    Evans E-Rings do precisely what they claim; to rid your drums whether it be a snare or tom, of unwanted sustain and overtones. I have a Mapex Pro-M Maple Studio double bass kit that sounds awsome, but the sustain and overtone is too much. Yes I've tried various tuning, and have bought and tried many different ressonant and batter heads claiming to cure the problem...trust me, don't waiste any money! Heres what to do! Stay with your loyal brand of heads, Buy some E-Rings, and tune your heads this way, if you want your kit to sound totally awsome!! Step#1. Tune each drum to its "sweetspot". This is where you'll hear the fullest tonal pitch and sustain. Generally both top and bottom heads will be at the same tension. I use a Drum-Dial for this, and usually wind up at around 75. When you have all your toms sounding their fullest and in good pitch with each other, go to step 2.Step#2. Drop an E-Ring on each drum, play each drum to focus on the characteristic of the sound. You'll notice a true deadning effect and also a big drop in tonal quallity...don't freak out!, this is where everyone goes wrong. This next step is a secret I'm about to bless all of you with, and I've got around 50 hrs perfecting it! Ok, the final step.Step#3.This step will separate the men from the boys! Now that all the E-Rings are in place, and your almost happy, start increasing the tension on the lug screws on the batter head only, about a 1/16th of a turn, and do so in a tuning sequence. Lightly tap the head with a stick and listen for the nice tonal quallity to come back. Keep tightening ever so gently until you hear your drum sound like a $10,000 drum that is miked and gated through a studio mixer!!! When using any kind of drum head muting device, remember this... anything touching a drumhead changes the harmonic frequency within the head itself, so you have to compensate by changing the tension to bring back the frequency desired, but at a muted level. The bottom line is this...YES, you DO have to tune your drums with the E-Rings on, but in proper sequence! Enjoy your E-Rings, Quallity Sound, and my secret.

    I got these when I replaced my stock heads. They make your drums sound great......if you're just practicing on your own. If you plan to record your drums, I would take them off. They make your drums sound too dead when you record them.If you have bad overtones or whatever, you should just use a little tape. But again, if you are just practicing, they are great.

              Comments about Evans E-Rings Pack:

              i have used these rings for many many years to control unmanageable overtones, fatten up my drum sounds, and control excess drum volumes that usually occur in small to very small venues...my favorite rock-a-billy drum set was recovered from the trash years ago. i pealed and redid the shells and flamed em' in hot orange with chartreuse flames...the bottom hoops were missing on all of the drums except the floor tom which i converted to a kick drum...the overall set tone without the rings was and is fairly nasty...but with the addition of the tone rings i get a very phat, full, even ...great sound....to my ears anyway..
              .in the smaller venues using double rings i stick down and am able to play with as much intensity as i need without pissing bar patrons etc off..all in all i believe these would a great addition to any drummers arsenal, they afford me tonal control, and a nice clean full sound on a very marginal drum set...and they are very easy to use...unlike tape, washcloths, moleskin, moon gel etc....
              i - like most drummers have a certain drum sound in my head that i seek to achieve...these rings bring that sound closer to my minds ear.....

              Comments about Evans E-Rings Pack:

              I have used Evans E-Rings for many years, and STILL have my first set from 2006...Like I said before they can crease if you're not careful with their storage.
              My extended pros list:
              1. Came quickly, arrived in a box, inside being a undamaged sleeve bag with the Evans seal. Immediately after arrival I checked the fit, spot on. Always check the fit!

              2. Provide a great dampening effect, and they have the potential to positively transform the sound of your Evans-equipped drums. For those looking for that certain tom sound, or even those who seek dampening for their snare >.>

              3. Believe me, these things will last you a good while, if not mistreated..

                  They do just what you'd hope they do...stop your heads from ringing!..I previously used duct tape on
                  all my heads, which did the job, but looked pretty cheesy. Put these on, apply a small amount of clear tape to keep them from going anywhere (if you want )

                    These things have been around for a while, but I tried them only recently. No more duct tape on the head, internal or external mufflers (except on snare). Big difference in quality of sound.

                    Comments about Evans E-Rings Pack:

                    A lot of drummers give these a bad rap. It's true, the Erings do reduce your volume, but not enough to really cause problems. These rings are legendary for studio work, or even if you're playing a gig and your drums have mics. As long as your drums are moderately tuned, these take away all over tones and give your drums sharp attack.

                    Playing live without mics on your kit (small venue) I'd reccomend Moon Gels by Rtom, because these do take away volume.

                    I've been using Erings and the Moon Gels for years, and and they really have no negative impact on drumming.

                      Comments about Evans E-Rings Pack:

                      They stop the "ring" and emphasize the bass tones which really comes in handy in club and fusion kits with smaller drums. I play small venues with hot rod's a lot and occasionally I can manage to flip a ring off with the brush tip. A little adhesive would anchor them. They fit the drum sizes perfectly.

                      Sound good, slightly too big!

                      Comments about Evans E-Rings Pack:

                      They do the job, sizing seems weird, but a bit bigger is better than a bit too small...
                      They do what they're supposed to do, and don't jump around or buzz like some rings can.
                      Rings are well made, but were too big for my cheap Ashton kit, and my Tama Superstar! Took at them with scissors and sliced about 1/2 a millimeter all the way round, fit perfectly now.
