SlapKlatz makes what we believe is the most versatile drum dampeners on the market.
These drum gel dampeners lets you easily control or remove unwanted ring and overtones from your drums and cymbals, without sacrificing the tone or the playing feel.
In order to do that, several things needs to be done right.
ABOUT THE MATERIAL
First up is the material used for these drum mute pads. Our drum gel is developed to be very sticky. This enables our SlapKlatz drum head dampeners to stay on the drum head, no matter where you put it. These damper pads even stays on your bottom heads - or the underside of your cymbals for that matter.
The round shape helps the gels to stay on the drum heads as well, since there are no corners that can be picked up accidentally.
ABOUT SIZE AND THICKNESS
Next up is size and thickness of the drum mutes. This is very important in order to make them as versatile and functional as possible. We have spend a lot of time trying out all sorts of different thicknesses and sizes.
ABOUT THE SELECTION
From all this research and development cam out our SlapKlatz PRO package.
This drum damper kit gives you everything a professional drummer needs, to be able to control and improve the sound from his or her drum set.
BEST PRACTICE IN USE
When using more than one damper gel on your drum head, you should place the gels with equal distance between them.
ONE DAMPENER: Place at 12 o'clock.
TWO DAMPENERS: Place at 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock.
THREE DAMPENERS: Place at 12 o'clock, 4 o'clock and 8 o'clock.
...and so on.
