Anybody have a source for cymbal bag dividers? Humes & Berg used to make them but I've exhausted my searches trying to find some. I'd prefer padded dividers.

Thanks in advance for any help.

My wife made me a ton out of felt, cut felt in 20” circles then sew 4 or 5 together from 3 to 9 o’clock. Cheap, effective and proactive.

Meinl used to or still does make some, I think they were for hard cases and have a center hole but would work. Tackle makes some canvas ones that they sell separately. I took some out of an old Ludwig Bag that I only use to store drum heads in now. I use them now and then when I take just hats and put them in a snare bag separating the snare and hats. I also have a cymbal bag made out of denim that my mom made me about 25 years ago when I first started playing out. She made me some tom bags as well. Sewing is a lost art these days....Nacci glad to see your wife still does

My how we’ve all (most) evolved and become so sophisticated.
Doc , your thread reminded me of the days of my youte ( best Pesci voice)
Wasn’t even aware of such a thing as a cymbal bag nevermind dividers. Cymbals were stacked together and set on top of the bass head , bass was loaded into dad’s station wagon laying flat so the cymbals would move around, held in by the hoop.
Drum cases ? What the heck were those! Nowadays I’m so fussy I want handmade fine Italian black leather.

Carry on

DIY answer: Buy some felt from a Michaels or AC Moore or Jo Ann fabrics. Or find plate bags at a Home decor atore or JC Penneys... something like that. The plate bags usually have pads for inbetween the plates. They won't be any bigger than a charger plate but better than nothing.

I'm honestly not that worried about my cymbals rubbing together in the hard case. They don't really move in it. The only concern I have is to put a divider between my sizzle hats and another cymbal. The rivets worry me a bit. I actually use pieces of a cut up egg crate foam mattress cover.... don't know why I didn't suggest that the first time. Haha
