When I first saw this on the internet I was like FINALLY, where have you been all my life and why didn’t I think of this.
My drum kit set up is very close together. I have my toms and snares very close together. I like my kit right and compact but always had the issues of rims rubbing together and/or the rims from my snare bumping and rubbing the finish on my Yamaha Recording Custom.
I got my hands on a few of these (thanks to Helensson). This product is simple but very effective. It works as a cushion to protect your tom from scratches. It’s soft, pliable, and easy to attach.
It has adjustable nylon ends that you attach to your lugs on your snare or tom.
It fits 6, 8, and 10 lug rims. They have various of colors to choose from and styles. They start at $10 bucks a piece. Not bad when your protecting and investment worth $100s or/and even $1000s.
I love it. I use it all the time. I have some on the bottom of my bigger snare drums so it won’t bang on the wood hoop of my kick drum.
I highly recommend these bad boys. Go check them out at www.helensson.com
