The Snareweight gives you flexible dampening for your snare drum, for a fatter, warmer, and more controlled sound.
Quickly adjustable and removable, the Snareweight is a very versatile way to have consistent control over your snare drum sound. Lighter options are available to give a little control over ringing overtones, and heavier options can dramatically change your sound – giving you a warm, deep, and fat snare drum sound. The weight bounces slightly with each stroke (heavier versions bounce less), giving a very nice gated effect on the snare. The snareweight clips to the drum hoop, and has no glue or sticky reside, meaning no mess or marks on your drumheads or hoops when you remove it. This device is a great way to get a fat, slightly gated and compressed snare drum sound, without needing to spend money on recording gear.
The Snareweight M80 is a thick black leather strip that has 4 dampening options ranging from medium to heavy dampening. A magnetic system allows this device to be folded partially, fully, or completely removed from the drumhead (without needing to be removed from the drum hoop).
The Snareweight M1 is a smaller version of the M80, providing less dampening for those wanting a more open sound.
The Snareweight #4 and Snareweight Jr are solid metal blocks that magnetically attach to your drumhead, and have a range of leather inserts that sit between the metal mass and the drumhead, to give you different dampening options.
