I have the 24" version and was running it with a clear Ambassador for a while. I liked the versatility of it. Being able to pull or add more muffling on the fly. I think the nicest thing about it though, is the fact it can be used with virtually any drum head. I had it on my recording kit, and noticed a slight slapping noise, and took it off due to that. I never did use it live, but IMO thats the setting to use it. I ended up putting a Kicker by Sonitus in my recording kits bass drum and havent gone back.
