Consumer & Commercial Products


Create a consistent damper to get your snare drum sounding its best.


A need to provide a reliable damper to instantly modulate the tone of your drum.


Just about anything can be used to damp a drum. Old heads, rings, tape, phones, clips, and towels – they all work to some degree to change the sound. Snareweight is designed to maximize the instrument by providing a uniform damping solution. Snareweight is the fastest way to get your snare drum sounding its best. Made of solid brass, a strong neodymium magnet (to secure to your rim, but removable), and interchangeable leather inserts that help shape your sound. Sorbothane® inserts merge with the weight, friction, and magnet – all working together to create what we call “expressive damping”- giving color options to your playing all the way through the dynamic range. Snareweight’s mission is to create durable, long-lasting products produced under U.S. Patent 8541675, to help the working drummer stay on top of the ever-changing music industry.
