Medium to Heavy Dampening
Attach the clip over the rim of your drum (use the leather tab in the back of the clip to pull it open). The leather needs to sit flush on the head for optimum control. To do this, attach the clip over the top of the hoop rim, then push down until the leather (not the clip) is sitting flat on the HEAD. If you push the clip too far down on the hoop, the leather may not sit flat and dampening will be compromised.
Try several different placements on your hoop and listen for the sound change.
