Slapklatz Drum Dampers - Green
Slapklatz Drum Dampers - Green
Price: £7.50

5.0 out of 5 stars slapkats, 17 Sep 2014
good product for a good price.Uses as an alternative to studio rings if the rings flatten the drum sound too much.can also be used on cymbals. Dont take of too many overtones but can be added or removed to shape the sound of your drum kit depending on the rooms/venues acoustics.

5.0 out of 5 stars studio rings, 17 Sep 2014
had a new drum set for my band and needed to dampen it for studio and live play.Chucked them on in the practice room and was very happy with the results..As most drummers know when you gig or do studio work most sound guys will gaffer tape the drum to kill unwanted overtones for easier sound modelling through the sound desk.In a gig situation i usually use gel pads or similar to cut down on the ringing but in the studio they sometime need to be flatter.These rings drop on the batter heads and instantly kill all the ring and overtones thus the "studio rings" define the tone of each drum..may be too flat for a gig but i have found from playing in small clubs to large festivals to outside shows that sound can vary so much(especially using other kits) that any product that allows some form of pre determined control becomes essential in the drummers kit.As a footnote if you cut a 1 inch ring from and old drum skin you probably would get the same result.Only on one instance did a ring slip off,they are not sticky-depending on your drums angle and preference you may want to stick it down a bit..Major plus is the definition you get from the ever so troublesome booming 16 inch floor tom..sounds amazing..on a 10 inch tom its very flat- 12 inch tom is just right and on my birch snare(14)it cuts the buzz and ring but retains the volume and attack....very good product..

3.0 out of 5 stars Vespa badge, 15 Sep 2014
Badge is quite small and lightweight with a shallow embossed painted pattern.Not the greatest quality and have got better for cheaper but at the end of the day its a badge.The main issue is that the badge pin is nowhere near center so it doesn't lie straight.But it looks fine on a jacket.Dont know if the loosely fitting butterfly clip will keep it secure,time will tell.

3.0 out of 5 stars Vespa keyring, 15 Sep 2014
being as its a Vespa key ring the manufactures should have taken into account the actual size of the key.the small split ring barely opens wide enough to fit on the chunky plastic key body.It became quite painful to even turn the ring to slip the key onto it as its a bit too small. Having said that once on it looks fine and seems decent quality.Delivered quickly and a reasonable price.

4.0 out of 5 stars great buy, 22 Aug 2014
Wanted a lightweight jacket for scootering..saw these harrington jackets,a real blast from the past.For the price you couldn't get much better..a little disappointed that the tartan lining was a print,not a fluffy one like i remember but that's just me.Sleeves are lined in the usual shiny "buckets of sweat "material but again are true to the original.The colour is true to the picture,some reviewers with different colours may not find this.Fit was 99% spot on for 2xl..sleeves a good length and enough give/space in the body..the only thing i thought was it felt a little short but this is probably due to the waist elastic being new and quite tight.If i ordered a larger i think it wouldn't hang correctly but obviously body type makes a difference.All in all happy with the jacket..going to order another color...will find out then if size and quality vary....

4.0 out of 5 stars good product, 31 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
helpful bit of kit.screws and clips together to for a sturdy shooting base.Wont cure all your accuracy problems overnight but does help form a good solid technique for target shooting or zeroing..doesn't "nip" the gun stock too much so allows for the guns natural shooting movement (if any).Helps with longer sessions to alleviate fatigue if your rifle is a bit heavy..the only issue i can see is that it will cause your none aided shooting to suffer if you don't practice both ways.quality is good for the money..great for pistols too..
