    Default Does anyone know how to attach this drum mute?!

    Hi everyone!
    I'm moving to a new flat in a week, and I purchased some 2nd hand mutes for my drums so I will be able to practice with out pissing off the flat mates. They're all easy to put on except the damn bass drum one! The bass mute looks like this:




    Obviously the middle part attaches to the drum its self, but I have NO idea what the two D shaped pads are for! I think they attach to the pedal some how, but how that works is beyond me! I've tried googling it and had no luck. Can anybody help??

    Welcome to Drum Chat Frejay!

    I've never seen that type of mute before, so I can't help you, but hopeful someone else will come along that has.

    Again, welcome!

    What's the name of the product? Perhaps there is an online pdf you can download to check out the manual for it. If there isn't, contact the manufacturer for instructions and/or installation guide. It's an unusual design, and one I have not seen before since I use sound percussion mutes. I can see the point of using half circle rubber cutouts, but the string doesn't make any sense to me. I would think anything you fasten it to, with any amount of greater force would cause the surfaces to fall out of position. Maybe they are an optional accessory, meant to be glued or taped down, but that's just a guess.

    Did it come with some plastic "S" shaped hooks? I use a similar mute that has the same type of setup. Use the hooks to connect the bands to the top two tension rods and the same for the bottom. My setup had two hooks per side for the bottom as shown in this pic.

    DrummerD...lol...beat me to it. Yeah, I lost the S hooks, but the whole thing's still usable.

    Ok Frejay, I took some photos, here we go step by step. I'm presuming what runs throught those semi-circular bits are very large rubber bands, am I right? They usually come with bass drum pads from companies like (Sound Percussion, HQ Percussion, and a few other brands but definitely not Vic Firth).If those are rubber bands that you have, this is what you do.

    Step 1: Pass one end over the tension bolt (T-Rods on older bass drums), and stretch other end down to an opposite one, as shown below. Make sure the flat end of the semi-circular cut-out faces the drum head.


    Step 2: now take one end of the band and stretch it to the next T-Rod or tension bolt as shown


    Step 3: Now insert the pad behind this. This one band already makes it easy to put the pad at a vertical angle, saving you having to lie the drum on a flat surface. And for your information, the triangle shaped cut-out in the pad allows the chain or strap of the bass-drum pedal to move freely, in case you ask.


    Step 4: Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the band on the right side of the pad. Done!
