I like those olefin rubber mats with short fuzzy pile. You see them a lot as doormats at public buildings. They last forever, don't cost much and transport easily. They take spikes and velcro well and protect wood floors. I use a small one, just 2 by 3 feet, because I only really need to secure my bass drum, hihat stand and percussion pedals. All my other stands just have one foot on the rug. The rug is so low-profile that it doesn't make a difference.

i use a 5x8 area rug that i got at lowes for about $35. its fairly nice and i have never had a problem big with it. it is beginning to look dirty (its beige) and smell (spilt drinks) so i might get another. id like to get a nicer classy oriental rug instead.

I use a big square of the stuff you normally have as wall-to-wall carpeting. It's great for velcro. It tends to fray a little bit at the edges, but that may not be a big issue as it'll last for years. You may be able to get this stuff secondhand (cheap or free) from offices that are moving out/renovating.

I'm using the Protection Racket Drum Rug, which is great. It's lightweight, rolls up easily and the corners don't try to roll back up when you place it on the floor. It's also black, so it doesn't stand out on a stage floor.

I used to simply use some leftover carpet I got for a few bucks, which worked fine enough, but this time I decided to spend the extra bucks on a "proper" rug, and it really was a good investment.

im using some old as rug made from as far as i can tell is like strips of materiel weaved together. its strong, low profile and the spurs doesn't leave marks in it. the only down side is... IT SO HEAVY!

not long ago i played a gig at a mates party and i forgot my rig.. (BOO1 me) so i ended up setting up on a giant flat foam clown. was hilarious. but left a little to much moment for the kick pedal.. i was worried it would damage the hoop on the bass drum from it moving up and down because it was so foamy.

any way.. i don't think rugs make a huge difference do they? please correct me if im wrong?

I use mine for two reasons, and it definitely makes a huge difference for me:

1: It stops my stuff sliding around on slippery stage floors
2: It's tape-marked, so wherever I set up my kit I know exactly where to place all my hardware.

See the link in my signature for some pictures of my rug in action, tape marks and all.

I bought a 6x9 area rug at walmart for $25 that's not real heavy, transports easily, didn't break the bank and well it just works. For me being able to have everything including my throne sit on the carpet is important.

Apart from the Protection Racket rug, which is nice, stay away from "drum rugs"--all that I have seen are too thin to do the job. They are also stupid expensive compared to an area rug or a carpet remnant.

Last summer my kid did a multiple-band gig. The drummer before him had a "drum rug" with a bass drum stopper. Well, his bass drum didn't move but the rest of it ended up bunched up under his kit.

Besides, a nice fake oriental looks cool:

I went to home depot, and found a large area rug for 10$, nothing fancy but works great, protects the bass and stuff doesn't slide around. Look on craislist as well for a large area rug, you can spend tons on a nice one, but why, its gonna get beat up anyways, so save some money for better stuff, like sticks, cymbals, etc....

if you're just looking to stop your bass drum from getting away from you, I have something better than a rug:

get a rope, it doesn't need to be a very thick one, more like a string. tie a loop on each end of the rope. then hook the loops onto the spurs of your bass drum and wrap the rope around your throne.

there's no chance of your bass drum getting away, and it's much easier to carry around a little piece of rope than a drum rug or a cinder block.

Yeah, I have actually played on kit the had this done and it was extremely uncomfortable due to the fact that it centers your body behind the bass drum instead of your body being centered behingd the snare drum. The result is you having to twist your waist in a way that you will pay for not much later.

No, a rug won't have an impact on how your drums sound (unless it's several inches thick, I suppose).

hooking twine between your throne and bass drum doesn't have to change your body-to-pedal position at all.

http://www.phatfoot.com/videos/pf-drop.html

Phat Foot solves the problem of the bass drum & high hat sliding out of place created by the force of the drummer's foot kicking the pedal. It stabilizes the movement of the bass drum/hat by harnessing and anchoring the drum seat to the drum/hat pedal which is attached to the drum/hat linking all three into one solid and complete unit. Phat Foot™ is the perfect replacement for awkward carpets, and the hazards related to using ropes or chains are eliminated.

