I typically don't use any extra dampening, unless it's a piece of duct tape on the snare

how does the duct tape work 4 u?

Works great. I've never used anything else (except maxi-pads). It's cheap, it stays where I put it, I can easily control how much of it I use and place it exactly where I want it on the drum. I never liked the o-ring style things. I felt like they dampen the drum too much, and I can't control them; they are what they are. I would rather use something I have more control over.

is the duct tape like a one time thing, like once u put it on, that's where it will stay?

It depends. If I like the way it sounds, there's no need to change it. But it's easy to take off if I need to.
If you need something easier to remove you could always do what Ringo used to do: take out your wallet and put it on the drum :)

They're fine, duct tape is just cheaper and easier for me. I can always find a roll laying around somewhere. Moongels also lose their "gel" after a while and no longer stay where you want them to. At least that was the experience I had with them.

What do you mean?

fenderboss7 05-03-2011 06:09 PM

like what u said about the o rings...........no control or something

jamforchrist123 05-03-2011 09:26 PM

I think what he means is that O-Rings are an all-or-nothing fix. You either like it and use the ring for how much dampening it gives you, or you don't like it and don't use it. With duct tape you can control exactly how much overtone reduction you have, and where on the head it goes. With the O-Ring you have no control.

For me the O-Rings work great, but for some they don't. I personally don't like putting tape on my heads, but it's all just different opinions.
