Snareweight M1b Drum Dampener

Light to Medium Snare drum dampening - 4 different settings... or, flip it up and off the head for none at all.

The M1b presents some weight on the head to help shorten the lower frequency hum and never sticks to the head unlike tape or gels. You can dampen in a snap or disengage even faster with the on/off magnet feature. Works with triple flange hoops, die-cast, s-hoops, angel hoops, true hoops, brass hoops, and 1/4" wood hoops. Leather thickness does vary between 1.5mm to 2mm.

  • Light to Medium Snare drum dampening- 4 different settings... or, flip it up and off the head for none at all.
  • Snareweight "Starter" M1b. Expressive drum dampening. Flexible by design to match a drummer's natural dynamics.
  • Patented clip for permanent grip to ALL SIZE metal hoops and 1/4" wood hoops
  • Genuine USA Leather.
  • Magnetic flexibility. Nothing "sticks" to your head- keep it open and real. Will never warp, kink or unstick.
  • Pick up two M1b's for more control and further accuracy with finding the unmusical ring- will give you 2x the options. Remember the M1b is a great fit for toms too (most floor toms should use the Snareweight M80 model). The M1b presents some weight on the head to help shorten the lower frequency hum and never sticks to the head unlike tape or gels. You can dampen in a snap or disengage even faster with the on/off magnet feature. Works with triple flange hoops, die-cast, s-hoops, angel hoops, true hoops, brass hoops, and 1/4" wood hoops. Leather thickness does vary between 1.5mm to 2mm.
  • Attach the clip over the rim of your drum (use the leather tab in the back of the clip to pull it open). * Most important*- Leather needs to sit flush on the head for optimum sound. To do this, attach the clip over the top of the hoop rim, then push down until the leather (not the clip) is sitting flaton the HEAD. Note that if you push the clip too far down on the hoop the leather may not sit flat on head and dampening will be minimal. Try several different placements on your hoop and listen for the sound change.