I tought this one would be kind of nice to go with my Gretsch drums but when it arrived there were some quality issues so I sent it back. Gretsch is sending me another one. I'll post it with the kit............if the rug passes my QC.

Home Depot has 4x6' rugs for $20. It's the perfect size for my set up. I had a rug with a rubber backing, but it didn't seem to make any difference whether it had one or not, so I figured I'd save myself the hassle of carrying around an extra few pounds of rubber...

Also, the drum rug isn't just to keep things from sliding, but it also reduces the "live" reflective sound you get from playing on a hard surface.

I only ever use one if my bass drum keeps sliding away in sound check or practice. Hope the new one passes QC checks.

I'm guessing you don't carry that with you to gigs though? Looks pretty heavy and it would take up a lot of space in the car :-)

I collect antique tribal rugs (e.g. Baluch, Afshar, Qashqa'i, etc.). I picked up a beautiful 80 year old Khamseh rug that has hand spun wool and vibrant natural dyes for a song. It had a few low areas (who doesn't after 80 years!); and was therefore not attractive to collectors. I have my congas on it. I have combined two of my passions. I am in a bit of awe that some nomads, living a very difficult life, made this gem and I have the pleasure of enjoying it 80 years later.

Take care all.

I would say if you're going to use a drum rug - go for the one that you like the best and will look nice with your kit. Low profile rugs are the most practical because they serve all the functions of a "drum rug" and they don't get in the way that much if at all if you find the right one. They really don't take up much more space if you think about it and they can serve as a nice cushion between stuff while transporting your drums.

I picked the new Gretsch Rug only because I play - you guessed it - Gretsch drums. However, my drums do not leave my drum room. The Gretsch rug has metal (lightweight metal) on the corners to help keep them from turning up and some rubber underneath the outside edge and it's very low profile - light too - only a lb. or two it feels like.

Pretty good rug story! Yes - I would be in "awe" at the thought of the history of that rug and pleased to have it under my drums. I had my conga drums on a handmade Indian rug (each drum on a small piece of plywood on the rug) 30 years ago. It was an old rug at that time. I've long since given the rug away. Your Post brought back memories of that rug and playing days long gone bye - thanks!

I'll take a rug outside on the paved driveway and pour a bucket of HOT water (hot cuts grease) with Mr. Clean or carpet cleaner or dishwashing liquid, laundry soap or whatever I got on it, and scrub it with a fairly stiff brush on a long handle (looks like a pushbroom). The more soppin' wet the better. Then squirt it like crazy with the garden hose. It will weigh a ton wet but I luckily have a low concrete wall nearby that I can drape it on for drying. A sawhorse or fence or anything will work to let it drip/air dry. Obviously this works best and fastest when it's hot and sunny outside. This cleans it way, way better than the indoor method with the carpet shampoo and the vacuuming.

I found these rugs at Walmart a few weeks ago for $16 each. They are 60 x 30 inches. A brown one for My Gretsch and a black one for my Rhythm Traveler.
Black rugs are hard to find! They are thin but durable for a good price.
I also found the stick on silver letters that are on my bass drum at Walmart in the auto department for $8. There are two of each letter plus two of each number 0 through 9 in the package plus many other shapes.

Reviving this thread ... I'm looking for a drum rug. My band practices in a garage with a concrete floor, and my hi-hat and kick are sliding away like crazy. Plus I'd like something between my kick and the concrete.

I checked on the rug backing mat sold by Nigosian Rug Co, they don't seem to still be in business (shopping cart doesn't work and mail bounces). There are some relatively cheap Oriental rugs online at Overstock.com but they're 0.625" thick, which is kind of plush. So I'm leaning towards an actual drum rug, even though they're crazy expensive. Right now I'm thinking Meinl (too bad they're ugly) or Protection Racket. PR also makes some rug markers which is pretty cool.

Any thoughts?

