I got a shipment from Mat for an upcoming tour I had and I can not say enough good things. Literally every product is perfect. It’s a product I can honestly say I will use for the rest of my career.

Our sound guy met Mat on a NAMM many years ago and he got one of the earlys #4 they released. He brought it to soundcheck the day I told him about this snareweight thing I found on the internet and it immediately became an essential part of my playing.The #4 gives my snare drum the control and the punch I´ve been looking for. Then I added the M80s to my toms and now I cant play without them. I really want to thank Mat for having this life-changing idea. This is drumming innovation right here dont get behind! Get them!

I use my snare weight products religiously, which has lead to me losing them in random parts of the world!! Every time I need to re-up, Mat and the team take great care of me! I legitimately don't gig w/o them! (Especially on a backline)
They've created something really solid. I believe it's the most helpful/effective drum accessory out there!

There isn't a dampening/control product better than this, anywhere. I have always hated dampening in a live setting for various reasons. Don't want to me mess with tape, moon gels, or dots/tacks. Rings get in the way. I picked up the M80 to try on my snares. Instantly BLOWN AWAY. The drum wasn't dampened, it was controlled.

My snare was slightly more ringy than I wanted prior to using the M80. Now, it's perfect. It's the exact sound I have always wanted. The drum isn't deadened or choked like it is when using other dampening. The drum still sings, but has just the right amount of beefy/bottom end tone. I will never use another dampening product. I am sold.

This Thing KICKS A**!!!!
Hello Snare Weight....Mike D. from the band DRYVR here...I was talking with Mat Donaldson ( my longtime friend / owner of Drum World in Tulsa) a few weeks back...I just had a new custom snare built for me by SoCal Drums and it is UH-MAY-ZING....(8x14 all Maple stave shell) It's my first stave shell that I've owned...but there was just a little bit of a ring / overtone I wanted to control. We talked about rings and dots, but I really don't care for either. Then he showed me and told me about "Snare Weight" (small leather with the magnets) We put it on a snare in the shop and I was Wow No Way.....took it home put it on my new monster and HOE-LEE-CRAP it's freakin perfect!!! It doesn't choke or mess up the tone, still let's it breathe and continue to hurt people..lol. all the engineers I've been workin with lately have been freakin blown away!! I just wanted to drop a note to thank You for making a product that works! (because there's so many out there that really don't) Also wanted to let you know I'm a HUGE Big Mouth!! So I plan on telling the entire world. We Play a lot of shows...so a lot of folks are going to hear about it...(or not hear...the rings...lol) and see it.
I'm stoked to be part of the extended Snare weight Family.
Thank you, You Guys ROCK!!

Snareweight is a great product and a great company. I've had my die cast pro lock for over 2 years. After a recent tour, it needed some work. I contacted Mat (having never spoken with him before), and he responded to me in minutes. He fixed everything I needed for free, quickly, around the holidays, and shipped it back to me right away. He even included an extra insert for free.

Total props to the company and product. Thanks, Mat.

With this last order, I now have 7 weights in total, plus extra inserts for the JR. Just like everyone else that has tried your products, I get asked about them all the time, receive complements from engineers, and end up loaning them to buddies for recording. They have truly become an indispensable part of my sound.

My snare sound is something I take pride in as a drummer.. I always need it to sound deep cracky and punchy without too many overtones. Snare weight provides the perfect amount of dampening without compromising the tone of the drum. I use snare weight #4 brass with 70's inserts to add a crisp dark sound which works well with my genre.

The Snareweight product line is an outstandingly well made group of very flexible drum contouring devices.
I am very critical of drum sounds and what's more dampening and over dampening.
I'm currently using the #4 on most snares and the M1's on the tom toms and the M80 on large floor toms.
The flexibility is astounding and is not binding or blocking of tone in any way simply an eq in my opinion.
Snareweight does not eat up a lot of valuable real estateon the drum either as I'm a brush player frequently.
I also mostly use brass hoops on my snares and I'm covered via the lock device.
Mat Strickland has thought of everything here and I feel he is not done by a long shot.
I hereby pledge allegiance to Mat and Snareweight!

