Robert Plant Allison Kraus, Grammy's

I just finished watching the grammys. Did anyone watch the Allison Kraus Robert Plant performance? On the kick drum there was a flat wheel (kinda looked like a rotary style knob on an old telephone) over what seemed like the port hole. Does anyone know what that was? Was it a mute of some sort?

Thanks

Yes, it is a muffler. It clamps on to the bass drum hoop, and you can adjust how much pressure it puts on the head . . .

They sure did clean up though....really wish Jason Mraz had won something, especially best male pop vocal performance....John Mayer took it and while I respect him for his musicality, Jason totally ripped the performance on his song, I don't thing Mayer's vocal performance even came close. Masseratti also did a great job mixing Jason's vocals.

....sorry to get off topic a bit....

Well, that probably just means, you're not of a certain age . . .
