Summary: I was in the process of figuring out a new set of heads for my drum set. I wanted something that produced less of an echo and more of a dull thud. Rather than get new heads, I invested in this Moongel. It turned out to be exactly what I needed.
Summary: I Don't know what I would do without this product. My floor toms ring more than my rack toms, this brings them into balance. My Ride cymbal isn't "dry" enough, (Zildjian Earth Ride 22"), This quiets it down just enough without losing the 'ping'.
Summary: I have been recording drums for 10+ years professionally and nothing beats Moongels when you need to get the attack and tone of a snare or tom focused. I have tried the old tape trick where you leave a flap sticking up, I have tried the really thin rings... nothing comes close.
Summary: They work brilliantly for eliminating nasty overtones when you play, especially for snares. But my kit is by my window and after leaving them on there for about 2 weeks, they had bleached pink by the sun and had become weirdly overly-sticky.
Summary: I can't test these out yet, so can't give feedback on them working or not. I can give feedback to say they are tiny and not quite what I expected. Will have to let you know how they perform after Christmas, but I am a little doubtful!
