Snareweight #5 Drum Dampener, Brass

Snareweight is the fastest way to get your snare drum sounding its best. Solid brass, a strong neodymium magnet (to removably secure to your rim), and interchangeable leather inserts that help shape your sound, it will be the most loyal little buddy in your ever changing stick bag.

Instead of changing your head, think about simply changing the type of leather insert that sits on top of the head inside the Snareweight for a fast and effective tone change.

The other feature that is sweet about Snareweight is that it adds mass to your drum head which helps to evenly smooth the lower-mid ringing frequencies that can't be reached with other methods. The high frequency unwanted ring is shaped by the chosen insert. Keeping all the frequencies present and level across the board will bring out the true tone of your drum shell for a smoother and richer sound.

From an engineering stand point with the weight (two thirds of a pound) of a Snareweight , you get about 2-3 db of compression from your drum, which helps reel it in for recording levels and sitting in the mix. The lighter the Snareweight, the less compression. The centre sweet spot of your drum is also wider and more forgiving. Lastly, your rim shots will FEEL great and you will notice improved clarity playing anywhere on the head...no dull spots. *** It's not really muffling...it's opening.

  • This high-end damper is secured at the desired position on the hoops by a magnet
  • The leather damper can be folded up separately, as required
  • Optional damper: 70's insert and 40's insert
  • Does not work with die-cast hoops, for this the "Pro Lock" is needed
  • Includes leather damper and case
  • Brass Body Piece
  • Standard Leather Insert
  • Case
  • Width: 1.87"
  • Length: 2.44"
  • Depth: 0.66"
  • Place it on the snare head (logo up) and push it toward the metal rim. You should hear a click.
  • While hitting your drum, slide the Snareweight around like a dial to find the best sound. If the head sounds too dampened, take off the Snareweight and switch the insert to the “metal” side. This will make the dampening area smaller and allow more ring around the edge of the drum head.
  • CAUTION: - Magnet is extremely strong- keep it away from credit cards,phones, etc. or other devices affected by magnetism.
