My mufflers do not drone, I guarantee that. If we find this drone is caused by my muffler I'll refund the purchase price.

The muffler body is a straight through design with no baffles. The sound travels with the exhaust and does not bounce back or around. If some of the sound deadening material is removed the muffler will simply get louder. My hooligan mufflers have no sound deadening material at all with no hint of drone. I use a dual out hooligan for special occasions as it gives all the great turbo noises at 1/2 the volume of a zork.

It is mysterious that a drone has developed. Usually it is there from the beginning if it is going to occur at all.
