Default "Silent" (dramatically reduced sound) practice

Hello - anyone out there using SoundOff (HQ), Deadheads (DW), etc? I'm looking for pads to put on top of my kit to make my practice sessions 'silent' (quotes, as I've used these in the past (can't recall which brand), and they aren't really silent).
Any recommendations? I'd rather not mess with changing to mesh heads...I have electronic drums...just looking for brand recommendations.

In other news (doesn't warrant its own post..yet)...just picked up a 20 K Custom Dry Ride. I love it!!



Thanks!

Default Re: "Silent" (dramatically reduced sound) practice

Hello mate- I hope this helps a little- I use unbranded rubber silent pads, got a full set from Ebay- they are superb for noise reduction and you still get the feel and bounce. You can get various set ups, Rock, fusion etc and extra cymbal pads too. I paid around 20.oo for them- Branded run at around 70 ish in the UK. I only use them now and then when I get the urge for additional practice. You can hear the reso head slightly thats all buts its fine and wont upset the locals..least mine are cool- or scared of me! So either way- no complaints!!! Lol
