    Drum solos

    Thinking of picking up the guitar

    Drum platform to stop noise travelling through the floor

    Hey you lot. I've recently moved into a second floor flat and I'm now stuck with a wee noise problem, my downstairs neighbor can now hear my bass drum pedals through the floor. It's not ridiculously loud but I think I should do something about it. So I did a search on here, and there are posts...
