The Tone Tabs are practical when it comes to permanently influencing the overtone behavior of skins. Although the strips can also be removed from the skins, but this is by far not as repeatably simple as with damping gels (eg RTOM Moongel).

The damping effect of a tab is not so high that you need 2 (± 1) of it to free a beat of its overtones. A similar effect can also be achieved with gaffa tape or self-adhesive felt discs (for chair legs).

So what can the Tone Tabs really use?
The Tone Tabs look neat and remain in place even with frequent packing and unpacking of the toms / snares and can be easily played with the stick. This allows you to control not only the overtones of a drum, but also the attack by sticking the tabs to the center of the beat. Likewise, the Tabs allow a reliable damping of the reso, which can help drummers to accompany the unfamiliar emotional pop balades can produce a thicker sound.
Even "nervous" Snareresofelle can be tamed with the tabs, if one likes the associated loss of sensitivity and sound volume.

I like the Tone Tabs and will buy more. However, they are not really cheap. If you are looking for a strong damping or like to remain flexible in the dampening, you should be more likely to use gel.

If you only want a little attenuation, but it should be uncomplicated, reliable and visually appealing, can even taste the Tone Tabs. Experimental drummers and percussionists (eg against "biting" timbales) will find with the Tone Tabs also new sound options.

What I do not like is that in a pack are 3 white and 2 clear tone tabs. It would be better if I had only one of the two varieties in a pack.
