      Moongel Dampening Gels effectively control unwanted overtones.

      RTOM Moongel Dampening Gels effectively control unwanted drum overtones. Designed to be versatile tone modifiers, self-adhesive Moongels stick to the surface of your drums, cymbals, and most percussion instruments. The possibilities are endless.

      By simply moving the damper pad around the percussive surface, you'll eliminate any unwanted resonance and obtain the exact sound the situation demands.

      Moongel damper pads are washable and retain their stickiness for years of service. Use them over and over again. Moongel Damper Pads are made from a soft non-toxic gel, and come in a 6-pack plastic canister.

      Not totally happy

      These things were stuck together so bad that they started to tear! Almost had to throw them away! It might have just been a bad batch. They do work though.

      I have drumming experience from 1981. Muffling inside drums a waste of time. Richie rings work good if you want to muffle drums to an extreme. Foam and tape outside or inside make drums look messy. What I do not like about richie things if you do not tape them down they fly off the drums. Moongels stay put!!! Muffling and sound of drum is perfect. Guess what you can also muffle cymbals to. Perfect for ride cymbals.
      Works with all drums. Makes drum sound fantastic.
      Simple durability, last forever until you use it.
      Anything under $10.00 is an investment.

                    Started with tape decades ago. Switched to Eq rings and used those for years. Bought these after one of my drummers swore by them. I don't think that they're quite as dampening as Eq rings, but I do really like the sound. They allow you to keep the brilliance of the drum without the thud that you can get from alternatives.

                        I was skeptical that these would work on my self-built taiko drum that has a funny ring to it. It took all six gels to have an effect on the 21" cowhide skin, but once I had all of them on they definitely helped. Out of curiosity, I recorded some loud strikes with and without the gels, and the waveforms with the gels are distinctly cleaner.

                            A total waste of money for six plastic gels that couldn't be separated without tearing them apart. I wish I had read these reviews before I spent the money.

                                      I am using the moongel to dampen vibrations so that a camera remains steady despite high frequency vibrations from the surface to which it is mounted. I have been amazed at the success I have had.

                                        As indicated above, Moon gels are the way to go for dampening drum ring. I have only one issue, and that is when the product is ordered it would be best to do so during the cooler season of the year. I have found that extreme temperatures cause the gels to "melt" together and they are extremely hard to separate easily and apply to drums once that happens. That aside, its a great product.
