Ideal Solution to a Perinnial Problem
11.06.2018
I've used hard pads, mesh heads and an electronic kit for practice. None have quite worked for me These pads are ideal. A set of these, coupled with the Thomann/Millenium "Still" quiet cymbals (more affordable than the Zildjian range) the volume of the kit is reduced by 80% with very good feel. The pads are easy to remove when the kt is needed for gigs. Highly recommended.

Very handy / very expensive
Kasey Peters, 20.07.2017
The RTOM Black Hole muting system is a very convenient way of making your acoustic drums much quieter (80% apparently). I have one on a 14" snare for teaching and use it together with Remo Silentstrokes on the toms, which I bought beforehand. They both have the same bouncy mesh feel and both are tunable. The advantage of the RTOM is quickly popping it on and off your drum as needed: they do not require changing the head. I can envision using Black Holes across my entire kit in future, but not until the price drops. I understand paying for innovation, manufacturing, distribution, etc. But the materials used are not gold.

Great concept & quality, but expensive
Dave99, 09.02.2018
I really like this product. My practice space is also my home office in the garden, so it's pretty small by the time I get another four guys in there. We play mostly traditional Irish music, not amplified. In this context, the Rtom Black Hole system is absolutely invaluable - I get quite a bit of the tone of my lovely walnut snare (albeit muted), and everyone else can hear themselves play.
No one ever gets upset with the loud drummer - a revelation. When alone, I can take it away in 2 seconds, put in some ear protection and practice on my normal coated head at normal tension.
The ability to adjust tension combined with the solid dot area in the middle set this system apart from normal mesh heads - it's not exactly the same as a 'proper' head either, but it's a pleasant place in between. I enjoy the sound, I get to practice on the drum I adore (which I find an important motivation to practice) and I don't have to change heads and re-tune. I consider that there's enough tone and snare sound showing through that I can probably use this in a very quiet, acoustic live setting too.
It's really expensive, but underlying tone is retained to a reasonable extent, the quality can't be faulted and the convenience is wonderful. Really good if you have deep pockets.

Nice pad for toms
SteelTrueDrum, 17.06.2019
I bought this product to compare it with other drum muting pads. I test 12" Evans RealFeel pad on batter head of my snare, Remo SilentStroke and 14" Sabian QuietTone Pad. On snare drum - Remo SilentStroke is too springy and bouncy (not real rebound). Evans RealFeel gives the best sound and Feel on snare. Sabian QuietTone is good enough too. RTOM gives you ability to play rimshots, rim-clicks and everything you want.. BUT RTOM a little louder than others and it gives you unpleasant ringing from the snare of drum. but I think is the best choice for tom muting. Silentstroke has too short sustain but RTOM's sound lasts much longer.

Good sounding, easy installation and absolutely quiet
Macrouldba, 27.02.2019
Little bit pricey, but it does its job perfectly. I can now discharge tension at home!

Very easy installation and good sounding.

I have yet to adjust it with the inner ring (I just put it and play)

And for the sound. I have recorded stuff with it at home without any noticeable difference from the real snare and tom.

Will buy it again if broken or lost.

Al het gevoel zonder het lawaai!
Toeken, 28.03.2019
De dempers zijn geweldig. Het voelt en reageert zoals een snare hoort te zijn en neemt het volume naar beneden. De tonen zijn goed, dicht bij de echte drums, slechts 70% stiller . Meer oefenen betekent betere drummer !!
