Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Feels sturdy. Simple design means less that can go wrong. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Great for quick set-ups and tear-downs at the push of a button. The biggest flaw in the design is that the opening isn't large enough to accommodate plastic cymbal sleeves, which meant I had to trim most of the sleeves (although I suppose if it latched onto the sleeve, everything could slip off together). To be honest the ability to lock it in place for security isn't going to stop a determined thief, it's really more a deterrent for the casual sticky fingered person. Sound How is the tone? N/A General Your general opinion of this product. Good for the drummer on the go. You can have a whole set of cymbals off in the time it take to unscrew a single wing nut. Value Was this item an overall good value? By itself it's a decent value... but if you're changing out an entire set the cost of these can add up really fast. Appearance Appearance The only other downside is that these look kind of bulky, though probably less so to people in the audience. Certainly less sleek looking than simple wing nuts. Chrome would be nice...
Cut down on set-up and tear-down time.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It is built very sturdily, locks onto the cymbal stand very tightly. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? With the press of a button it mounts right onto the cymbal stand. It's issues are that it has a fairly narrow range of sizes it will fit. It only seems designed to fit modern standard 8mm posts, not slimmer 6mm posts found on cheaper or "vintage" cymbal stands. It also doesn't accommodate nylon cymbal sleeves, so those will need a little trimming. The Slick Nut can be locked in place with the turn of a set screw, which will deter casual thieves... but let's be honest, if somebody REALLY wanted to steal you cymbal, they'd find ways around the nut. Sound How is the tone? N/A General Your general opinion of this product. Though perhaps a little prep work is required to accommodate the Slick Nut, when it works it works great. Value Was this item an overall good value? Good value compared to all-plastic varieties out in the marketplace. Appearance Appearance Certainly less sleek looking than a shiny wing nut.
