    Alternative to Moon gels?

    RN i only muffle my snares. bought some moongel knock offs on amazon and they stick really well. have 4 on my Maple snare with black Dot Remo. On my Kapur i use a wrist sweat band taped to the hoop so i can flip it off easily when i want more overtone. I have Evans Genera Dry coated head on that.

    Snare resonances

    I ended up Tuning the 8" Pretty high and a half turn higher on the Lug closest to the snare. That helped a lot but still there. Oh well, ill just muffle it when i record then. Annoying but ive done all i can.

    Snare resonances

    I am getting Buzz on the 8" tom only and i have Grover Snare wires on the wood snare.. I don't care if i hear it, but the Mics are picking it up on recordings. Any ideas? I have low tuned the 8" and that helps. I am going to try Moongels on the reso on the Tom.

    I Love the Evans HD Dry - There I Said it

    Im with you. I love it on my Tama SLP Kapur wood snare. I tried black Dot Remo and Coated G2 and both had insane amounts of Overtones. I have a small sweatband taped to the hoop that i can flip on or off for when i want some muffling. I dont love this snare for all styles though. It's not good...

    Rate The ‘Last’ Film You Watched

    yes. love it. also many long quiet scenes of them riding and talking. I watch it at least 3 or 4 times a year. Guys bleed, guys cry, guys get scared. Im puzzled as to why its not higher ranked by Critics. A classic Good vs Evil story no more no less.

    Open Range is great. Seems very realistic and not Hollywoody. One of my top 10 fave Westerns ever.

    The Menu.... 5 stars. The best Movie of the Year for me. Hilarious, a little scary and very smart script that skewers the Rich. The ending is crazy

    Do high hat stands effect sound ???

    S Simple Solution buy a Tama Iron Cobra HH stand... Tama Hardware us all ive used and ive never had that problem. Even their Cheap stands ( i think roadmaster series? ) are good. they arent lightweight though. lightweight = equals no stability IMO
