tear downs.
