Vater Percussion has added a new and unique accessory to their product line. Unlike the traditional wing nut, the Vater Slick Nut doesn’t need to be threaded and won’t loosen or fall off while you play. It also dramatically reduces set up and breakdown time. Simply hold in the fastening button, put Slick Nut on cymbal stand to desired tightness and release button.

The Slick Nut can also be used as a theft deterrent by simply tightening the hex set screw on the side of the body. This makes the Slick Nut non-removable, a great feature for drummers who have to leave their drum kits in a club overnight.
The Slick Nut comes in 8mm, the most common thread size for cymbal stands, with top cymbal felt already attached. Hex key and replacement felt included.
