"drumdots are the Rolls Royce of damper pads "
- Maurice Machado




Mauricio Machado started the life of music at the age of 6; he joined all the music programs at the school he attended and become a drummer first and later a drum tech.  Currently, I am traveling constantly as a drummer with many different bands, and also working as a drum tech for known artists such as Chris Coleman (Prince, Stevie Wonder etc..) and Sheila E.  These experiences caused me to get extremely deep and technical about drums; that's when I began to search for the perfect damper pad.  After trying all others I discovered drumdots.  They gave me the perfect balance I was missing with all the other damper pads and am now using them for every gig as a drummer and drum tech!!   I couldn't be happier ...
