DEAD RING CYMBAL MUTES ARE A US PATENT PENDING PRODUCT THAT MUTE CYMBALS FOR PRACTICE WITHOUT AFFECTING PLAY-ABILITY. THEY ARE AVAILABLE IN SIZES FROM 6 INCHES TO 24 INCHES IN CLASSIC BLACK. DEAD RING MUTES ARE ALWAYS HANDMADE IN THE USA.
Why Mute Cymbals?
It is often impossible for drummers to practice without disturbing someone. Practice typically requires a dedicated room such as a studio lock-out, which gets expensive. Drum practice is also very loud and hard on drummers’ hearing. Dead Ring Mutes address both issues by providing a simple solution to quiet cymbals during practice without affecting play-ability.
The Perfect Solution
The cymbal muting products on the market today are triangular foam pads that cover part of the cymbal. They take the “feel” out of playing as they require a drummer to strike foam rather than metal. They also turn drumming into target practice, because they only cover a small area and you have to strike the pad. For this reason, existing products make it impossible to work on technique and pretty much take the fun out of drumming.
Dead Ring Mutes are easy to install, by simply stretching the elastic band around the cymbal circumference. They only cover one inch of the cymbal around the edge which keeps the rest of the cymbal available for normal playing.
Dead Ring Mutes are currently a Patent Pending product. They are created from woven flexible materials and will be hand made in the US. I have created a brand and a supporting website (www.deadringmutes.com). I have also created a basic demonstration video, and am in the process of filming a editing more, higher quality videos.
