Default Ideas for rubber mounting gaskets?

I have a tom mount that is missing the flat black rubber gasket that cushions the attachment of the mount to the shell. I have been to an auto parts store but what they sold was either too thin or made from cork. I'm sure some of you veteran restorers have solved this problem.
Thanks in advance and Happy Fourth of July!

I have bought small rubber pieces in a package at local hardware store. Check Home Depot as well. Usually comes in 6"x6" size.

Felt works just fine.

Yes Felt works, I have used the felt furniture pads which have self adhesive backing... (I don't peel off the backing)..

Another good & plentiful material is the advertising refrigerator magnets that fill up your mailbox... just use them face down.. easy to cut and trim with either scissors or a Stanley knife..

Cheers

I've used leather purchased from a hobby store. Lots of colours too if you want to get away from basic black.

For lugs I once used the rubber from a bicycle tire tube. Laid the lug on the rubber and cut with a exacto knife.
