Hi there,

   My name is Brandon and I live in Montreal,  Canada. I see a few Montreal-ites here, which is pretty cool. I am the drummer & bandleader for a 7-piece Hard Bop group called B's Bees. We've played at the Montreal International Jazz Festival, and currently have a residency at a local jazz club where we play 2-3 times per month.

 Check us out here:

   We'll be releasing our first album this coming March.


Brandon is a killer player; check him out.

No prob.. I had the video embedded so you don't actually have to go to the channel. but I understand.

I can get my snare to sound pretty good.. This is just another thing for guys to try if they want.. everyone is always looking for a different sound.

I can get my snare to sound how I like as well. but when guys are against moongel, or rings, or anything at all.. they usualy like that ping with the overtones... for the type of music I play that usually isn't the sound I want.. and with a tight head I have to use something.

I crank my snare heads, both top and bottom. I don't have a "ping" in the snare (sans Moongel).

If you get a ping out of your snare head, then a Moongel pr a damper ring makes WAY more sense than carving a hole in your snare head to reduce any ring.

When I watched your video, you had to use EQ to make even the "snare port" sound better, which meant to me, like the Kickport, it did absolutely nothing to improve the tone or overall sound of the snare drum.

Again; a "solution" in search of a problem.

I have no need for that product. I can get any snare sound you want without it.  ;)

I agree, Tim.

For those who have not read or seen my review of the KickPort from some years back (I was one of the first to review the product), here's my review:

Scott, you are welcome to post your personal findings, etc., here on the forum, but please don't use this platform to drive traffic to your website or YouTube channel. Thank you.
