Default Re: Colored Cymbal Felts?

Excuse if I'm reviving and old thread:

Much more so than a felt. So then when your cymbal and the pad rotate while playing, the cymbal gets angled in all kinds of weird directions. It was pretty disastrous.
I've now figured out that DW felts are the most consistently flat and most durable.
Anyway, here's where you can get the colored felts:

Steve Smith, Thomas Lang, Antonio Sánchez, Stacey Lamont Sydnor, Rich Redmond, Nate Morton, Gordon Campbell, Tony Braunagel, Brendan Buckley, Roland Garcia, Taku Hirano, Pete Lockett, Dave Mattacks, Sammy Merendino, Stephen Perkins, Felix Pollard, Toto Oznantek, Stanley Randolph, Walfredo Reyes Jr., Bobby Rondinelli, Swiss Chris. They are all excellent, professional drummers żok? So, żare they using or were they using a piece of equipment that is wrong, useless or doesn't function?
Good question żuh?
