Controls the amount of ring and resonance of every drum in your kit (except bass drums) with amazing precision. It quickly adjusts for loud or soft playing. Uses a nonrestrictive, free-floating, top-mounted plunger that opens on stick impact. A fully adjustable stroke control allows you to dial in the amount of desired decay in milliseconds. The device adjusts to any size or style counterhoop (excluding bass drums) and is effective in all playing situations.

This product has a thin metal pin that slides vertically through a plastic cylinder. At the end of this metal pin is the plunger, the circular piece with a soft end that contacts the drum head.This plunger does not have a soft face, so it makes a noise everytime it bounces onto the head (which due to the design of this product, is every time you hit the drum). But the worst is the vertical metal pin has nothing between it and the plastic. For this pin to slide up and down the pin chamber must be wider than the pin itself, so the pin can shift (not much) horizontally within the plastic chamber. This creates a very loud buzzing sound when you hit the head.I would absolutely not recommend this product. It is a waste of your money.

Honestly, this thing sucks!

By JL-CaGk6

from Way, CA

I bought this thing just to try it out. It rattles like crazy, but other than that I can't hear much of a difference! The rubber O-rings ("millisecond adjustment")really don't make any difference. It either needs to be totally redesigned or thrown out all together. As is, it's not worth the price of shipping. Sorry to have to be so brutally honest guys.

Dampening? Not here

By majestyx

from Pottsville, PA

See all my reviews

How much did they pay Dave Weckl to put his name on this? While it seems to be a good idea, it doesn't do a thing other than make black marks on your snare head due to the cheap rubber on the "dampener," and rattle on the head. The O-rings don't stay in place, even if this thing did work as advertised. The thing practically falls apart when you try to tighten it. Masking-tape the dollars you were going to pay for this thing to your snare head to get better dampening. Having bought it here, I feel justified in giving a rating of AVOID.

not useful

By wcarbona

from South Bend, IN

I noticed no difference in the sound of my snare drum when using this product. In fact, I tried it on several different snares and it still did not dampen the overtones of the unmuffled drum, or in any way change the sound of the drum. I thought this product was utterly useless.

70's drums

By Cool Guy

from nj

I was looking at dampening things and I came to this. My dads x drummer way back in the 70's gave me these drums from back then. They have basically the same thing except built in to the inside of the drum. Those were really cool and worked great. I sense that since you are clamping it to the rim itlll buzz a lot. dont judge my ratings I just felt like adding that never used this product at all.

Dampener? yeah right....

By Brett-a2IRG

from Atlanta

Well I bought this so that I could hopefully dampen the resonance of my floor tom. The dampener clmaps to the hoop around the drum head and works great, but the actual dampener is worthless. Absolutely no pressure is applied to the drumhead because the rings meant to hold the dampener with pressure on the head simply slide off. When the tom is hit, all the "dampener" does is vibrate with the movement of the drum head. DO NOT buy this product.

Remo Dave Weckl Active Drum Dampening System

By Ryan-8.jnq

from Chesapeake, VA

I don't quite understand why this product is still sold. I bought one to dampen my snare drum. I followed all the directions that it called for and when i played the snare, the plunger on the dampener bounced up and down, rather than dampening like it was supposed to. I returned it and got something in return, but i can only hope people choose to try the emad or anything else other than this product, because it is a waste of money.

Useless

By Andy-OPfWY

from San Francisco, CA

Have to agree with everyone, I bought this a few years ago. Never found a use for it, didn't really change the sound of my snare at all. It was flimsily made. Then I lost part of it, and I was glad.
