RootsEQ 14" Solid Tone Control Ring - Black Bandana
The Solid Ring instantly gives you that Ringo-esque 'tea towel' sound. There's no taping rags, shorts or tea-towels to your drums, this comes on and off perfectly easily. Great for that concert-tom sound or lower-volume settings, or to calm your snare down in live rooms. Stick a set in your cymbal bag, they're super handy to have!
RootsEQ is the brainchild of Adam Topol, renowned L.A. drummer and solo artist and long-time studio and touring drummer for Jack Johnson, and Matt Smith, famed NYC based world-instruments builder. The list of artists using RootsEQ is long and star-studded, and for good reason: it's a brilliant product! Being fabric, there's none of the 'slap' or thinness sometimes associated with plastic-based products. They're easy to use, perfectly designed, robust and durable, ethically made in the USA and instantly satisfying to use.
T-shirts, gels, tape, tea towels, wallets… drummers who need to manage the tone on their tom toms and snare drums all have their style.

We have designed simple drum tone dampener that instantly gives your drum a subtle, warm tone without the buzz or the sticky tape. Easy to put on. Easy to take off. Put one on top of your tom tom or snare and let your ear be the judge. We think you won’t want to go without them once you hear the difference…
The “Solid Ring”
The same custom manufactured memory wire outer hoop but with a cloth full covered inner circle of lightweight cotton fabric that will let you dampen the entire drum head to get the next level of dampening… the famous British “Tea Towel,” the funky concert tom, or that perfect low volume sound…no tape or slippery t shirts needed here.
