I am just starting to play drums, and I have recently ordered some Pearl Exports. I will be setting the drums up in a room right next to the kitchen and nearby the family room and i need something that will control the sound. From what I have heard so far drum mutes suck but is there anything else that will lower the overall sound of the drums? As you can see I'm new at all this so I would appreciate all the help i can get.


thanks

hehe, sound. Thats the one anoying thing that usualy comes in huge quantities as standerd when you buy a set of drums.

Other than practice pads or drumming lightly, thier isnt any other (cheap) ways.

I agree, i hate practice pads, and hardly ever play with them. The only pad im using at the moment is my bass drum pad and thats to practice my double bass rudiments later at night when the neighbours wont mind.

*Sudden Idea* You could get lots of old bed mattreses and lean them on the walls all the way around the room, but depending on how old the beds are, it might smell.

Other than buying a $5000 Roland electric kit, no other way.

Actually there is another way: Try buying some things that are like drum sticks but when you play witht hem they are about half as quiet as drum sticks. They are called Rods. Incase you cant find anything that sais rods just look for sticks with a black handle with a punch of tiny sticks out the end of it with a black ring holding it together. They are more expensive than drum sticks but they're not too expensive, I got mine for 25 bucks.
