What is "Super" moongel?
Thanks, and I hadn't really thought of that, I usually disengage the snares and put a drum stick across the drum so it rests on the rim but underneath the snares to create like a bridge, but its a bit of a hassle and I lose where the snare were set since I have to set it to no tension and disengage so the stick fits under, the paper towels might be a better solution.
Although with this drum since the wires are so wide they cover where if hit the head to tune the 4 lugs next to it, I have physically move and hold the snares out of the way so I can hit the head near the lug, I think you can see it in one of the pictures.
As for "super" moongel, I think they have upgraded the moongel and its just a marketing gimmick. It looks the exact same and same container as normal moongel, this one boasts that it'll stick on anything even reso heads or the underside of cymbals. Probably a gimmick.
