What is the best way in everyone’s opinion to use these washers?
Do most of you guys put one under the steel washer and call it a day or do you prefer, BT washer/steel washer/BT washer, like they show on the package?
Just trying to get a feel for these.

I used these on a supra recently. My problem is the tension rods I used. I ordered new rods from DFD and they came with "captured" metal washers. There is no way to put the leather washer above the metal so I just used one leather between the metal washer and the rim. To be honest, I haven't noticed any difference at all.

Thanks, I used 20 of them on a Noble and Cooley SS snare with die cast hoops and captured washers. It’s kept the tuning pretty well.

I wanted to put them on 6.5”x14” hammered bronze Supra, it has no metal washers, might as well just play around and see what happens.
