It?s amazing how such a simple device is able to alter the sound characteristics of the snare drum so drastically. It doesn?t only suppress the overtones, it makes the snare sound completely different, with a thick and deep sound. It has the power to make my piccolo snare sound like it is 6 or 7 inch deep. It sits quietly on the top of the drumhead and, since it has a large hole in the center, the feel of the sticks over the drumhead remains the same. It?s a very effective and simple way to change the sound of the snare drum without the need to alter its tuning.

Looking for big, fat 70's snare tones? You need this!
Adrian866, 15.05.2018
Perfect on my lively metal snares, this removes all overtones, reduces the pitch of the drum, and gives that classic fat and thick snare familiar from those 70's recordings.
Good quality and has a nice weight to it, so no risk of it somehow coming off the drum in use.
This is the "donut" version, meaning it has a hole of several inches in the center, so it doesn't interfere with how your sticks feel on the drumhead.
Would buy again if needed. Fantastic!

Makes my snare sound huge!
SJ92, 20.04.2018
This is perfect for both live and in the studio because it removes all of the unwanted tones while fattening up the sound. I've tried it on a couple of my snares and they all sound amazing.
