After reading some of the reviews in here I was skeptical. Glad I purchased 3 of these for my toms! I have a Mapex Pro Studio Maple kit and never cared for that little bit of sustain in the toms. I installed these to muffle the resonant heads, and they work perfectly! Now if I want that little extra ring, or deaden them a tad, it's a 2 second adjustment! Mounting them was a breeze with no mistakes. Hint; measure down from the bearing contact surface of the shell 2 inches for the adjustment knob hole, then mark the other screw hole with the bracket as a template... super easy. This sets the muffler in the middle of its range after installing. The mounting screw was just long enough to clear the 8 ply shells and muffler bracket. I used only the large flat washer and some red loc-tite on the screw. Another hint; use drill bits just large enough to clear the adjustment knob and screw, makes for a nice snug fit. I'm very happy with the price, quality and results of these Pearl Mufflers! Someone stated that the adjustment knob was plastic, they were wrong, their made from steel :) This product got a full 5-star review from me... love them!!

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.

          All snare drums should come standard with internal muffler. In the old days, most did.

                  Surprised I could get this for this price AND free shipping. The only negative is that it has no instructions for mounting. It's pretty obvious how and where it should be mounted, but those who must have directions may be frustrated.

                    Replacement for a stripped original of a different manufacturer. This was an excellent replacement and of better quality. Highly recommend. Improves the sound quality immensly

                      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 )

                          no instructions but seems to be best installed 2" below the shell rim edge.
