Re: Cheap effective way of sound protecting a shed?

Stacked drywall sheets offer the best bang for buck at the $500.00 price point. You should be able to make a small enclosure from drywall and lumber for under that amount. It won't be sound proof by...

Re: Purchasing help pleasee !!!

When it comes to cymbals, there is good and there is crap and not much else between. I cannot recommend buying crap, which is what the xs20 hats are, IMO. Strike those from your list and everything...

Re: Can't hear my bass drum

/agree. Easiest thing to do is deaden the room by adding things to it. You don't need to hang anything on the walls or modify the room itself to do this. Build or buy some bass traps, would be the...

Re: Little bass control, is it normal

It's normal. You just started a month ago. Building coordination takes time and steady practice. It's also a little early to be worrying about doubles when you should be focused on getting clean and...

Re: What do YOU think makes a good drummer?

What makes a good drummer for me is that they make music interesting in some way. It may be their feel, that one special fill or even choosing not to play at all. But they bring something to the...

Fair enough. I had a look for myself and it is, in fact, slightly different.

Re: Yes it can be done! (Steve Gadd video)

Sure... but that doesn't change the fact that lusting after and even agonizing over gear can be just plain effing fun. Good playing and the quest for "the right gear" don't have to be mutually...

Re: I may have to really like these (again)...

I'll take the extra butter in the 9k, thank you. I prefer my pedals to be as transparent as possible. Plus, butter makes a good lubricant for shaving.

Re: Miking Drums

Re: Neil Peart's drum sound

DW won't make a 6" tom. Not for any amount of money, apparently. However, in Neil's case, it doesn't seem like he wants or needs it.

Regardless, I find that his toms sound better in the mix these...

Re: Miking drums for live shows

I'd settle on miking my kit with two SM57s before I'd go with that CAD set.

Re: How do you drum along with music?

I use EX-29's just like others but I wear them over EIMs for as much isolation as possible. I then have my kit miked and that is mixed with a feed from an iPad that sits behind the kit. This lets me...

Re: Want to make a room sound proof...

Relative to the performance of few $8.00 sheets of drywall and maybe $100.00 worth of lumber... yes, those things you bought are akin to snake oil. Even a crude one-sided cube (simple frame with one...

Re: Want to make a room sound proof...

Actually, both theories can be true under the right conditions... Although neither may be true in actual practice. If you make a room from lead walls, it will be just as effective as an elaborate...

Re: Want to make a room sound proof...

Well... technically, yes, that is true. But this is hardly practical advice. For the purposes of a practicing drummer, a room can said to be sound proof at the point where the level of audio that is...

Answering the OP: nothing.

Waste implies that there is no value in all the things mentioned here. But none of these things are a waste because that is how we learn: by doing. We buy stuff that we...
