Hello to my blog readers. Today I’m writing on a subject that I receive a lot of DM questions about, and I also read a lot of smack talk about amongst drummers in online forums who stand by their opinions on either side of the matter. That matter is drum muffling. Since I just did a video for RTOM for Sweetwater’s Gear Fest 2020 discussing when, how, and why to use moon gels I figured this was a perfect time for a blog on the topic. In fact I will use “moon gels” as my catch all phrase for any products one might use for drum muffling. Because the reality is drum muffling is a means to an end, and nothing more. An incredible tool that when used properly can save time in terms of getting the sounds you are looking for quickly.
