Re: Moongel vs dampening rings
I don't like Moon Gels because they only muffle along one axis of vibrations. I feel like unless you use all 5 on your snare, you can still find a playing position that will ring. But if that doesn't bother you, they are really good job at preserving the natural sound of the drum once you put them on. That is a major pro.
The richie rings are awesome. I use them on one of my snares. They really do a perfect job of damping imo. For the sound I'm looking for, they are perfect. But they do have a very distinct sound. Adding a Richie Ring can really change the way your drum sounds to me. Not better or worse, just different.
