OVERVIEW

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 bought the Moon Gels to help the sound of the heads, but iv'e been reading more about drum heads and tuning. If you have the right heads and take time to tune your heads i found out i really don't need the moon gels. I could see using them if you could'nt get that sound your looking for. I just did some studying and the heads and proper tuning does the trick. If you don't have the money to spend on good heads the moon gel should help.

      Comments about RTOM Moongel Percussion Dampening Gels:

      A good dampening option. Drums are tuned for a room, and what works great in your practice space may ring a bit much in a place you actually play. These can help. Will also dry up a washy ride. I don't love these things, but if you need them, I haven't found anything else that works better.

          I didn't expect them to work as well as they do.. the keep all the great sound of the drum and take away the ring and sustain for a great, tight sound. plus they're blue and gelly and they look fun.

              Comments about RTOM Moongel Percussion Dampening Gels:

              I've been playing drumset for about a year and a half (started learning at 42, so progress has been kinda slow) and it's been a case of not knowing what I didn't know. Right now I'm learning about tuning and getting different sounds out of different parts of the kit. I bought the moongel to play around with dampening the sound of my steel snare ... but I'm having most fun using it on a Zildjian 15" ride that I bought used and has as much sustain as a Tibetan bell. Sometimes I don't want it to ring for five minutes (slight exaggeration) ... the gel both greatly shortens the duration of the note and I can get different sounds depending on where I place the piece(s) of gel.

                  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.

                  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.

                  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.
