    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.

    This does not work on 6mm stands

    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. ...Read complete review

    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:

      This is an initial impression gear review, as I've not had the quick-sets all that long. The first thing I noticed when I took them out of the packaging is that they had some heft to them - not heavy, but I expected them to be flimsy plastic, and this is not the case. The plastic seems quite tough.

      The center hole on this is threaded, so you can thread it on and off, but the QR buttons make installation and removal a snap. The threaded feature could be used for fine adjustments.

      These things do save the time of winding and unwinding wing nuts, and they do save the aggravation of the wing nut popping off and getting lost.

      If you've got a variety of cymbals, changing them out between sets (and even between songs) is quick and easy.

      The only question I have about these is longevity, but if they last, these are a great value for money (less than the more expensive ones that do essentially the same thing).

            I bought one of these to replace the wingnut on my HH for my electronic drums. I really like it mainly because it's a time saver. My drums are close to the wall and I have to remove the HH trigger cymbal each time in order to squeeze by to sit on my drum throne.So, this saves me time,I just pop it on and turn it to my desired tightness then when I'm done practicing,pop it right off! Great little gadget!

              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!

                    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.
