Wait... Wait... The serious issue here is

Your moongel costs 7 dollars american? What the hell? Apparently the australian version is made of Moon Gold!

Its about 35 dollars for four pieces here. Sheesh, ill stick with using ec2's if i have to.

I HATE moongel! They are ugly, they don't stick and piss me off. I use Evans G2 coated heads now and with proper tuning, we would never need any muffling devices.

And Larlev, I don't have a kick with a pillow or a towel....BUT I DO HAVE EMAD MWAHAHA?

Hey you asked who doesn't use a pillow or towel. Unless you're using stock heads (Pearl or Tama or lower end kits like CB and Westbury), moongel or studio rings aren't needed. The concept of tuning is not a difficult concept.

Either you guys are trying to piss me off...............or you really don't have a clue as to what your talking about....I'm starting to think the latter.

Dude.. the only drumhead that does not have any muffling/dampening is a single-ply clear.....

Hell your "coated" G2's are muffled...what do think the coating is??????

So to say that you don't need it, because it's all about tuning is nothing but BS

Again I use MG when my kit is in the house in my drumroom, playing live it comes off....There is NO difference whatsoever in using 1/2 piece of stupid blue gel on my clear g2's, than there is using a EC2, studio-x.....it has nothing to do with tuning

I couldn't have said it better. I just think some pepole don't get it. Enough already. I have heard sound clips from some of the "tuning pros" here and I have to say i wasn't impressed. If someone wants to use pillows or MG, who cares. This post was started about while the MG is only made in blue. It wasn't about not knowing how to tune a drum. How about the real "pros" that use MG or pillows in a bass drum? I guess they can't tune either.

Moon Gel is the same stuff that fishing lures are made of. Has anyone else noticed that?

But not as sticky, if at all. And much more expensive, compared to sticky-hands and moon gel. Some have a bit of tackiness, but not enough to hold to a drum. Still, can you imagine those scenarios described before, but with fish instead moon gels?

Well, I was just thinking of a dual purpose. You know, a drummer can catch fish during the day and still be able to eat instead of relying on the gig!
