The #1 Drum Damper for Drums

What is SlapKlatz?

Designed in Denmark, SlapKlatz makes what we believe is the most versatile drum dampers on the market. And from looking at the reviews they’ve got, it seems we could be right!

These small gels are very easy to use, and let drummers remove, control unwanted ring and overtones from their drums, without sacrificing the tone or the playing feel.

Easy to remove or re-adjust, simply place one of the drum gels on the head of the drum – and you are done! Fine tuning the sound is now easier than ever, making the desired drum sound achievable in a matter of seconds.

Hear the difference

Below you can hear SlapKlatz at work on a snare drum. This clip demonstrates the 12 different configurations that you can do, with 3 sizes and 4 positions – check it out!

Demonstration goes in 2 runs:
– In the first run we change the amount of dampers.
– In the second run we change the size of the dampers.

Making the best drum damper

In order to make the ideal gel drum dampers, there are a few things that has to be done right.


First up is the material. Our gel is developed to be extremely adhesive. This enables our dampers to stay on the drums, no matter where you put them. These dampers even stays on your bottom heads – or the underside of your cymbals – for that matter.

Next up is size and thickness. This is very important. We have spend so much time testing this, making sure that the individual gel has the right thickness and size, in order for any drummer to achieve the desired sound.

Second time purchasing these – I absolutely love them. The different size gels make it super easy to get the level of dampening you need for each drum. And it doesn’t hurt that they’re pink. Highly recommended!

Brand History

SlapKlatz was developed in Denmark by Gunnar Kristiansen beginning in 2009. At that time there was only one other brand on the market, and it wasn’t widely available in Denmark, so Gunnar started experimenting with different materials, sizes, shapes and colors.  Over the years, as SlapKlatz continued to develop the product line, the company established a large global distribution network. Today SlapKlatz is sold in almost 40 countries around the world and has a large and prominent roster of global artists that choose SlapKlatz over the competition because they simply prefer the product.
