    Comments about Pearl Clip-On External Drum Muffler:

    If you're not adjusting your batter head resonance as per what each song calls for, you're missing an opportunity to control nuance that makes a big difference. I started playing in the '80s, when all decent snares came with one of these mounted on the inside. When playing a snare without one, I'd place my wallet on top of the batter head, away from the playing area, but it would eventually creep it's way down and I'd have to push it out of the way for the duration of the gig and, of course, it'd take a flying leap off the drum from when things got crazy. I used moon gels for a while but those darn things get nasty after attracting stick shreds and dust for a few weeks -- not ideal if you're on the road. They end up in the bottoms of your cases or you have to deal with the extra steps of removing and replacing them for each gig. I swore off moon gels after one stained an outer tom shell on my Gretsch Renown 57 kit -- it ended up there during road handling and must've gotten too hot in the band trailer :( I tend to use dampening rings on my toms now but I don't like using them for my snare because I'm too finicky when it comes to tone -- I end up with about three different-sized rings that I switch between rockers, ballads and train beat songs and eventually they get literally bent out of shape from all the handling and then they buzz or just don't work right. This Pearl exterior muffle is my solution. It's easy to mount and easy to adjust quickly in-between songs. It allows you to muffle a lot, a little or not at all just by turning the top wingnut a few times. Why didn't I get one of these sooner?!

    Comments about Pearl Clip-On External Drum Muffler:

    Easy to install. Provides excellent tone control. My Ludwig kick drum skin is set too deep for this muffler to reach and I had to "shim" it with some cymbal felts. All in all a great product albeit a little pricey.

    Clip-On and Ludwigs

    By James Evans

    The design of the external mufflers allow them to fit nicely on my Ludwigs, They are snug and secure and do not interfere with playing at all.
    They are made pretty sturdy and look as if they were made to be part of the kit.
    As always, one never is completely satisfied with the price, but over all, they are a good product. I think a little less would be a better price though.

    Finicky Fit but Decent Design

    By Sierra584

    from Middletown, OH

    Comments about Pearl Clip-On External Drum Muffler:

    I sympathize with an earlier revewer's lament that he had to take a file to his Pearl Clip-On External Drum Mufflers to get them to fit his rims. Maybe they'll fit perfectrly on Pearl drums but on my Sound Percussion 4-piece set, it was nuthin' doin'. On the other hand, the very fact that it took me most of the afternoon to file barely one millimeter off of three of these units is a testament to the sound metalurgy of the product. Once I got them to fit, they performed as advertised, and I don't think I'd ever own another acoustic drum kit without a set of these to go with it --- and a file.

    Comments about Pearl Clip-On External Drum Muffler:

    INTERNAL muffler systems push upward on the head from inside constantly, thus causing distortion of sound. This type of EXternal muffler allows the batter head freedom of movement downward (upon stick impact) withOUT restriction or distortion. As the head relaxes upward after impact, the ring/tone is THEN dampened. It's pure Physics, and that's why these work better.

    Its Okay

    By DrummerEternal

    from Chicopee, MA

    Comments about Pearl Clip-On External Drum Muffler:

    It works well and gets the job done. My only complaint is that it was not compatable with my pulse set, I had to file the inner part of the clip to get it to fit on my snare, besides that its pretty good.
