Default Ruggies for drum rug?

Hey guys,

I just saw a commercial on tv of a new product called RUGGIES. It said that they prevent carpets/rugs from slipping and sliding around. They used a few demonstrations that seemed pretty impressive. One in particular, they put a rug on a pane of glass, with a " ruggy" in each corner, they flipped the glass on its side and the rug stayed on. It seems like the material may be similar to moon gels. I'm very interested in trying this product out on my drum rug.
Has anyone heard or tryed this product yet? I think it may be the answer to a lot of hard kick drum stompers that have the problem of their drums moving ahead...

No one?...
I'm ganna hold off on ordering them until I hear of any one having good experience with them. As soon as I hear, I'll let's u guys know. I think it could be a good thing for drum rugs sliding on slick floors.

I too have heard about some types of rugs/carpets that prevent from sliding or slipping. The product you described seems to be interesting and helpful.

Same here, the Pro-Racket rug has a rubberised underside that sticks like sh*t to a blanket.

"Ruggies" are not necessarily new. There have been soft rubber webbing products placed under rugs for a long time.

As far as drum rugs go: Just get a 4'x6' door mat. Places that rent them to businesses often have used ones they are getting rid of. Just be sure to put your name on it so that no one thinks you stole it.

I do have a large area rug that I put my drum kit on. On slick floors it will jump ahead from time to time. The "RUGGIES" I'm speaking of are small pads that are roughly 1'x1' ( one foot x one foot ) and are similar to the material that moon gels are made of. I'm sure a new Real drum rug with optimum grip would be fairly pricey. I was just wondering if the RUGGIES would be a good alternative. It shows on the commercial I saw that the RUGGIES are far more affective then the leading cross webbed material that people use under door mats, bath mats, etc.

One demonstration showed a guy put the RUGGIES on a window then placed a rug on it. It stayed in the upright vertical position as if it was glued there. I thought it was pretty impressive.

I have never had a drum rug move about on me once myself and all my gear have been sitting on it. But if you do, then lead from the front mate. Don't wait for someone else. Get a set of these things and be the first to write a review. What can it possibly hurt? Besides, you saw it on TV.....it must be true. :-)

Does that include your stool?

In my early days, drum rugs/mats etc were a luxury and we tied pedals etc to the drum stool to stop them moving.

To be honest, if you're using your own weight as an anchor (i.e. stool on mat) and the kit is still moving have you thought of a career in cage fighting?

You're right pocket-full-of-gold. I should just go ahead and buy them. And you also got me thinking gaz. My stool doesn't sit on my rug. It makes sense now that I'm thinking of it that my body weight with the stool on the rug should make the difference so it shouldn't move. Maybe ill try that first. Thanx guys.


But just out of curiosity, what would a good drum rug cost with a good grip? Thanx.
