Re: What else have you guys used besides Moongel?
Back in the day all quality sets had internal tone controls. Why they ever did away with them is beyond me.
I experimented with Moongel and rings.
Finally, being "old school", I bought and installed Ludwig internal tone controls in every drum (except the kick) in my Gretsch Catalina Club set.
It's a little bit of work, you have to take the drum apart and do a little planning and use care when you decide to drill but in my opinion it's by far the best solution. You can go from full on to completely off and anything in between with a few quick turns. Besides I think they look cool and give the drums a little bit of that "high end" look.
I have never had a problem with them rattling.