The Snareweights make my drums sound even more amazing. The drums now have so much more tone and sound more open than using other dampeners. They allow the initial attack to come through, then dampen just the right amount by using the different inserts. They give a very focused and controlled tone with many different options. I love having so many options for in the studio. They are easy to change out. No more gooey mess like I had with those other dampeners, especially when playing gigs in the heat. The snareweight #4 brass are built like a tank! Buy them once, and they'll last forever. I can't say enough about them! I’m using the #4 Brass with the Pro lock and 40’s insert, 70’s insert, and 2 pack inserts on snares. I also use the M1’s on 10” and 12” toms, and M80’s on 16” floor toms.

No more tape and goopy gels! The M1 is the best dampening system i've ever used. Instant punch to my snare and toms! Great in the studio, they almost work like a natural gate. Also if you have to use someone else's kit live you wont piss off anyone by clipping on a few of these. I haven't tried the big brass jobs yet, i'm just completely sold on the m1s. Cant wait to try the m80!

All the snareweight products i know are outstanding damping solutions. You can achieve an amazing snare sound without loosing a nice crispy or - if you want - killer attack and depth. I use the #4 and M1 in different studio and live situations and i always have a M1 snareweight in my stickbag. I will try out the M80 and juniors asap :)
I love this stuff - killersound but no soundkiller!

2016-08-28, 17:12
Like all Snareweight products, the M80 is ultra versatile and ideal for snares and larger drums where more attenuation might be useful. I mostly use it on my 14" floor tom and can easily change the sound of the drum from song to song in a snap. So long sticky gaffer tape and lint covered gels!
Joshua Jaeger
2016-08-25, 21:49
I got so tired of tape and tissues and sticky moongels. Not to mention the fact that I always felt like I was chasing a sound and a feel that I just hadn't found yet. Once I started playing with the Snareweight M1 it was like everything clicked. The M1 offers me the perfect amount of dampening and tonal control without having to sacrifice any feel. My favorite feature is that you can quickly change the amount dampening on each drum, or whether there's any dampening at all. It's great for times that you need to switch quickly from a dead snare to a more open one. It's like having three snares in one!

If you've been playing the M1, you've gotta try the new M80. Same idea but bigger and better.

Just got some Snareweights and i couldn't be happier. I'm using an m80 on my snare plus another on my 18" floor tom and I've been experimenting on my 13" rack with the M1 using 1 or 2 or (half sides of 2). The overtone control is fantastic and my drums are really singing in a pure and focused way. These little beauties are a real game changer!

Just got the chrome Snareweight #4 for my bell brass snare, along with the 70's inserts, and it has perfected the way my snare sounds! Previously I've used a gel or two and those just get messy or occasionally still don't get rid of that tiny bit of annoying ring..
With the actual weight of the snareweight on the head, plus the 70s straps, the huge sound of my snare is still present, but completely gets rid of all unwanted ring, and sounds perfect in my in-ear monitors as well as out front! My sound engineer and tech love it as well.

I have been using the Snareweight Jr. on my Angel Hoop'd drums and its fantastic. Kills the overtones just slightly without killing the reverb of the drum. I also use the normal size snareweight on my 18" Floor Tom to help kill some of the overtones as well and its perfect. Won't leave home without it!

The snareweight has allowed me to not only get a super consistent sound night to night, but it's allowed me to travel with less because for the first time I can get all the sounds I need out of 1-2 snare drums on the road. For this I'm ever thankful. The less gear that's under a bus or in a trailer, the better!

One of my biggest issues with dampening in the past was not being able to find anything that could handle show after show. In the Texas heat, during festival session, every gel I bought would be a puddle by the end of the night. I love that I never have to worry about heat or things like that anymore.

