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.

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 )

                            Made of pot metal. Very poor quality. There's no way I will drill holes in my snare to install this.
