    Drum Boogers™– Sticky Gel Pads


    I‘d some initial reservations about covering this product. After all, how do you talk about anything called a booger and remain professional and politically correct? Then it dawned on me—playing music is about having fun, and this product is certainly fun (ask my kids). And shouldn’t we be “keeping it real”? 

    We certainly know what they are.

    But ... Drum Boogers?



    If you’re a drummer, no doubt you’ve experienced drumhead gel pads. Several companies offer them. Some work better than others. Some stick when you use them the first time and then don’t stick after that. And while some boogers can be crusty, these boogers are for sure, sticky. To use them, you simply pick one (sorry, I couldn’t resist), and place it on the drumhead. 




    •Better Drum Tone: Placing them on the head helps cut down on (or completely out, depending upon your taste) the unwanted overtones.

    •Easy to use: simply place them on the drumhead; where you place them will affect how much overtone they restrict.

    •Varying Sizes: Size matters and the bigger the drum, the more effective a larger booger will be.

    •Green/Yellow color: Means you won’t lose them. (Sure, you may throw up in your mouth a little while looking at them, but you won’t lose them.)

    •Non-Toxic: They are safe to use.

    •Re-Useable: Simply wash them with soapy water and they are good to keep using, and these boogers will stay picked-fresh sticky.




    I’m compelled to quote this statement from the back of the Drum Booger™ packaging: “Disclaimer: Drum Boogers™ are not for consumption. We know you will be tempted because, after all, they are boogers.”  So, while they are non-toxic, please do not eat these boogers, rather use them as the drum-dampening device for which they are designed. And, if you have kids, be prepared, as they are going to want to run around with these hanging off their noses! 

    Much about a product is the name and marketing. How can you not draw attention with a product called Drum Boogers™? And that catch phrase: “It’s SNOT about rocket science.”  And as they say on their packaging: “Dude, They’re Just Boogers!”
