The Gibraltar iso feet aren't quite as heinous to look at and work the same wonders.

 

the 10.5mm size work fine on 9.5mm (3/8ths ") legs but will not fit on 12.7mm (1/2").

You should get some Pearl isolation floor tom feet. They really helped my old round badge kit that I had (and wish I still did).
Great job cleaning those babys up. That is a great finish, just classy!

Gee those isolation feet might work pretty good but boy talk about UGLY... in fact those are extremely UGLY and talk about how to ruin the beautiful retro look of a vintage kit... just add them.

 

 

I agree, they are ugly as sin, but they work really well. 

Those Gibraltar feet look great. Do they work as well as the Pearl feet?

Never used the pearl feet so I can't say but I have the gibraltars on all my floor tom legs and they make a noticeable improvement . The bottom half of the spherical lower portion of the foot is hollow which gives it enough flex to de-couple the leg from the floor.
