AS DESCRIBED ABOVE THE MOUNTING SCREW IS TOO SHORT, NO DIRECTIONS AS TO HOW FAR UP OR DOWN TO PLACE IT AND IF NOT PLACED PROPERLY IT WILL HIT THE SNARE HOOP. TOTAL FACT OF THE MATTER IS THOU; IF YOU GET A LONGER SCREW AND GET THE PROPER PLACEMENT FOR HEIGHT THEN THE OLD SCHOOL PRINCIPAL REALLY REALLY WORKS. MY FIRST SET 48 YEARS AGO HAD IT AND I'VE USED ONE ON EVERY SET SINCE. THE ONE I USUALLY GET WAS SO FAR BACK-ORDERED THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON THIS ONE AND WISH I'D HAVE WAITED.

          Installed vacuum plugs on end of threads to keep from loosening up and falling off inside the drum. Adjust felt surface to head contact for uniform sound between different size drums. ( small diameter drums - small initial felt contact with head )

                            I've installed five of these. They work as an internal damper should! I like that the knobs are metal as opposed to the plastic most are made of these days.

                            Since there are no instructions, I will mention that the proper place to mount these is with the larger hole (the one the knobs shaft goes through) apx. 2" below the top head/shell edge. On some drums I go as little as 1 3/4" ... others as much as 2 1/4".

                            One more note: the included mounting screw is fine for metal or thin wood shells ... but will not be long enough for a thick wood shell. Also, the screw is very small and easily stripped if you over-tighten it.

                            Snare drums used to come with mufflers (back in the 50's-60's). Well, now there are more choices of heads that didn't exist back then. A muffler can adjust the amount of ring to your drum and can also eliminate it for that drier sound. I like the adjustibility without having to apply tape on the head. It's east to install, but this product doesn't come with instructions. I definately recommend using a muffler for that custom snare sound. This may just be the product you're looking for to get the snare sound you want. I definitely recommend these!

                              Intent for this was to make a smaller drum sound like a traditional 1800's field drum. This was only part of the modifications.
                              This item needs some mounting directions. The drum I have had no mounting holes for a muffler, and no directions came with the device. I drilled two holes, then had to drill more because I guessed wrong. :( Other gripe: should have an end stop to prevent backing the nut off the adjustment screw, which would require removing a head to replace. Supplying two more nuts and directions to install as a jam nut on the end of the screw would be a cheap fix.

                                My Pearl snare just plain didn't have a muffler, which if you ask me is the greatest oversight in the solar system. This was a great modification with mininal drilling on my steel shell. Buy this if you need a replavement muffler or just have a snare that never had one!

                                This is a very well made muffler, and it's holding up pretty well thus far, but I'm a heavy hitter, so we'll see! My one problem with it is that the spring arm should be a lot stronger, it has "memory" when you tighten it up all the way, and you're best to leave it once tightened up; this won't hurt the arm, as its metal seems to be quite soft. I wish someone would make a stouter muffler with a stronger arm. But it works.

                                I just got this about a week ago, and i thought it was pretty cool, but i didnt really like the fact that when my snare was tuned kind of low that i lost a lot of the sensitivity. But today when i tuned the batter head up higher, and got the muffler on, it sounded so amazingly beautiful!! my snare seriously sounds like the same one that Chad Smith of Red Hot Chile Peppers uses! dont even consider getting this. do it. You will be glad you did. My snare drum has the perfect crack and attack ive been wanting for about a year. i almost got a new one, but not anymore!! thank you so much pearl!!!

                                            needed to eliminate excessive "harmonic echo" in new snare drum. This helped somewhat. In defense of the standard , common design I would say this is the traditional approach to solving the "problem of "overring" in the drum. This is simply, a cheaply made "knockoff." I would note that the provided screw that was intended to secure the "muffler" to the shell of the drum, was too short.I HAD to provide the proper size and length of new fastener to properly secure it to the shell of the drum just to get it installed! Cannot recommend this one.

                                              When these internal mufflers were introduced, we didn't have threadlockers like we do today. I installed this in an old drum that originally had an internal muffler and after assembly, added some threadlocker and never looked back. MUCH easier to use/adjust than those little moongels.

                                                Screws are too short for wooden shells, had to go to hardware to get longer ones, No directions, when you install these put the head and rim back on the shell Before you drill the holes to prevent the possibility of the adjustment knob running into the bottom of the rim when you install it. Otherwise they work well.
