Re: Moongel vs dampening rings
I tried moongel about 6 months, but i prefer the open sound on my toms. I was kinda liking the one piece of moongel on my snare, but it is a pain to deal with all the time so I stopped using it. I lose them all the time, or other drummers take them off when they play my kit then put them in weird places. So I got me a ring again. I use it only on certain songs and they work well to tame a cheap metal snare drum with overtone issues. I've always used one on my Gretsch snare. There is the widest ring I've ever seen on the metal GP snare at my other band's practice garage. I'm not too fond of that snare, so now I'm using an Acrolite. That thing has internal muffling!