And the inserts are not only user friendly, they really do cover the whole dampening spectrum. And the 2-3db of compression is making the engineer inside of me freak out...why didn't anyone think of this earlier?!? My in ear mix has never sounded better and the snare weight has allowed me to EQ my snares in a really sensitive way both live and in the studio. It's allowed me to get a superior sound at the source.

I received my Brass Snareweight yesterday just in time for practice and I can easily say that it was worth the money! Immediately I could hear a difference in my snare's tone, attack, and resonance. It almost seemed like a completely different drum! The hand written letter included in my package just made my whole experience so personal and friendly, Mat was so kind and he even sent me an extra leather insert! Now that's customer service! I can't wait to add more Snareweights and leather inserts to my collection, I'm hooked! I'll definitely be a Snareweight user for life and I'm excited to see what they come up with next!

Snareweight chrome, brass, and the M1's are excellent. Every drummer who is doing live sound/recording/ or just conscious about getting great sound out of their drums should pick these up. I would dare say that these are more valuable than a particular pair of sticks / head type if you had to choose.

I originally used Snareweight when recording with Dryw Owens and I was blown away. Since then I have picked up a chrome and a M1. I have had about 10 sound guys come up to me now and ask me what the chrome weight is. Moral of the story, these will make your drums sound great and help highlight your playing by making the drum tone stand out among the crowd.

Not only does the snareweight work AND sound better than all other options... it will not wear out like the competition!! Not to mention the versatility you have to change your snare sound with the amazing selection of inserts. It works perfectly, it looks sharp, it's easy to use... WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT!? It's really an incredible product and is SO very worth it!

I am completely blown away, I have made a living recording, and producing for years, and until now the"voodoo"one would have to do to get a fat dead/controlled studio snare/drum sound was horrific, the tape, the gels, the mess, until my friends at SNAREWEIGHT solved this situation. They took an artistic approach, with workhorse functionality, this is the most versatile drum dampening product ever that has hit the market, so much flexibility, and just think.. no more destroyed sticky drum heads, thank you guys, you nailed it, I use the Chrome Snareweight #4 with the 70's Inserts on my snares, and the M1's on my toms, Thank you Snareweight - My new innovative Drum Dampening System -

The M1 is an ingenious little device: subtle and adjustable dampening in the blink of an eye. And it sticks to the drum where you put it, no mess, no residue - even during transport.
Forever gone are my days with Moongel & Co.

My whole Snareweight experience has been incredible. The product is undeniable both live on stage, and in the studio. Not to mention Mat and the crew are extremely knowledgeable of the product and some of the nicest dudes around. I'm constantly asked how I achieve such great tone/balance out of my snare, and the answer always starts with "have you heard of Snareweight?" Keep it up guys!

Well done Mat, after playing for more years than I care to admit to, recording , playing and touring with Seven, as well as magian the Drum Dept at Absolute Music, the M1 is without a doubt the best snare dampening device there is.
Look forward to selling them in the UK, and using them on the next album.. Thank You

I just purchased my second M1 Snareweight. These things are hands down the best snare drum mufflers i've tried. It doesn't make the head lose it's rebound like many other mufflers that sit on top of the head. Gives me a nice fat tone without an unnatural feel...Great invention, I'm sure I'll be buying more for a few more of my snares. Plus the clips stay on the hoops. Killer!!

Thanks so much! Love my new Snareweight. I saw other audio engineers using them and swearing by it, thought id give it a go myself and SO glad i did. Vastly improved the tone of my snares, dried up overtones without killing the resonance of the head. If your thinking about buying one go for it, you won't regret it at all. Mat even sent me synthetic inserts instead of leather when i requested them, what customer service! Lovely guy and very easy to deal with, couldn't recommend his service and product enough.
Another happy customer all the way from Australia :)

Bro! This product is incredible. My buddy who is a percussion major at my University really digged it as well. We compared a brass snare with no dampening, the snare weight, plastic ring dampeners, moon gels etc. The snareweight had the best tone and response. I cannot wait to purchase the rest of the catalog.

