    More importantly, why would you want to muffle your snare drum?!?!

      well some people cant stand all that annoying ring, not matter how good u tune it, it doesnt go away. thus muffling comes into effect heh. i feel like to O rings muffle my snare to much, maybe these new muffler things might be the trick

          I usually find a single peice of Moongel does the trick.

            I agree with Flipkid....let the real character of the drum show. Cursed be those who muffle snares, especially DW Engraved Brass snares (eh PSX?)

              Hehe. Actually (and you're going to kill me for this) I used to have an Evans HD Dry with a piece of Moongel on the brass, but then I opened it up with a G1. I'm really looking into putting a Fybreskyn 3 on it. Man, that'd be sweet. I still don't want total ring though, it's just not what I like to hear in a snare. To each his own.

                      Moon Gels

                      Slipknot is right........... Moon Gels rule.

                      I actually cut mine in half and 1/4 'cause I really don't muffle my drums all that much.

                      1/4 Gel sort of EQ's the toms cutting some of the overtones without cutting the volume.

                      You have total INSTANT control with a Moon Gel.

                        I have a really ringy Yamaha steel snare that rang like crazy. I tried an Evans ST Dry head head--NG. I tried Moongel, but it didn't really seem to work, unless I had three pieces on the head. Then I tried an Aquarian Studio Ring, and the problem cleared right up--without killing the drum.

                        I agree about the Fiberskyn idea, and was thinking about it, but the Studio Ring works so well, I'm happy with my coated Ambassador.

                            iscarr,

                            BillyHydes Music here in Melbourne sells moongel. I'm sure BillyHydes Music Sydney would have some too. If they don't ask them to bring a pack or two up from Melbbourne. I've gotten things brought down from Sydney which they did not have in Melbourne, so it's do-able from BillyHydes.

                            They have very high standards in customer service.

                              in regards to the mufling thing that evans have brought out... i think it works similar to what Dave Weckle is using. The way it works is that it kinda bobs up and down when the head is hit.

                              try this with your finger.. put your finger close to the rim of the snare, then strike the head-lifting your finger just when the stick hits the head - then drop your finger down on the head again. it controls the ring and overtones without killing it completely. Dave Weckle showed his 'prototype' muffling thing in one of his videos... you guys may have seen it.
