Wedgie Premium rubber cymbal washers introduce a new standard for cymbal washers. For decades drummers have really only had one option for cymbal washers. Now, they have premium cymbal washers made out of a high quality elastomer (rubber). These washers were engineered with five touch points to minimize contact with the cymbals, which provide cleaner, longer-lasting tone.

The visible cell wall structure is offset from one side to the other to flex and respond while still supporting the weight of the cymbal. Wedgie's premium cymbal washers are more durable than the traditional felt variety, which peel apart over time. You invest a lot in your cymbals, now bring them to life.

Includes 5 cymbal and 2 hi-hat washers.

A Great Idea

By Da Dude Man

from Louisiana

Comments about Wedgie Premium Rubber Cymbal Washers:

Good buy. Happy customer.
They're the same thickness as felts but they don't wear out! That's worth the purchase right there. Buy 'em once and you're done! Though I probably wouldn't put 'em on the tops, just for aesthetic purposes. I honestly didn't notice any sound difference. Seems kina far`fetched to me.
Like I said, I think they'll last a while. And they look exactly like the pictures.
Maybe a tad high, but I only need em for bottoms. So not bad really.

Buy 'em

By TBone98

from Mid-Atlantic US

Comments about Wedgie Premium Rubber Cymbal Washers:

Played with felts 43 years. I've had the same set of these on my DW stands under A Custom cymbals for about 2 years now. Sound clean, work great and don't wear out like felts. I still use felts on top to keep the "standard" look. Rated 4.5 on value b/c I think they could easily cost less and therefore be more accessible to more players.

Must Have...

By El Guapo

from South Eastern United States

Comments about Wedgie Premium Rubber Cymbal Washers:

Wedgies act like 5 tiny fingers supporting the cymbal...opposed to rather large and sound-robbing felts. Typical felts have a contact-footprint of roughly 1.5 inches. Wedgies have a contact-footprint of roughly .35 inches, and are made of a semi-hard rubber so they promote vibration rather than absorb it.To get a feel for how this works... take a cymbal and place it upside down in the palm of your hand...strike it. Now...support that same cymbal with your finger tips rather than flat in your palm.Hear the difference? that's what Wedgies do...albeit to a lesser degree.I don't know why these or something similar are not standard on all kits, as there really is an audible difference. It isn't much...but it is there. Cymbals respond with a little more shimmer and sustain. I've been using Wedgies under all of my cymbals for at least 4 years now, and I've never had a problem with cymbals cracking. In fact...the notion that these could lead to cracking, is absolutely absurd.

If you like broken cymbals...

Comments about Wedgie Premium Rubber Cymbal Washers:

I purchased these a few months ago, and within the last two months, I have broken five cymbals, and I've RARELY broken cymbals before. I did not change stands, or the way I play or anything, only I started using these. It's the only explanation. Don't buy these unless you want broken cymbals.

Cleaner Overall

By StaticFloor

from New Phila, OH

Comments about Wedgie Premium Rubber Cymbal Washers:

I'm used to traditional felts, believe me. I wasn't expecting much of a difference when I ordered these, but when they arrived and I replaced some of my felts, there was a noticeable difference. The sound of the cymbal is generally more cleaner, and the wash is rattle-free. This is perfect for suspended cymbal and rolls. For ten bucks, only a couple more bucks than quality felts, these guys are pretty much worth it.
