Default New acoustic treatment.

Who needs acoustic foam??

Since I retired from ice hockey this year, due to injury. <*sobs*> I took SOME of my jerseys, and put them in the "drum room" today...

There are about 60 hanging... I have another 25-30 I have to break out of storage...

I really need to invest in carpets & ceiling tiles!! (and a real stand for that china..)

There are ceiling tiles down the center. Does that count?

Going to drywall the whole thing soon.

Got me. I think it's like figure skating. I only showed up for the spiffy shirts.

Us Canadians sort of like it...

As to the OP, I hate to be the one to inform you, but your drum kit is, well, backwards ;)

Doesn't seem backwards to me. It's everyone else's that are backwards.

Ah, yes, the thing where they bat a stale biscuit around on the ice!

I kid. We've actually got a minor league team here in Houston and I've been to a few games. Just being able to tell who is on offense or defense at any given time takes some work. It was fun, though.

Yes I understand they support the sport wholeheartedly.

It cracks me up how much people will pay for that Auralex foam. Yikes! What a ripoff!

My father in law still plays hockey. He has quite a few guys from SEAL team 6 on his team. Kudos to those who do play. I am from up north but never got into hockey.

Drumming has really helped in the transition away from playing hockey 3-5 nights per week.

But it's dramatically less social than playing for 3 teams, and I think that is making it a bit more difficult.

I'd need to find a pack of musicians, who are into crappy music, and don't mind jamming with a beginner. ...and like drinking a beer or six during those jams.
