Default My wife is the greatest!!

Hello everyone,

Well I get home tonight and pull into my garage and I am utterly stunned. For my anniversary, my wife decided to sound proof my garage! It is HIGH quality sound board and absorbs sound extremely well.

So after completely freaking out, I decided to go into my drum room to grab my snare and hit it in the garage to see the difference.

As I walk into my drum room, she had also had that room sound proofed with the same material!

When I finally did get into the garage to bang on my snare, the room was almost completely dry!!!! It used to be an echo chamber! It was so hard to get a good sound. I have band practice 3 times this week (Wed, Thurs and Friday) and I just cannot wait.

My drum room is very dry as well. And, you can hear the bass a lot more. Not so much treble now.

Anyway, I had tears in my eyes. My wife is the GREATEST!!!!!!!

Here are pics of the sound board. My wife is having them painted within the next couple of weeks.

I am the luckiest guy in the world!!!!

Mike

...congrats and Happy anniversary.

Sounds like the snare won't be the only thing you will be banging tonight.

Baz, that might be THE best line I have ever read on this site.

Unfortunately, no action at all until Thursday. Wife and I are working on a kid and haven't had much luck. I have to give a "sample" on Thursday. Complete abstinence for 5 FRIGGIN DAYS.

I am dying.

But, I wish I could. She is a great lady and totally shocked me with this one.

...well at least you get to test fire it before you deploy it.

Once again, congrats and good luck with the conception.

That's great! Much better practise time and much less noise for the neighbours, a win-win situation... Your wife is great indeed! Having a wife / girlfriend who supports your drumming passion is a blessing!

I can sympathise, my wife has been on complete bedrest since Feb 15th, due to a complicated pregnancy, we haven't been able to do anything for 4 months now :(

On the plus side, congrats on the room, always great to have a supportive wife. Mine bought me a set of Gretsch for my B-day in december.

Mikei, I think you owe your wife some in the practise room. I'm talking John Bonham volume stuff here.

Happy anniversary man, good luck with the conception! Very happy for you both!

Well, Mikei, you may need to soundproof the bedroom, too. At least after the weapons testing phase is complete.

Good for you for giving your wife props for all her support. My wife suprised me with my kit (which I thought I'd be a widower before I had drums of my own). Lovely ladies, the both of them.

Good luck with the conception. Not to lord my accomplishments over you, but I am apparently a sniper: one shot, one kill. We got two kids 2 and half years apart on the first try each time. For your sake, I hope all is in order and you just have to keep practicing your bedroom rudiments!! This exercise works for me: single stroke, single stroke, double stroke, double stroke, and then Flam, Flam, thank you Ma'am!!

My god, that was funny.

I have 2 kids from a prior relationship, so the pistol used to work. But I am 9 years older and was 50lbs heavier.

I have recently lost 70lbs, so I am more fit. I am hoping that my "count" is much better.

I may not be that great at drum rudiments, but I am pretty well versed in bedroom rudiments. And if I had to choose to be better at one than the other, I believe I have it the right way!!

9 years old?! I think we've found the solution to your problem. Now to find one to explain the other kids....

That is indeed a great score, your wife sounds like a gem. I would, however like to challenge you on having a gal that rocks equally as hard.

So far, my GF has gotten me an American Standard Fender Telecaster, Taylor 314CE, Line 6 Spider Valve 212, Gretsch Renown Maples, Zildjian A Customs & very recently(Father's Day), Taylor Made r7 golf irons.

It's a good thing to have such a woman, huh? Continue to cherish her.

Yes, do not take advantage of and give back to them in every way.

Hey drummerworld moderators.

Sorry if this thread has gotten outta hand. I will do a better job of keeping things "on topic".

I apologize if I have offended anyone.

I agree!! I get more satisfaction from drumming vicariously through Neil Peart than doing bedroom rudiments vicariously through Ron Jeremy. (My apologies for now making it possible to get results from a forum search for "Ron Jeremy")

...I don't know.

My drumming is a lot like my high school sex life. Heavy on the fantasy, lots of rushing and dragging, much more fun with others, but mostly solo.

sorry for dragging this thread back to the depths, but a punch line is a terrible thing to waste.

No apologies needed Barry. For improvement in both drum and bedroom rudiments, one resource, two words:
