Customer Reviews

love it....So, this is my first official product review on amazon... I think this thing is awesome. we live in a 2 br apt. This works as advertised. Reduces the loudness/feeling of the "thump" from the bass drum pretty significantly without compromising the "sound" of the thump. Don't get me wrong, the bass drum is still felt and heard and is still pretty loud... just at a fairly reduced level. If i were sitting in the living room, the drumset is in an adjacent bedroom. When played, its felt and heard, but I can still watch tv... turned up mind you... to my ears, the sound coming from the bass drum still sounds, well, like a bass drum... waaayyyy better sound reproduction than any drum mute for the snare, toms, and especially the cymbals when practiced/played together.As for longevity... my 9 yr old is the one that uses it on her Premier drumset (which is super awesome and I'll eventually review that set bought from here). Now she obviously does not have have a lead foot, so I'm pretty sure this will stand up for a long time. Now when I play her set, I consciously try not to smash the bass drum pedal... if a heavy footed person were to use this, I can see this product not lasting that long... for my daughter, it works great. I'm sure the neighbors appreciate her using it than her not using one.As for the striking of the pad with the beater feeling... you definitely know your hitting something other than the drum head. Doesn't bother me... doesn't bother my daughter. .. we don't really notice at all... she could still play fairly fast with a single pedal... can she play faster without the pad? Possibly... haven't realll tried to test that out... shes not playing death metal or anything like that, so not a huge issue here, anyways. will it bother some... I'm sure there are purist who will not like the feel of it... it all comes down to which of the lesser of the 2 evils one can live with. We think it's an easy trade off...Installation is easy and straight forward. Unpacking, installing, to playing took probably at the most 5 min... adjusting it to absolute perfect placement took maybe another couple minutes... simple and easy. .. how can you not like that...If this thing broke down, I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again if I still lived in an apt.So again, reduces overall sound without compromising the actual "sound". My daughter can still easily be felt /heard laying down the backbeat with my other daughter playing along with her bass... which means the bass guitar amp volume can be turned down as well. There are other bass drum mutes that work equally well if not better... however, my daughter's bass drum is only 16" in diameter... this product is the only player in town... unless one modifies a different drum mute for a 16 " tom and modifies it to for a 16" bass drum.I love this thing... originally my daughter was using a roland electronic drumset with mesh heads at my apt and an acoustic set at her mom's. Obvioulsy the roland was waaaaaayyyyyy quieter. As much as i loved the electronic kit, When she started telling her music teacher that she preferred the electronic set "feel", I said enough of that and bought the Premier APK microbop set to keep her on the "acoustic" path. And this product at least helps to try to quiet it down...So buy it if you have a light foot for your or for the kids... if you're heavy footed... this may not last... for us, it works great... YMMV... have a great day...5Does the jobThis mute keeps the bass from being overbearing. You can still hear the beat but it's softer. They neighbors don't hear it and it doesn't aggravate the rest of the family when played. I saw a review that said something about the foam falling apart. If you FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS, they tell you exactly how to avoid this problem. This product is sturdy, easy to install, and more than meets my expectations. I also like that it doesn't damage the drum and I didn't have to use tape or velcro to keep it on. The clamps have rubber stoppers/pads and the whole device is just great.5It's ok, but not durable enoughAfter just a short time of playing, the surface that mates up with the beater degraded so that the beater actually sinks in to the foam behind the batter surface. You then have to adjust the position of the muffler either left or right to avoid the hole from the beater. Not worth the $, by a long shot.1Well, that's one way to quiet those pesky cymbals down.They work. Plain and simple.We have 14" hi hats and these hang over quite a bit. That's not the mute's fault. Maybe I missed a hi hat version.Now, muting aside, they make the cymbals sound horrible, but sounding good isn't what people like us have in mind when we're buying these, am i right? A little more peace of mind is found when we buy these and they do exactly as the description claims. Is it quite 80%? There's really no way to measure it, but it's good enough for me to rate both these and the drum mutes at 5 stars, which is something I don't do a ton of.For the record, the drum mutes are awesome. Just make sure you buy the right ones for your kit. There's a different between the standard and the fusion sets.5does the jobI had been using the vic firth version of these for a couple of years but tried these out for two reason: amazon doesn't carry the 14" vic firth mute separate, and it's cheaper (usually) than the vic firth mute. However, after only about 6 weeks of use I can already see the rubber starting the flake. This is faster wear than I ever had with the vic firth. I also play with nylon tips when using these to try and keep the wear to a minimum. Anyways, they do the job but I don't think they last as long as the vic firth version, but it may be a wash being they're a few dollars cheaper. No worries, flip it over and you'll have a whole new side to play on. Hope this helps.4Works but not what you d think.While I don t have a straight complaint. First this mute is a neoprene pad not your usually rubber pad. That being the case it doesn t have the same play response . It causes your sticks to bounce more than may be desired. Granted overall it does work in general. Again nothing wrong but feel it could have been better and more forward in its design materials. For the price not a bad deal, it will tone down Bobby s banging on the skins.3Great for snares as well as toms (see review)Good product, It works as advertised. I will say, when used as a tom mute, you do cut down practically all of the tone that your drum has. It DOES however still retain a fair amount of bottom end "thud". This does not necessarily mean that your kit will retain normal volume, but it is something to consider....but If you are looking for a "silent" practice experience, you are fooling yourself if you believe this sort of product will work for you. You may want to consider mesh heads or even an electronic kit.I purchased this particular pad for my snare as well as my floor tom. The snare retains almost all of its buzz while cutting out the tone. To reduce the noticeable volume to the snare drum, you MUST throw the strainers off.5Where's the stick bounce?Great concept but disappointing. There isn't very good bounce action on the pad. I put the drum mute pad on my snare hoping for something fairly responsive as my snare or practice pad. Also, I had to remove it from my office where my drum kit is. While working in my office, my eyes started to burn and I traced it to the pad. I removed it from my office and my eyes quit burning. Another disappointment but perhaps airing it out a month or so before use would help. As it is, I can't have in my office. Having said all of this, please note my intent is not to slam Evans as I love Evans drum heads and have used them for years and will continue to.3A worthy investment!If you have a younger child and you have purchased a pretty decent drum set for them to start playing/practicing, the drum mutes are a must. At first your child may be taught using a round drum pad. This is somewhat similar in achieving a duller noise while playing. But here is where your investment comes in....when they have friends over! A few good smacks on the drum head without the cover by some inexperienced pre-teen wanting their rock star moment can damage the surface and send you on your way to purchase a new drum head. The mutes let your drummer learn while keeping the sound down and protecting the surface from other inexperienced folks you just want to go all bat sh$t on your new drum set.5Weak!I bought all of the Evans SoundOff mutes, for all of my drums on my 7 piece kit and all of my cymbals. I'll gladly give every other pad for every other piece of the drum kit 5 Stars! The cymbal and snare/tom mutes work great! This one however I had some issues with. It adjusts really well to your comfort which I enjoyed, but that was all I liked about it. It muted the kick drum pretty well but it wasn't great. I play drums a lot and with living in town, these pads made it nice for playing later at night. So they weren't getting heavily used, but they were being used and decent amount. After a about 2 weeks the kick drum pad got a huge hole through it, defeating it's muting purpose and one of the arms that holds it in place snapped off. I used it like that for another couple months, covering it in duct tape until about a week ago I bought a new one.2
