Reviews for Drum Gel, 12 Pcs Clear Drum Dampener, Drum Damper Gel Pads, Non-toxic Soft Drum Sound Dampening, Tone Control for Your Drum Head
People say Makanu is really similar to Moongel.
Perfect alternative to moongel.
These work great. I was gonna buy the moon gels, but for the money and value, I'll be sticking with these. Being that they're clear and only sticky on one side, they stay clean looking and don't attract lint and dust. Drummers buy these. You will not be disappointed!!
Great help in sound!!!
I have used dampener rings (which I like) Moongel (which I liked also!) , But these little items are great! Hardly noticeable and dampens overtone rings without smothering the sounds you want! NOW I will see if they stay on the drumheads over time. Been playing drums for 62 years (Still Play!) and realize everyones taste in sounds differ.. personally, I am well satisfied!!
I have been using rings for years with acceptable results, but was looking for something that wouldn't blow away when on outdoor gigs. Ordered these, but picked up a pack of Moongels from a local store also. Tried the Moongels and they helped, but were a pain to use: hard to get apart and didn't stick all that well. Then my order of these little guys arrived and - boom! They stick MUCH better, are nearly invisible and can be left in place because they are only sticky on one side. More in the package and easy to use, too, as they aren't all stuck together. Sorry, Moongels - these are better ny far!
Like these better than Moongels
I've used Moongels in the past, and while they certainly do the job, I didn't like that they were sticky on both sides, and tended to break down over time, leaving blue goop on the drum. These Makanu dampeners are sticky on one side, and the material seems less gooey, more resilient than Moongel.
Sounds like a winner
These provide just the right damping for my snare. They are plenty sticky, but easily enough removed (and reaffixed) to a coated snare head. I have never used the name brand 'MoonGels', but these work great and are a lot cheaper.
Great to stick & leave
My favorite part of these is that you can throw your drums in a bag or case and since they're only sticky on one side, they wont come off in the bag or if you throw a BFSD on them!! They've got a smaller area than moongel (which I like), and they're clear (which I like). If you manage to hang on to the plastic slips they come on, they can be used and reused about 4 times before they lose their real strong stick. Nice product! Better value than moongel, too!
Better alternative than moongels
Stays in place on drum heads even during transport in cases. Stays much cleaner than Moongels. I love that they’re only sticky on one side—really keeps a clean clear look since they don’t get all funky.
Really sticky, really good!
Nothing to dislike at all! A hell of a lot better than it’s Moongel competitor. I won’t use anything else now, sticks on reso heads no problems.
Better than moongels.

10/10 Far more dense than name brand moongel so you dont need as many to dampen a drum, also having only one sticky side keeps them from getting dirty.
