I tried those when they first came out years ago and I would say it's negligible if they actually help. I've been playing my same cymbals without cymbal springs for almost 20 years and have never broken any. So I'm not sure it would help you. Your mileage will vary depending on how you play and what you're subjecting the cymbal to.

I can't see what you're referring to. I tried a cymbal spring more than a year ago, but all it did was to damage the threads on my cymbal stand.

I've been thinking about a cymbal spring for my china too. Just wondering if they could potentially be worse for my china than normal felts and sleeves?

I've had my china on one - the yellow one, for almost 15 years. It had two cracks in it from before I started using the cymbal springs, and neither crack has moved since. I would only put them onto a stand you don't like very much, the tension screw will probably damage the cymbal post threads. But I do believe they have protected the cymbal.

I just bought a couple more of them recently and the new ones won't screw down tightly. The rubber washers won't tighten to a closed position, there is a small gap between them. My old ones would screw completely down. That was better. They have a weird ring now because of the gap. I'd try one first before you buy it. If you can find one that screws down completely, they are much better. I had all my cymbals on them, and now I just use the old yellow one for my china. The others are in my hardware box.

I bought some on a whim. Cymbal Springs are absolutely worthless...
