“These are VERY well thought out, and the quality is excellent.“

Product Description


  • Permanent snare drum damper solution
  • New piece of drummer hardware
  • Detachable mass soaks up the ring and adds punch but maintains the high end
  • Choose a side of the removable leather insert like a treble switch on an amp
  • Slide it like a dial to quickly hone in to your sound
  • Try different inserts to match your favorite head
  • Weighted and painstakingly balanced to make the right contact
  • Insert attaches to global magnet which acts as a spring to meet head

The '40s insert is a narrower version of the '70s version, designed for the Snareweight Jr. It also works quite well with the Snareweight #4, offering less dampening than the '70s. These inserts respond to harder hits with some intentional movement, making it ideal for drummers that need variety in the studio where details are exposed. They also tend to give the snare the MOST possible high end presence while still maintaining some level of tone control. The '40s will add to your existing Jr. setup live as well, giving you more colors in a snap for tweaking the snare on the fly.

**Tip** Use just one instead of two for a brighter sound.
