    Default Do they make 8 inch studio rings?

    Just a really quick question since I can't seem to find it online anywhere. I'm thinking of eventually replacing my kit with a Ludwig Lacquer fusion set that comes with a free 8 inch tom. I know they make studio rings for fusion kits, but the smallest I've seen is 10 inches. Of course, I might not even need rings on the new kit considering a Ludwig probably sounds a lot better out of the box than my generic one, but I want to find out before I commit to buying it in the off chance that I want them.

    Get Moongel instead, they fit on any size tom. If you want to really deaden the drums like the studio rings do then just put several pieces on there.

    I've used moon gel and there's no comparison to me. But they might sound better on a different (better) kit, so I guess I'll see when/if I ever make the switch.

    If you put a studio ring on an 8" tom it'll no sustain at all...it would sound like you're hitting a little plastic bucket.

    There are a thousand ways to dampen a drum, dont let studio rings stop you from buying a kit.

    My best advice here would be to cut a clear drumhead to the shape/size that will fit on the existing 8" drumhead. The drumhead you cut to fit must NOT be ec2, pinstripe, hydraulic, etc because of added dampening agents. Just use a regular single ply clear head like ambassador, classic clear, g1, etc and cut it into a ring so that it fits over your head. You could also use remo muffl discs underneath, but that can make things a little too dead if you're not used to it.

    The more Moongel you use, the more it'll deaden the drum. Yeah, if you use one piece it won't come close to to the studio rings, but try putting a few on there and you'll see a big difference.

    Actually, this isn't a big deal anymore. I just found out that the fusion kit is the same price as the standard kit. The standard kit comes with a free 10 inch tom instead of an 8 and they make 10" studio rings. So if and when I decide to do this, I'll just get that one.

    They don't make them, personally I think it would choke the drum ,I know it would on mine. just using a double ply head on my 8 inch tom is too much. With that said if you still want one just make your own by cutting up an 8 inch coated head.
