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.

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

        For a fraction of the cost of other internal mufflers. this product rock's. Ace can fix you up for mounting screw and washers. Then just measure twice and drill once, and you can at the turn of the dial. Take the ring out of your drum if in a small place playing.Or recording.And do not have to have gels or tone rings to carry along. Thats a plus in my book!

          These mufflers work well.My only gripe is that there are no instructions about how far down the drum shell to mount them.But since drums vary maybe its just me.The provided 1/2" mounting screw was to short.Had to go to Ace and get some 3/4" they worked perfectly. My suggestion is take the muffler and make a template out of cardboard. That helped me get the position right. After installing this product the ringing that I had before installation was greatly reduced.Im happy.

          Snare drums used to come with mufflers (back in the 50's-60's). Well, now there are more choices of heads that didn't exist back then. A muffler can adjust the amount of ring to your drum and can also eliminate it for that drier sound. I like the adjustibility without having to apply tape on the head. It's east to install, but this product doesn't come with instructions. I definately recommend using a muffler for that custom snare sound. This may just be the product you're looking for to get the snare sound you want. I definitely recommend these!
