Default Where's all the 8 & 10" e-rings at???

I'm on the hunt for some 8" and 10" Tom dampening rings. I can't find them anywhere. Well, the 10" are around, but I can't find any 8" rings anywhere! Do any of u guys know of a company that sells them? I'll even order large packs if I have to. I find moon gels aren't the same at all. I gatta find some rings. Any help please?

Thanx.

Banned for crimes against resonance. :-)

Back in the day, guys made their own ritchie rings by cutting out old heads. If you're struggling to find any that's always a tried and tested option.

Just make them from old drum heads, or... don't use them because they kill the sound of your drums :]

Have you tried any heads with built in dampening? Remo pinstripe for instance.

If your using single ply batters then try aquarian studio x, it has a ring of power dot material around the edge of the under side work perfect for removing some unwanted high freq. overtones.

Thanx alparrott. I just ordered it. I looked on amazon for muffle rings/ e-rings. I wasn't aware that Aquarian was calling theirs studio rings. That's why I didn't see them. Thanx for the find! Now it's all over but the waiting.
Thanx everyone for the replies. I did consider making some out of old heads, but I don't have any beat up spares laying around. Thanx.
