Quick grips 8mm/ 6mm question


Gold Member
I recently purchased a 4 pack of Tama quick set cymbal mates:


I used these on some older Pearl stands I have and replaced the wing nuts with these. They work great and I love them. The Pearl stands are all 8mm and these fit perfectly.

I have 2 Sonor 6 mm and they do not work. I have searched all over and cannot find any quick grips that are made for 6 mm, does anyone know of any or am I better off just selling the stands and getting ones that are 8mm? Thank you.

Vater markets the old Slicknuts, which were available in ¼/20, 6mm and 8mm (not sure if all sizes are still made...) Trick also has a similar product, not sure if they offer the 6mm.
