  • Quiet (night) drumming beaters/sticks

    Hi, I'm trying to find the solution to bring mechanical noise of td30 pads to comfortable-at-night/wife-kids-comatible level. Vic firth fleece beaters are the best way to go so far (with kick drum patch), though they're too large for double pedals (i've got trick drums v-pro and just have not enough space for two vic firth beaters ) so "the circle is not complete" now (trying to find a way to order danmar 209lh to ukraine/or may be vater vintage bomber though it has more noise level than vic firth fleece). Also I want to order vic firth soft touch sticks, but I've read that felt beaters is not the best thing for mesh pads, is it safe to use felt sticks? Any other ways to solve this? Thanks

          You'll need a patch on the head if you use a felt beater. I don't have any experience with felt tipped sticks.

              Rods instead of sticks and kriggs in my experience.

                Kriggs are great for the kick noise problem , never tried the rods

                    Ummm...Hello and welcome to the forums!!!! How about a nice intro with pics in the LOUNGE area? In the future, try to post topics in the relevant section, like this oe could have gone into the SUGGESTIONS or TIPS/TRICKS/TECHNIQUES area. Many more folks actually looking to help out in those areas. This is the Lounge where it's all goof off fun and games. Have fun!
