    The topic sounds weird coz it is....

    I stay in an apartment and yes my neighbours have started to complain about the noises. I wonder if its the sound or the vibrations or both....

    I am sure that some other people would have had similar experiences and would be able to help me out...

    Do you guys know about some mats that could probably absorb the vibrations or other methods that could help in my situation?

    I always like to say...

    Thanks,

        I made one of these and it silenced the heck out of the kick. Mine was 4 foot by 5 foot. Work perfectly.

        By the way, where are you located, cause I need to get rid of it! (I have my own house now so noise is not a problem)

            I am in San Francisco, CA. If you are in West Virginia, it seems close to impossible to get it to me...

            If you have an option, I am open...

              Was my biggest concern when I bought and waited for the kit to arrive. Now that it's here, I bought a bunch of firm foam gym mats, stacked two on top of each other and no complaints so far. I also doubled a thin towel and wrapped it tightly around the bass drum head, which doesn't seem to interfere much wiht my playing (probably slightly, but if anyhting is making my leg stronger) and really cuts the noise out. Then again, my neighbours might just be polite.

              My personal take (and from most of my friends) is that it doesn't exceed any kind of decibel level, so as long as you play at reasonable (or agreed) times, the neighbour can't actually do anything. Then again, if they're just mean people or hate drummers, could be ugly. My girlfriend plays her violin and it's ten times as loud as the drums, but that seems socially acceptable.

                Same with somebody playing piano for hours. I think i can probably get away with it but this seems to keep the piece

                  Hey Bob,
                  What kind of a mat is that. Could you describe it a bit. It seems pretty interesting....

                    i have this
                    http://truesoundcontrol.com/products...FQJtFQodfjARkw

                    got it for $200, dunno if this site is a rip off or they raised the price or maybe I paid 300 and thought it was only 200. anyway it is enough to have two layers criss crossed and a piece of plywood and a crappy carpet on top. I think it helps, but I only play during the day, so my neighbor below might not mind.
