Many old cymbals have smaller cymbal holes that won’t fit a modern cymbal stand. And some players feel that even modern cymbals benefit from the freer breathing movement of the smaller rod size on older stands.
Here’s my answer. This adapter screws onto the top of a modern M8 stand, and gives you a 1/4"-20 thread, just like older American-made stands.
A couple of these in your bag, and your old cymbals work with any modern cymbal stand that comes your way... or enjoy the practicality of a heavy modern stand with the thread size of an old stand… OR just have a quick, convenient solution when the backline is missing felt+sleeves.
Hand-machined in the Latos Drums workshop with:
+Solid brass or stainless body that will patina and age gracefully, receives the modern standard M8 size thread
+ vintage-spec 1/4”-20 thread rod on top.
+ Silent, “squeak free” clear vinyl sleeve
+Vintage-style cupped washers (NEW: now custom-made of long-life stainless steel)
+Minimalist, vintage-aesthetic wingnut
