      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.

          Comments about RTOM Moongel Percussion Dampening Gels:

          I haven't played on an acoustic kit in 10+ years (was using a high-end Roland electronic kit). Decided I wanted my daughter to learn on a real drum set. Doing some other product research, read about moongels and decided to take a shot. Amazing product that I had never heard of before. Very versitile damping based upon where you place the moongel. Doesn't excuse you from tuning your drums, of course.

          Comments about RTOM Moongel Percussion Dampening Gels:

          Works great, and does its job. It will kill the overtone rings and dampen just right. You must be patient when it comes to pulling the pieces apart. They will come apart you just have to take your time to separate the sticky product. Once you have done that the rest is great.

          Comments about RTOM Moongel Percussion Dampening Gels:

          I don't like using tape or any other product to diminish overtones. Trying to reduce overtones can go bad in a hurry. However, you can cut Moongel anyway you want and place them around the head anywhere you want. You can even dampen cymbals if you want (But, I never have). When the get dusty, you can wash them with soap and water and reuse. Sometimes they get a little stretched out and less effective, but I just use two gels, each cut in half, placed at north, south, east, and west on the head, and it perfectly takes away the unwanted overtone and still allows the drum to sing.

                          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.
