These are the coolest things I have ever heard on top of a drum head. I have to say that it is actually ridicules. It is amazing how much they dampen the tone of any drum. Even the best drum tunners could use these for help. I am a live audio engineer and everytime I see people with these it makes my life easier, I don't have to fight with the ringing of the drum heads. HIGHLY RECOMENDED!!!!

Bought three packs of the Moongels to use on a large set of Pearl Masters. The product does not stick well and in the middle of the first set the darn things were coming loose and bouncing around the toms. During the break we replaced them with bubble wrap and strips of duct tape to get through the next set. A much better product is Gibralter's Drum Tuning Pads.

Moongels

By myfriendisrelatedtolespaul

from Wisconsin

Comments about RTOM Moongel Percussion Dampening Gels:

I have used these moongels for about six months now. They provide good dampening, especially for my snare. After tuning my snare I had bad overtones, and I threw a moongel on, and they disappeared. I have heard some people say that they can ruin a drumhead, but I have not had that happen to me at all. I am very satisfied with this product.

Great for all music!!!!

By SlipKnoTMaggot

from Spencer, MA

Comments about RTOM Moongel Percussion Dampening Gels:

These things all around look better than using ducktape, they work better, and just sound way better. And you can make work for any style of music. I like to play alot of metal and death and the way i have it set up it sounds like Joey Jordisons' drums. If you havent bought these already buy them now.

Really does the job!

By Brian Schnee

from Burlington, CT

Comments about RTOM Moongel Percussion Dampening Gels:

I saw these advertised in a drum magazine and bought a set for 7 dollars. They really do cut down the overtone and I use them on my kit everyday. One of my best investments on my kit of all time!

Moongels Rock

By Jen Roberts

from Little Rock, AR

Comments about RTOM Moongel Percussion Dampening Gels:

I am so grateful to the other reviewers who said this product was worth it. I can't believe how cheap they are! They worked really well on my cheap, loud, ringing snare. Two moongels and it's great. Two on my floor tom also works great. I've only just put them on, so I've never cleaned them or anything, but so far they are the best thing ever. I'm about to order more!

I'm a believer

By Chris

from Midland, Texas

Comments about RTOM Moongel Percussion Dampening Gels:

I just bought a pack of the moongels this weekend after trying many unsuccesful ways of getting the overtones of my copper snare to stop. I put one of the moongels on and was amazed at the sound of my snare. ALL the overstones were gone. The moongels completely changed how my snare sounds! They are so easy to use and require no work, just take on out the container and place it on the outer edge of your snare and play!! Buy moongels, they will help you create the sound you want out of your drums!!

It's DAMPING, not Dampening. Dampening means to make wet.

    Been Using Them for Years

    By Robert

    from Philadelphia, PA

    Site Member

    Comments about RTOM Moongel Percussion Dampening Gels:

    I just bought my second set. The first one lasted 14 years. I don't know who said they ruin drum heads, but my heads get used regularly and they are the originals 15 years old. No problems. I won;t go into the other benefits of Moon Gels, I think that is well covered in other reviews. Suffice it to say they make a big improvement in the sound of my Pearl Export drums and my Pearl Roadshow Jazz set.

    Moon Gels out of this world !!

    By Drumgeek

    from Ohio

    Comments about RTOM Moongel Percussion Dampening Gels:

    Have used these for a couple of years now and have no need or desire for further dampening products. Mylar rings buzz and are not practical for toms due to their angle, as you must tape them on. Any foam ring chokes the head and greatly diminishes the tonality of the drum. The gels have a tacky surface that adheres lightly, but confidently to the head. They move WITH the head - the weight and placement interferes just enough with the head vibration to cut out unwanted ring/ overtones. Another added bonus is portablity. I can take these with me and apply to whatever drums are provided to me and can usually tune them nicely. They leave no residue short-term, and studio engineers will love you for them! They will also dry out an exceptionally bright ride cymbal. I bring about 15 or so to every gig - a must have for me !!

    Amazing!!!

    By Brandon

    from Chesaning, M.I.

    Comments about RTOM Moongel Percussion Dampening Gels:

    I've been using this product for almost a year now, and they are great for getting the perfect dampening you want for your drums, also the price is very easy on your wallet so no conserne there. The Moon gels are excellent at keeping there grip to the drum even with heavy playing, but even if they do start to lose some of there stick all you have to do is wash it with warm water and soap, and it's as good as new. The only bad thing about Moon gels is that they are not the greatest for dampening your bass, so for that I would recomend the "Evans EMAD Clear Batter Head" because it has different muffling rings for your prefrance, and it sounds nice to. Overall the Rtom Moon Gel is a great product, and a must need for any drumer

    RTOM Moon Gels

    By SABINO LAGATTOLLA _

    from Hudson, MA

    Comments about RTOM Moongel Percussion Dampening Gels:

    Simply put, these get the job done. Remove unwanted over tones. The price cannot be beat. They take up no room at all on your drum head, and aren't ugly, like tape. They are washable, so that, if you've used them for 6 months, and they get dirty, they're now clean and like new. This is my dampener of choice. There's nothing better. People have asked me what they are and what they do. I have them listen to 1 drum without them on, then with them on, and there's no other explaining needed.

    Don't waste your money! Zero stars was no an option.

    By Tamara

    from PA

    Comments about RTOM Moongel Percussion Dampening Gels:

    This is a terrible product. Try the Gibraltar tuning dots instead. This product is expensive in comparison and has a number of issues. First they do no stay on the drum during aggressive playing. Because they are the consistency of a flattened out gummy bear, they stick to every thing.(Except drum heads.) They collect dust and leave a sticky residue on the drum head. I prefer the Gibraltar tuning dots because they stay put. They can also be cut with scissors to fine tune the amount of dampening you desire. In addition they have a peel off one sided adhesive that doesn't get all over the head. There is noting worse than a loose Moongel bouncing around during a gig or the change in tone mid tune.

      from Palmdale

      Comments about RTOM Moongel Percussion Dampening Gels:

      i have a gretsch drumkit and a ludwig snare, a moonjel on each took away all of the ringing and gave it a perfect amount of dampening (at least where i place them). my drums sound incredible and im going to experiment with the bass drum next. HIGHLY RECCOMENDED.

      BEST DAMPENERS OUT THERE!

      By marinecorpsdrummerboy1

      from Niantic, CT

      Comments about RTOM Moongel Percussion Dampening Gels:

      Do you want overtone control get these! If your one of those drummers that like NO OVERTONE whatsoever to come out of your drums, but still don't want to choke your drum (like me), then here's what I do: Use one moongel piece on the top head, and one moongel piece on the bottom. But you have to tape the one on the bottom head in order for it to stay on the head. If you do so and make a few tuning adjustments, you'll get your drums to sound like Scott Phillips from Alter Bridge. Warm, Dark, and no overtone at all without choking the drums. GREAT Overall!

      No more cloth, duct tape, or loose rings needed

      By Mike D.

      from Wisconsin

      Comments about RTOM Moongel Percussion Dampening Gels:

      These things work. They are inexpensive, and easy to keep in the case they come in. In a second you can add one, two, three; whatever you need. Placing them in different areas of the drum head edge can give different results, and it's simply a matter of taking one off and putting it back down where you want it. Easy on and off but they will stay where you put them. Very clever - very effective.
