Rohema MiniMuff. The weight inside the pocket is actually magnetic, so it's easy to muffle/un-muffle in a blink, even with a stick. Awesome sound imo.

Fun fact: this is also exactly my snare :) Although I prefer a much higher tuning and I also think one is enough.

For an even more noticeable improvement, ditch that batter head that sucks the tone out of any drum. I make this suggestion with respect and all of Ringo’s peace and love.
Suggestions???
I have a Remo Coated Controlled Sound with dot on my side snare. Definitely a noticeable difference over the Evans EC on this one.

I found that head to be good dead feeling under the stick. Went with the control ring instead of the dot. It definitely controlled some of the liveliness without sacrificing feel.

Fitting that SG would dig a muppet muffler. 😀

Tried a Remo pinstripe on my 80s Yamaha tour 13. It sounds great. It came new with one but I switched to Evans in the late 90s pinstripes were very inconsistent then.

Been considering these for my toms. Deciding on the clear, coated or ebony.

New heads for my Gretsch rig. Going to try coated vintage Ambassadors over clear.

I love what coated Ambassadors did for my DW maple set and figure that the vintage variety will work well with the Renowns. The resos on the Renowns are the original factory heads from 2020 so they're due for a change.

Looking forward to the refresh. Lots of work ahead first!

Paiste 22” Dark Energy Mk 2
I love this cymbal, it might be in the future my 2nd 22" with my Paiste Master 22" dark crisp ride.

I regretted selling the 14” version of these.

So I just rebought the 15” Meinl Foundry Reserve Hi Hats.
Top hat is 980g
Bottom hat is 1300g

Been using the 15” Meinl Byzance Thin Jazz hats. But I feel like these FR are super versatile. Perfect mix of a little trashy, buttery, light and articulate.

I just ordered a 13x10 Pearl Masters MCX tom off Ebay (brand new) that I'll use as a floor tom.

I actually prefer a 10 / 14 tom combination but have done 10 / 13 in the past. I had originally tried to purchase a 14x14 Pearl MCX off Ebay, but the deal fell through. Buying a 10" x 13" hanging tom was my "plan B". Now I'm starting to think I may have dodged a bullet my not getting the 14" floor tom. I'm geeked at having a hanging floor tom once again.

Will send photos once it arrives.

I like the Meinl brand. Most of my percussion stuff is Meinl. Last year, I had a problem with my Meinl cabasa. I contacted the company and they made it right. Very impressive company. If anything ever goes wrong with these cymbals (highly doubtful) rest assured Meinl customer service will do the right thing. Good company.
