Yup, I do. I use them on my Classic Maples because they make miking them so much easier. On the extremely rare occasions where I'm not miked up, I won't use them, but I can't even think of a time where I've not used them in over a year. I only use them on my snare drum on my 3-ply Ludwigs. My 3-ply kit is so mellow and warm it doesn't need them.
