Cympad Shark Snare Damper

New from Cympad and in stock in the UK is the most sophisticated method yet for muting your snare drum!

The Shark is a totally new take on a widely used item – the snare drum mute. The Shark keeps more of the initial attack of the drum and then eliminates the unwanted resonances.The hinged design, with only the smaller portion fixed to the head allows most of the surface of the Shark to ‘float’ on top of the playing surface - subtly reducing volume and resonance according to the power & intensity of the stroke. Keeping the initial snare drum attack is something that all other damping systems are unable to do. The Shark is easily removable and can be used and re-used and is manufactured from premium-grade cellular foam.

Cympad have revolutionised cymbal sounds with their Chromatic Optimisers and Moderator series, giving subtle control of cymbal sound and volume to suit venues and performance styles and they look set to do the same with snare drums now.