I've been using the snare weight on all kinds of recordings as well as live. I absolutely love it! I have the 70's leather magnetic pieces and you should try experimenting with all combos. Either both, the left or the right. It all effects the sound depending on placement. It's a genius product and I've recommended it to all my drumming buddies.

Just in love with the snareweight i'm using since last year, it allows you to get differend tones on the same snare, and making it sound much better even if it's not an expensive snare, all my support to Mat, he changed everything about dampening, something that most of professional drummers must have in their mind bescause sound is also the personality of a musician, so sure that the snareweight is going to improve it!

Hey Mat,

Wow! That is all I can say in regards to this product. This snareweight sounds amazing! I got it in the mail and was immediately amazed at the quality of the product. The machined brass is immaculate, and the leather inserts and 70's pieces.

I messed around with the different inserts on my brass snare, and found many different awesome sounds. I threw it on during a recording session and the engineer said "wow, what did you do? the snare sounds amazing now!". I'm excited to tour with this, and I hope to be a long lasting owner of snare weight! You should try making a travel/heavy duty carry case for the weight, inserts, and 70's strips for us touring fellas, I would love that! Thanks again mate!

Hey Mat:

Just got the SnareWeights in...


The quality -on all levels (Machined Brass, Pop-open case, etc) is incredible -only surpassed by the sonic quality! I haven't tried all of the leathers, nor the 70's mutes*

Being a small business owner -for 33 years- I really appreciate it when I see attention to detail, customer service and impeccable quality. It's evident that these are the corner stone(s) of SnareWeight.

As mentioned, I'm giving one set of these as a gift and trust that Greg will appreciate the SW as I did!!! As well, I work with several local studios in the Lehigh Valley of PA and plan on bringing the SW's along to the various sessions. Hopefully you'll hear from some local studios!

Please keep me in the loop as you continue to develop the SnareWeight line and any other drum products.

*I have a Rogers COB Dyna-Sonic that's had an inherent ring that I've had to deal with since 1976 (bought it new with a Ludwig Clear Vistalite kit) -can't wait to try the 70's on this snare! I KNOW it will resolve the problem...

I was so friggin excited to open the box and play with it and attach the different flaps in there. thank you so much for sending it. makes my snare sound the way I have always wanted it to. if you don't have one already, get one. and if you already have one, get another.

Got a good story for you.

I was setting up back stage at a festival in the summer and a bands (cant remember the name) drum tech was setting up as well near me so I passed him the weight to try it out. The drummer for the band saw us playing around with it and came over to see what we were up to and instantly fell in love with it. When I eventually took it off him to put it back on the kit I was setting up his exact words to his tech where "get me one of those ASAP, I feel naked and exposed now!" Haha. This actually lead to the drummer telling his tech off for not already knowing about snare weights and having one in his tech case. Haha.

I'm crazy about the snare weight. The 70's inserts do such a great job of toning down unwanted overtones on my snare drum while still maintaining the right amount of ring and tone. It's quickly become an important part of my sound night after night. Don't leave home without with thing!

Mat, you have made my day. been using the snareweight for a few weeks now and honestly it has been a total game changer. thank you so much. gonna have our photographer get some shots with dan for you. honestly I will never use MOONGEL again.
I love the versatility of snareweight even though the drums are close mic'd and the boys are on inears i have found that the acoustics of the room require more or less dampening which is great news for using this.

really really enjoying this mat. you legend.

I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical of the Snare Weight at first. I like an open tone out of my snare drum, so I tend to stay away from damping of any kind. However, because I do a lot of studio work for TV/Film here in L.A., I'm often asked to add a little tape or a wallet to my drum to achieve a certain sound. In the time I've had the Snare Weight, I've been able to tailor the sound to suit the producers that I'm working with, as well as keep some of the open tone that I like to hear. The Snare Weight is more than just a "muffler", it actually adds a certain "heft" to the sound of the drum... almost like a compressor... and I've found that I'm using it with the standard insert almost all the time. Thanks Mat! You've made my job easier!

