    Default Silencer Pads Vs Moongel

    To avoid killing my entire familys' ears I use silencer pads on my kit. Gets them to a volume where I can play at a medium volume and you can still hear the tv in the room. Although, I play in a rather open room so it's the same effect throughout most the house. I've never actually used/bought moongel before but I'm considering it so I get a better feel of my cymbals/drums. How well does it work compared to pads, and how much does it cost? Thinking I may use it only on my cymbals for a better sound, but if it works well it's going on the whole set

    Moongel is for sound absorbsion. It really isn't going to cut volume down at all. It absorbs unwanted ring, and overtones. It will just make your cymbals sound dry, but they will still be just as loud.

    Moongel is not a sound dampener or noise-reduction agent, it is merely a way to control unwanted overtones on drums and even cymbals. I use some very small pieces just to control ring on my toms, but by no means does moongel make acoustic drums less loud like silencer pads do. Moongel focuses the drums sound a little more.

    Well most of the sound coming out of the drums without pads is resonance, which is why i made the assumption.
