RTOM 22in Black Hole


A truly unique product.


RTOM 22″ Black Hole

New Design for 2023:  This pad slots inside the hoop rather than tied with the old bungee cords.

O.K., this is pretty clever. From the makers of MoonGel, Black Holes are a tensionable mesh head that ‘snaps on’ your drum hoops. The way they work is they stop the stick from hitting your heads at full force, reducing the volume by 80 %. Your drums will sound the same but quieter. As we said, clever stuff! These things are pricey but there’s no other product that allows you to play your kit at practice volumes like these do! Rubber pads? Feel horrible and makes your kit sound shocking. Mesh heads? Great but you won’t get ANY sound out of your drums. Practice pad kit? Doesn’t sound particularly fun… Nope, there’s nothing like RTOM’s Black Holes.

What they say:

“Low volume practice with an 80% reduction in volume. Sounds exactly like your drum set–just quieter! Easily snaps on to your drums – no head removal. Durable mesh head built for longevity. Tunes to your desired tension with a single-point tuning system.”

We shouldn’t be too surprised at how clever these things are, RTOM invented MoonGel after all, now an industry staple!

*If you plan on using this on a bass drum, you will likely need RTOM ‘Kick Conversion Cords’. They are sold separately.
