OVERVIEW

You'll never go back to regular wing nuts again!

A cool-looking, convenient, and time-saving method for securing cymbals to stands. Unlike the traditional wing nut, the Slick Nut doesn't need to be threaded on or off and won't loosen or fall off while you play. Simply hold in the fastening button, put Slick Nut on the cymbal stand, and release the button. It can also be used as a theft deterrent by tightening the hex set screw on the side of the body. This makes the Slicknut nonremovable, a great feature for drummers who have to leave their drum kits in clubs overnight. The Slick Nut fits stands with 8mm threads and has a cymbal felt attached. Hex key and replacement felt included.

    I have been using these for a year playing about 2-3 gigs per month. Transport them attached to the stands knocking around my hardware bag with my other stands. No signs of damage or wear.

    If you need to break down and setup quickly between sets, I highly recommend these. Dealing with wingnuts on cymbal stand tops used to be somewhat nerve-wracking, over-loosen a wingnut in a hurry and it would go bouncing around in the dark (I'm sure most gigging drummers have had that experience before).

    Only con I've noticed is the locking mechanism on one of the three fasteners is a little more stubborn when securing into place. But ultimately it still works, and I've never had to lock my fasteners onto my stands.

    Haven't had any threading issues either using a sound percussion boom, a dw straight and some no-name straight.

    You will probably have to experiment with different sized felts to get the feels/responses you want from the cymbals just right. Didn't take me much time or effort to get them right. I squeezed a couple of additional thin felts I had lying around beneath and above the cymbal. Then put on the fastener, no washers.

    BOTTOM LINE:
    Really worth it for gigging drummers.

    I received 6 of these 2 weeks ago. They are an awesome concept. They just didn't work for me. 2 of the buttons stopped working properly, which made them almost impossible to take off. Had to use all my strength to rip them off the stand. If they can get the design better these would rule though!

        I've used the Slick Nuts for over 6 months--so far, they have held up to the tear down and set-ups. You will need to make adjustments with your felt's for the perfect flex of the cymbal--but overall a good product. Should have purchased years ago.

                    They don't stay down unless you lock them in. This is not what I was hoping for thinking of returning them.

                        I bought one of these just to try it, and boy, was I impressed. The slick nut makes it so much easier to fasten cymbals onto a stand, and the slick nut grabs tight so it doesn't come loose. Needless to say, I ordered 9 more for my other cymbals. Extremely time saving and easy for drummers with many cymbals.

                          I love these fasterners! They do the job of holding the cymbal in place, without needing to adjust or lock down ever again. I did not have any problem with setting up. The felts, as provided, worked fine with all my cymbals. I bought three and now want to buy ten! Maybe a bit expensive. But now I can focus on the music and NOT the gear! Buy them - they look great and work well.
