I have been playing with Aquarian Cymbal Springs for about 6 months now and this product is great. I mostly play rock but with the design of the springs would be great with any style play. The springs keep stress off the cymbals and without a doubt increase the life of the cymbals. The best is between the rubber pads, keeps the hole of the cymbal protected. Worth the money!

I used to use cymbal springs years ago. I recently bought some new cymbals and decided to give them a try again. I bought some of the light duty for my splashes and smaller crash, and some heavy duty for my larger crashes and ride. Bottom line: they suck. I have Tama road pro cymbal stands that I think are fairly standard. The screw attachment for the cymbal springs screws directly into the threads of the stand! Not only is this a bad idea for the threads of the stand, but it doesn't hold securly and loosens up after a little playing (unless you srew it so tight that it destroys the threads on the stand. Fortunately, it is hard to get it screwed down that tight, because they use a flat head screw!?!?. Okay, lots of modern equipment uses flat head screw technology, right? They replaced the forgiving felt cymbal washers with two different colors of some kind of rubber or silicone. They don't conform to the cymbals as well as felt, are not as forgiving when they meet the cymbal, and when they contact the cymbal is is audibly noticable. EOR!

      Comments about Aquarian Cymbal Spring:

      Caps right on top of your cymbal stand. a side screw keeps it in place. The spring preserves your plastic cymbal triggers by keeping them from cracking where they mount. They also keep the cymbal from turning so your trigger pad stay where you want it

        Comments about Aquarian Cymbal Spring:

        Yes, this device will relieve stress on a china type cymbal but it requires one to slide the unit over the stand threads and tighten a screw, which can damage the threads. It should be threaded, so it can screw onto the stand not clamp to it.

          Comments about Aquarian Cymbal Spring:

          Not a bad idea, if it would screw on straight. I can see the benefit of having one of these, but when I put it on my stand, it didn't feel like it was going to stay on, like the weight was going to pull it down or something. Sorry, but I like the sturdiness of the regular flanged-based cymbal sleeves.

                      Comments about Aquarian Cymbal Spring:

                      This is a far cry from the original Cymbal Spring which worked very well.
                      You'll find several serious flaws in the design of this version:

                      1. The entire point of the Cymbal Spring is for the spring (not the cymbal) to absorb the impact of a stick hit. SInce rubber pads cannot be clamped tightly down onto the cymbal, the cymbal moves around between the pads and the entire purpose of the device is essentially defeated.

                      2. The receptacle for the post on your cymbal stand is not deep enough and is too large to be secure.

                      3. You'll need a screwdriver (not a drum key) to tighten the clamping screw to the post of the cymbal stand.

                      I'd recommend against purchasing this.

                        Comments about Aquarian Cymbal Spring:

                        Honestly guys, this is a MUST HAVE. I've been using these for over 10 years, and they're amazing. I'm not a metal drummer, but sometimes do play heavier louder pop rock songs, and prior to owning these, I've cracked a couple cymbals. I've NEVER cracked a cymbal since switching to these. They allow the cymbal to absorb the impact and flex more naturally. For those who've complained that the screw ruins the stand thread, its irrelevant. I'd never take these off, and they've stayed on secure over the years of playing. Use the red ones for Crash/Splash.... Use Yellow for Ride and larger Chinas.

                        ive played drums for 12 years now, and i never bought one of these before. I just recently got my first wuhan china, and heard that they crack really easily (and ive seen them crack too). so i decided id play it safe and spend an extra 10 bucks on something that wont break. And well, this thing is great. I was playin the china on a normal stand before my spring came and it would wobble all over and never stay in the position i would initially put it in. once i set up the spring it became so perfectly sturdy. Id say that having a spring is necessary for anyone who plays a china cymbal and who gets a little picky about cymbal placement. also if you were wondering, it doesnt look stupid on the kit either. i might take a black sharpie to the yellow felts, but thats it.

                        Comments about Aquarian Cymbal Spring:

                        Where do I start. The concept is good, however poorly engineered. I have 4 China cymbals. For years (20 +) only one was hanging on one of these. Recently (for piece of mind) I installed one on the other three. To my surprise the design hasn't changed in at least 20 years! Just like my original, the top nut doesn't sandwich the cymbal tightly against the bottom nut leaving a gap between the cymbal bell and the top and bottom felts causing all kinds of rattling noise(felts are some kind of hard rubber material, maybe a stiff latex material would be better). I had to install an additional thin felt to dampen the noise! Also, the top nut cross threads easily so be careful when mounting. The other issue is the way they mount on the cymbal boom/stand. They slip over the threads and secure with a set screw that mashes into the stand. Come on, can't they they design a less disfiguring mode of attachment. I guess after 20 years, perhaps not.