I still like the oriental rugs. I went to a music expo recently looking at bags, cases and the like, including rugs. While the pro rugs were interesting, they were so expensive I couldn't justify changing from my current inexpensive rug.
I hit flea markets, go remnant scrounging at carpet stores, ask everyone I know if they have a carpet they want to get rid of.
And I find the thickness helps the stiffness and maintains a flat surface, even if put over uneven risers, stages with lots of badly-run cable, etc. Also, every rug is different, and some are lighter than others. Finding a good 5'x7' that's light, sturdy, keeps your kit in place, and is complimentary to your kit's color and style shouldn't be too hard.
Plus, if I forget my rug at a gig, it's only $10 down the tubes instead of $150 or whatever that some of the larger pro rugs would cost.

The rug they sell at Home Depot/Lowes is good. It's pretty light, rolls out flat, and it will hold tape marks just fine. Pretty cheap per foot too.
I've seen the rugs Bob is talking about, and if the kit or most of it fit, it's a decent choice too.
PR and Ahead rugs are probably worth the money if you are not someone who would forget to take it off the stage after a set.

I have the one by Nigosian. The company is about 5 miles from my work. Nice people.The sons are drummers, and they had a special coating put on the rubber backed pad.
They tried marketing it about 15 years ago (ads in MD and all that), but the cost was more than people would spend by the time shipping was involved.

It is however, the most awesome rug for drums E-VER. Things DO NOT move on this thing.
Too bad they don't sell them anymore :-( :-(
I bought the last two 6x8 pieces they'd sell going on 2 years ago, but, I asked for more stuff 3 years before that! It was on a giant roll in a truck, so they weren't going to get it out. Finally they did.
It didn't sell, so I don't blame them for not wanting to deal with a roll in a truck, off site....but yeah, it took me 5 years to get more haha!
They last me many years, so I figured it was a good $100 investment for the 2 pieces.
I would have bought more, but they chopped it up into smaller pieces for people to use like kitchen Chef mats. Booooo!

Edit: I scrolled down and saw Fussion's post, and holy cow, it's been 3 years since I got those two pieces!! Fussion is near me, great guy, and I sent him over there. He's since stopped playing--other things in life to do. Say's he doesn't miss the gigging at all, and will pick up a pair of sticks once in a great while.

Default Re: The best drum rug..

And reviving again to say I got the Protection Racket rug on a Black Friday deal and it's pretty good. Thicker than the Crash Pad I had a while back, thinner than a real rug. It's like a huge welcome mat. Stiff when rolled up. I was a bit skeptical because it still slid a bit on the garage's stone floor when I rolled it out (the 'gel' backing feels more like rubber) but once I got the kit on it, it was rock solid. I keep my bass spurs out but the hat stand only has rubber feet ... didn't budge. Looks nice, too.

Minor complaint: the carrying bag is sold separately, is pricey, and is just a big ad for PR with poorly-placed handles (holding them doesn't keep the rug level, making it awkward to carry) but oh well.

Wzup Guys,

I've invented a product that solves bass drum creep and hi-hat/double kick pedal creep at the same time, on any and all floors!

The website for it is: www.kicklock.com

The site is only two weeks old and I've just started to promote it. There are a couple of good demonstration videos on the site. More videos will be added soon, as recent customers complete personal & endorsement videos for the website.

It works flawlessly, installs easy, stays attached during transport, and is very inexpensive!


Right now I'm giving away a very limited quantity of FREE KickLocks for promotion. If you contact me through the email

link on the site I may be able to get one out to you one before the promo is over.


Keep your groove with a KickLock,

Willie :)

^ that's interesting!

If you have a Home Goods in the area, check there for giant killer rugs for cheap. Home Goods is like the Ross for furniture, etc.

I bought this enormous shaggy rug there about a year ago. It's just big enough, and my boxer blends into it. The cymbals are ps'd because I wanted a layout of what I wanted.

At first, I thought the dog was some kind of odd-shaped, exotic drum throne, before I realized it's just a dog who likes drums and got caught in the shot! I have to admit though, there was a brief moment between those thoughts where it seemed like you were using a stuffed dog for a throne, haha.
