Oh, the old 'mass murder' suggestion...usually has unfortunate consequences tho...can you get an electric kit in your apartment? I started with electric drums because of neighbours/noise concerns etc
I live in apartment and I don't have space for Drum and even because of neighbors can't bring a kit in my room...
You need an acoustic kit and cymbals for most of that, except recording. There is no satisfactory substitute.Thanks folks for all notes. I have Yamaha Electric Drum at home and practicing daily but there are lots of things to know with the acoustic kit like tuning, recording, knowing and playing with different sort of cymbals all these experiences need a real kit. Isn't it?
How ado you deal with this ?
The Multi-12 is a useful compact multipad needing a lot of tweaking to make the standard drum kits sound better and easier to play. It's been worth the hassle as I can practice day or night in my apartment without disturbing the neighbors.If you don't have space for an e-kit, take a look at something like this:
Sad but true. I only have an acoustic kit and it's really hard to adjust to acoustic kits because I am really lacking for exposure. I did get myself a set of Zildjian's Gen 16 electric acoustic cymbals though and that has really helped with being able to use the hi-hat proficiently, best thing about my ekit setup in my opinion.You need an acoustic kit and cymbals for most of that, except recording.

That's basically what I do. I have a private room that I rent at a rehearsal studio complex. I keep my drums there because there's no way I can play at home without driving at least one person nuts. So during the week l mostly work with the pad and metronome and on weekends and the occasional weekday I'll head to my music room and play the kit.What I'm considering is practicing during the week on physical exercises - e.g. hands, feet and technical motions and then renting a practice space for a couple of hours to tie that all in at the end of a determined period of time.
Life has taken over at the moment but it's my plan.
