Default Re: Items that will help reduce volume of drums

Vic Firth, Evans, and Ahead offer dense foam rubber pads for drums, kick & cymbals, which cut the volume by 80-90% I'd guess. Probably your best bet for retaining your current physical setup, and a reasonable feel from the whole kit. It will be quiet, but won't sound like a quiet kit. You won't have any attack or decay that defines tom and cymbal sounds, for example.