I've been using my Snareweight for nearly a year now and I can honestly say, it's the most versatile drum accessory I own. And because of that, it comes with me to every gig and recording session. To have the ability to change snare sounds (depths, heads, you name it) within seconds from a tool that fits in the palm of your hand is priceless. Do yourself a favor and pick one up now!

Oh, and don't sleep on the inserts... they each have unique impacts on your sound. Get em all and mix and match.

I just received my snare weight and I must say the design of this little gadget is superb. I play alot of metal so messing around with the different inserts on the snare is out of control cool, the 70s patches even kill it! easy to use and makes my snare drums sound thicker. I cant wait to use this live/ in studio, Great little piece of equipment.
Adam McMillion
2014-09-26, 01:34
Genius design and packaging. I am using the Pro Lock for diecast and it fits perfectly over the rim. I can eliminate unwanted ring with the smallest insert and I get super fat sounds with the 70s flaps. Works great in the studio as well when overtones can be annoying and time consuming to get rid of. I'm a fan!
Evan Frank
2014-09-26, 00:54
I was lucky to get one of the first Snareweights (I think it was # 0034!!), about 3 years ago. It was ALWAYS on my snare. I tune my snare very high, and without the snareweight the ring could be very annoying. As it is, I get compliments all the time at gigs about how great my snare sounds. It's got a wonderful throaty crack, without all the over ring. I am hooked. Sadly, I lost my old friend at a gig recently, but already have a replacement. The next generation. The quality is still there with some added features.
I highly recommend this device, and will continue to use it in all my projects!!

I used the snare weight with 70s leather yesterday on a session and wow! The session drummer and I were both floored. Instant perfection. Took all the unwanted tones and rings out, but retained the life of the drum. Extremely necessary tool for my drum recordings now.
Aaron Taylor
2014-09-15, 18:10
I picked up the Snareweight (and all of the separate inserts and prolock, etc.) a couple months ago, and I'm totally loving it! I did some recording yesterday and when we were listening to the different and several takes we recorded, I couldn't help but love the snare drum sound that I was getting. I've been playing for a while and I've always wanted to get a really nice fat snare drum sound for when I'm playing within the rock genre, and I've finally found the perfect combination to get that sound - one of the biggest factors is the Snareweight! When I was listening to the raw unprocessed recordings we got, I couldn't help but notice how beefy the snare drum already sounded! Thanks for an awesome product!

I have been using my Snareweight for about a week now and from the first note I fell in love with it. I even change out the inserts on different tunes through our show at times, although one will work on all our tunes. It is just nice to have THAT much flexibility without removing?adding tape etc.
My Snareweight will go with me EVERYWHERE from now on. Thanks Mat and Snareweight!

My good friend and bad ass drummer pal, Nathan Warshowsky recently turned me on to a snare dampening system that really knocked my socks off.Snareweight! Nate put me in touch with the genius inventor and all around wonderful dude, Mat Strickland. I promptly ordered one up and got to give it a whirl yesterday. Honestly, I was floored. The drum remained tonal, massive and never choked. Regardless, of the insert that I used. Each insert is unique and creates a different sound. Forget gaff tape or mylar rings. This is the answer if you need some snare dampening in your life. It's also very affordable. I got the weight and all of the inserts shipped to my door for around $80. It works with triple flanged or die cast hoops! Recording engineers and live engineers will love you and your drum will sound epic. They'll probably even thank you with a hug and a nice cold beer.

I showed up to a gig with a house kit that had a decent snare, so I didn't bother unpacking my snare, but still threw my weight on it, the sound guy was shocked and said he had never heard his drum sound that good.

