T-shirts, gels, tape, tea towels, wallets… drummers who need to manage the tone on their tom toms and snare drums all have their style. Roots EQ’s is another tone control option to add on to your list. We literally “EQ” some shrill high-end tones that you may hear from a drum. We have designed simple drum tone dampener that instantly gives your drum a subtle, warm tone without the buzz or the sticky tape. Easy to put on. Easy to take off. Put one on top of your tom tom or snare and let your ear be the judge. We think you won’t want to go without them once you hear the difference…

The “O Ring”
Custom manufactured memory wire outer hoop designed to be durable and retain its’ shape while adding the perfect amount of weight to the surface of the drum head. Drop it right on and it will stay put. Pull it off instantly! Cloth hoop is double layered, hand stitched and weighted to provide the optimal amount of dampening and “EQing” out of unwanted tones and leaves ample space in the middle of the drum head open for uninhibited brush sweeps and stick work. A quick and effective way to get those toms and snare to sound warm and mellow.

The “Solid Ring”
The same custom manufactured memory wire outer hoop but with a cloth full covered inner circle of lightweight cotton fabric that will let you dampen the entire drum head to get the next level of dampening… the famous British “Tea Towel,” the funky concert tom, or that perfect low volume sound…no tape or slippery t shirts needed here.
