Roots Ring for snare
The Roots Ring is designed to 'EQ' out unwanted harsh frequencies and shorten the sustain of your drums. Drop it on, and you've instantly got a warm, mellow, full and controlled tone. The snare model features a cutout area to make sure rimshots stay clean and easy.
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.
