Traditional cymbal toppers can be a pain. Have you ever gone to switch out a cymbal and manage to drop one of your wing nuts on to the ground?

It used to happen to me all the time: at shows, in my practice space, etc. Since discovering these, this problem almost never occurs.

I picked these up a few tours ago at a Guitar Center near where I live. I noticed them on the back shelf and saw they were discounted.

Probably the best find I’ve had at a GC.

These things are life savers on tour. They attach to your existing drum hardware by removing your current plastic cymbal holder. Remove the topper by lifting up on the top of the unit.

They’re very useful for house kits that require cymbal changes during a show. If you’re sharing your kit with another band on tour, it’s a good idea to get these as well.

They look pretty rad on the cymbal stands, as well. I’m shocked these aren’t more popular.

After months of use, just as with regular cymbal holders, the sharp edges of the cymbal hole will eat away at the plastic, effectively rendering them useless. While not a lifetime solution, they’re still a good one.
