Default Remo O-rings or Evans MIN-EMAD dampeners

My kit is in a small studio that is quite resonant, I was thinking about buying either one of these for my kit to dampen over tones. Has anyone used either of these and can you adivise me as to which of the two is better.

I have the Evans plastic rings (yeah, they make 'em, too) and they work well. I got a pack with 12, 13, 16 and then a snare pack with two rings both 14" but different widths. They really quite things down. I never ever use them if I'm playing rock n' roll and I need to cut through the guitar amps

I find the rings heavy handed. I would try the Mini EMAD

The remo O rings are very heavy handed, and a good deal thicker and larger than the evans E rings.

I use an evans on my snare, and it manages to cut out annoying ring, while still allowing some of the drums natural resonance to come through. The Remo O ring on the other hand kills it dead.

Aquarian also makes a similar product called Studio Rings. They are usually cut thinner than Evans or RemOs, so they don't choke up the sound as much.

Hey guys thanks for the feedback, yeah i have tried out the remo's and i see what you mean, completely kills the character. I have heard good things about moongel although i also heard it doesnt really dampen toms over 13" very well. ill check those aquarians out too, sound prity good.
