Snareweight #5 is built for metal triple flange hoops (die cast hoops need the additional "pro lock" adapter). The #5 is precision cut from solid 3/4lb. brass. The weight, friction, and magnet, all work together to create "expressive dampening"- giving color options to your playing all the way through the dynamic range.
A neodymium arched magnet secures the Snareweight to the hoop while at the same time securing the leather insert.
