keep us posted on their quality and function.
Well, so far so good. I have them on a 14" x 5.5" Yamaha Birch Custom Absolute snare, will have a second practice night tonight, and all seems good. They are of course softer than the plastic washers, but are a bit rougher so seem to provide some grip to the rods.

But I'm not a hard hitter (we play jazzy folksy stuff), rarely ever do rimshots, and can't hear the difference between having these washers versus the plastic ones, so I guess it was $15 wasted. Ah well, now I know...
