Interesting sound!
Christi R , 18.12.2018
I like this for the fatness you get, it also allows more of a stick-attack sound than using, for example, a t-shirt. However there is a definite reduction in the amount of re-bound you get from the drum stick. Even though it is great I wonder if it would be just as good to use an old drum head to create this instead of buying this custom made (and quite expensive) object.

Still generally happy with it though and definitely worth trying for 70s style drum sounds.

Produces terrible sound. Use a wallet instead.
Datseris, 10.03.2019
Well, my snare drum by itself sounds very good. I spend hours on tuning to achieve a very good sound.

To play Funk I muffle it using gels and I have a very satisfactory result. Me and my band wanted to play something more on the rap side. I normally would put a wallet on top of the snare drum and be done, but I thought I'd give this a try.

It feels like it is made of high quality plastic and it has a small cut to be easily removable. It definitely seems like it is well-made.

Buuuuut it sounds absolutely horrible on a good quality and well tuned snare drum. The resonance is just too bad. When I put this on it sounds like my snare drum is out of tune. You know the feeling of having extreme snare buzzes crosstalking when hitting the toms? This is how this sounds like.

I really disliked it: Just put a wallet

Fantastic

This is what i was looking for when I was cutting old skin to instantly low tune and kill the harmonics of the snare drum. This Does exactly that. Nothing more nothing less. It can be used also on 14" floor tom to even make it sound lower . Great meterial and good the rubber rim to provide both weight and harmony damping.