Hey guys this is Justin R from NY. Just got the snare weight and I absolutely love it. Thanks so much me and my band take one car absolutely love the new tone. We've been fighting with my snare for sometime and the snare weight really brought much needed control to it. Thanks again!

I have been using the Snareweight in my studio for over a week, and I must say that it is fantastic. I am amazed at how it eliminates the overtones, but does not completely kill the sound of the snare. I am finally able to tune my snares low without the overtones that I usually deal with. It is like having my snare arsenal doubled because of the almost limitless tuning options.

I am also impressed with the quality of the Snareweight. From the packaging, storage case, and materials used for the inserts and theSnareweight itself, everything was top notch. Customer service was fantastic and I would like to thank you for the extra thumbs crews and personal note you included with my package.

Congratulations on a great product and I wish you all the best with your endeavors. You have made me a huge fan of the Snareweight.

"Already had two drum sessions and the drummers (and myself) love it! No more need for copious amounts of gaffa tape etc. haha. Will recommend this to all, even if I live in Australia."

The snare weight is "UNBELIEVABLE"! I already knew where was the "ping spot" on my snare, so I placed the snare weight at that spot and "wham-bam/thank you mam" tha ping was gone... I still moved it around the rim, also varied the head tension(although I like a "fat" sound) just to hear how IT would perform... Not only am I a user but I will have some friends over to listen! Thank's again MAT., take care... :-)

"Just got the 70's , my honest opinion: they are amazing!!!
Now i can tune my snare very low without having the overtones , just that solid crack at a low tunning."

Hey dude! I just put in my order for my snare weight 2! I had another studio session yesterday and felt lost without it! Lol even Rickey Medlocke my producer noticed right away and ask what happened to it? Haha. I'm hooked man.. Ill be keeping this by side for when I'm on the studio and on the road! Congrats on making a brilliant product.

Hey man! The last 3 days in the studio were great.. I absolutely love the snareweight.. It literally worked perfect. The engineer loved it and Rickey Medlocke who's producing the album loved it as well.. It's a brilliant piece!

I put the snareweight with the 70's Beef flaps on there and WHOA. WHOA. So the hard part about muffling this drum has always been that you lose way too much high end on the rim shots and they end up not adding any additional cut really. There was a perfect amount with this setup. It made a noticeable difference still and was perfect. Some people knew I was using something new and said they really thought it was amazing. I had a number of people that had no idea I was doing anything different that came up to say "your snare sounded amazing tonight man."

I have been using the Snareweight for the past few months and really love it. Don’t know if you have done a review of it for the magazine, but I think you should. It’s really kick ass. I use it at the show, and always bring it with me to sessions.

Hey dude.
This Snareweight is incredible. Everybody over here always asking about my snare sound and how they get one! It’s constantly being carried around with me.

Mat, my Snareweight #2 is absolutely awesome on my beautiful C&C custom snare. Brass rims sounded hollow. I just couldn’t get the sound exactly where I wanted until now. Thanks bud!

…”The tone that it creates is killer! I’ve been trying it out both in live and recording situations and it gets a noticeably different sound from moon gels out of any snare. Metal and wood drums get a noticeably punchier and more focused sound compared to moon gels that sounds way great.”

Dude! The SnareWeight is dope! It kinda gives you best of all worlds in regards to dampening your snare. The snare doesn't lose any natural tone whatsoever and I love it's flexibility. Being able to move it around so that I can still get a little ring out of the snare, while keeping it tame is fucking brilliant. It really does compensate to make the snare sound fatter too, unlike other dampeners that do the complete opposite. This would be my go-to dampener for snares. I can't wait to use it under mics where I know I'll hear even more of a difference!

Let's touch base in a few days after I've played with it a bit more. I'm kinda swamped with everything but playing drums right now, but it's on my snare and it'll be on there throughout the week and I will have a session at some point. Btw, LOVE the cigarette style case. Brilliant.
