Default REMO's Drum rings... Richie RIngs, Studio RIngs.

Personally... I almost always use these on toms... Does anyone else like the tone they get with these? Any other thoughts on them?

Made plenty of those (old school) before anyone started marketing them. Personally, I buy the Powerstroke 3 head, mostly. And the Evans Genera.

I used them a long time ago but I try to avoid them now. You shouldnt have to use them IMO if your toms are good quality, you have the right heads and tune them well.

COOL! how is the powerstroke 3 head on toms? i currently use Coated emperors on my toms.. do PS3s take away the overtone a lot?

Personally, I prefer the Powerstroke 3 over the Emperor (maybe just cause i've used the Emperor head so often). The P3 falls somewhere between the Emperor, and the Pinstripe. Gives the drum a nice "phat" sound.
I like to "change" my drum sound. And more and more, I'm changing out the reso. heads, finding out what "different" combo's sound like.
Nothing "wrong" with G2's over G1's .... or Emperors over Ambassadors, but for me, been there ... done that .... kinda like ...we could all drive "white" cars ... but why not be different.

I always use them for rehersals because they make me play more precise but never for live performances

I don't use any muffling at all on my toms but I tune them very carefully.
Before I was good at tuning I used "moongels"

So my advice is to keep practicing tuning and try some moongels in the meantime.
One moongel near the rim on each tom and I think you'll love how they eliminate the
overtones but eventually (with practice) I think you'll be able to tune your toms
to sound great without any muffling.

I use coated emperors and love the tone.

same here - i wouldn't use muffling unless major $$$$ was on the line to get a quick / dampened sound in the studio. i use head choice for my "muffling". i really dont see a reason to use rings on tom, snare with all these modern head choices w/ all the layers, rings, coating / thickness built in. PLUS if it is an unmic'd gig, you probably do not hear the "ring" you are trying to get rid of out front in the audience with all the instruments going on, etc.

Yeah, if anything, a moongel should do the trick. Theyre very small, cheap and easy to use.
I just tried one at GC on a snare the other day and they really work.
