    Default Best Way to Dampen a Ludwig Supra

    I love this snare.. have had for 50 years.
    It rings out too much and I am tired of moongel..
    Any suggestions as to what I can use.

    Is there any disadvantage to using the internal muffler against the batter head.
    Would this impact responsiveness

    Thanks

    Use a dampening ring, or if you have a spare drum head, make one yourself from that.

    Use a different head. I don't know if you are a Remo or Evans guy (maybe Aquarian, who knows), but Evans has a few "dry" snare heads that control the overtones well, or using a PCRD style head removes pretty much all the ring on a direct center hit, but lets the drum have some ring on rim shots and off-center hits.

    Using the internal muffler won't change the feel of the head.
