          I can't say I am exactly a hard hitter, and I use a single ply head on my kick. I use a 20x22 and it sounds incredible. Some complain about how it can completely dead the sound, and if that is a concern of yours, make sure your resonant head is tuned properly, because you can still achieve amazing overtones and still dampen your batter. Great sound, I would recommend to anybody.

          I gave this a try with a 14" floor tom in mind. The muffler installs UNDER the drum head. The muffler barely fit my 14" floor, but I managed to install it. I tuned it up and it sounded horrible. I just wanted a little muffling... this instead gives you the dreaded early 70's 100% zero ring sound.

          The dampening was so severe. Not at all what I wanted, so I removed it. Unfortunately, when I put my head back on I noticed that my head had been deformed and no longer could tune up.

          SUMMARY: this item went straight to the trash can. It ruined a relatively new 14" head, so it cost me twice the amount I wanted to invest for the sake of experimentation on muffling.

          PROs: There's only one use I can see for this type of muffler: on the batter head of a kick drum to capture a ROCK-sounding kick.

              Comments about Remo Muff L Ring Control:

              Given the vast variety of opinions of where and how to use these, I'll simply state what I've used the product for and how it worked for me. I have a standing gig in a VERY small venue for which I assembled a "jungle kit" consisting of 12x5 snare, a HH, and a floor tom converted to a bass drum. When struck with the beater, the drum rang like a gong. This product made it sound more like a bass drum. The resonant head still rings a little, and I may get another for it. The venue is VERY small, and I can only play with brushes or hot rods. for making a floor tom sound like a bass drum, the product works.

              Comments about Remo Muff L Ring Control:

              Put these in place over the rim, under the head. Small amount of foam can be removed if needed. Plastic ring can be cut if rim is slightly too large. Gives more "thump" to the toms in a very even way, still easy to tune the drum. Beats self-stick foam that sometimes falls off in the drum.

              Comments about Remo Muff L Ring Control:

              I decided to try this on my 24" Rogers big R kick, which I recently installed a fantastic Remo Powerstroke 3 on, and while it delivers superior muffling evenly around the entire head at once, I have some complaints. First, you need to take off the head every time you want to tinker with it, which can be time consuming. Second, this device does not work well on kick batter heads that have built in muffling on the backside of the head, like the Aquarian Superkick series heads. The muffling strip will slip off immediately. I recommend that you use this with single play, non muffled heads like the powerstroke 3, it IS a remo muffling device, so it was kind of MADE for the powerstroke 3.
              I tried this on my kick's resonant head, and it totally deadened the sound and made the batter feel like it was made of cardboard. DO NOT PUT ON RESONANT HEAD!

                      I have a gretsch catalina jazz kit with evans G1 heads and I bought the 12" and 14" for my toms and it did exactly as i wanted for both. I did have to remove the foam from the 12" as to balance the amount of muffle on the smaller drum. After reading the negative reviews I would have to say the effectiveness of these rings depends on what shells as well as drum heads and size of the drums used. It seems the bigger the drum the better sound. But they are a lot more convenient being attached and hidden rather than remo-o rings or moon gels.

                          These are a must for a bass drum. I have been using them for years. Gets rid of the ringy overtones and adds a little more low thud. They are ok for toms but will kill the pitch, I recommend the dead ringers that just lay flat on the heads if you have ringy toms.
                          My only two complaints are; the foam falls out with heavy use when mounted on the bass, easily remedied with a little double stick tape or light glueing.
                          Number two: the plastic ring will break from over tightening the bass hoop but it usually takes at least a year or more.

                          My drums sounded like expensie tin cans with these on. I took them off and threw them away.
                          On a side note, they work pretty good on my bass drum.

                          These rings. Oh my these rings. I just want to rave about them for days. Although these say they are produced by Remo, they are really created by god himself. God has his little Remo Muff L Ring Control workshop and he builds these just so he can show his love to us drummers.

                          If you like Punchy, Bassy, overtone-less, studio sounding drums, then these are for you.
                          ....
                          Even if you don't want that, buy them anyway because you must not know what amazing drums sound like(;
                          I've been playing drums for 3 years and have been looking for a solution to the bad overtones coming out of my off-brand drum kit. A friend showed me these rings and I played a bit on his kit (which he had the Remo Muffle Rings on each of his toms) and I was amazed at the sound coming from his (he has an off-brand kit as well) drums! It sounded more like a studio kit than anything. I ended up buying these for my 13" tom and 16" floor tom and I'm basically in tears - they sound so good!! You would never guess my kit was an off brand kit from listening to these toms - Punchy, Bassy, and with no added overtones. These rings are highly recommended - I can assure you that if you buy these there is no way you can be disappointed! They're magic!
                          As many others have said, the plastic ring is a little bit shady but they should hold up seeing as how they are under your drum head and surrounded by foam so there is little to no chance of them breaking. And if they do, they're dirt cheap so just buy another one! hahah

                          These rings are from god.
                          This goes without saying, but they are such a good deal! These Remo Rings make your kit sound amazing and it's the easiest thing to install ever and if you have clear drum heads they look siiickkk!

                          They sound great. Just need to fix the problem with the kick
                          Makes the drums I have put these on sound great
                          Not sure how long these will last, the tray seems like it may not last too long...BUT, I have had no problems with that yet. The only problem I have had with this is the one I put in my bass. The foam comes out of the tray. No problem with the one I put in the floor tom. Guessing because the floor tom lays flat and the bass is vertical. I will be ordering more for the toms to see how they work all the way around, but probably won't be buying anymore for the bass if the problem doesn't correct somehow
                          I like the cheap price. Wouldn't pay a ton for these due to the cheaper plastic tray
