  • Rooms Size

    I am building a small studio in my gerage and plan to build a sperate room for drums.

    My space is VERY limited. How large do I have to make the room for a drum kit?

    Large enough for you and the kit to fit in there.

      I've been to a small studio where the room had to be no bigger than 5x8, maybe smaller from what I can remember. Had the kit (Pintechs not V's about the same footprint though, all pads no cymbals) facing right up to the back wall. You basically opened the door to sit down and closed it behind you. A bit claustrophobic but it worked. I definitely would'nt shoot for anything smaller.

      Don't know if this helps, it just reminded me . You are talking edrums

        I like a 10 X 10 area so things don't feel too cramped. I wouldn't go less than 8 x 8.

              Same reason you use them on acoustics. So the rest of the band can tell drummer jokes

                  hmm.. I have a pintech/td-8 system, 4 toms, 13" snare, 4 yamaha cymbal pads, double pedal + upright kick pad, auxillary upright kick pad w/single pedal, and music stand in a 4'x4' space including the throne and room for me to play.. Heh.. it's a dorm room But it works fine for me, infact I like the toms really close to each other, more speed, less twisting/reaching. It definately doesn't feel cramped when I am playing.

                    There's a big difference in "room size" and "footprint". 10 x 10 would be the absolute minimum for electric drums and even that would give me the heebie jeebies after a while. An amp cranked up would be considered masochistic. Acoustic drums in the same environment? Huh, what did you say, can't hear you.

                    Looks like I have turned into old fart after all! 30 years ago, I would have thought 10 x 10 was paradise.

                    Kit Pic 1 Kit Pic 2 Kit Pic 3... And FOR SALE I have: 3 PD-9's, MDS-10 purple rack w/cables/pad and cym mounts. See classified posts for details or PM me.

                      How does this response help him dial in his room for his needs?

                        I would suggest a small sound proofed room for the amps which would be mic'd and then all of band members share a common room for playing. That room could also act as a vocal booth (and then the rest of the band can tell singer jokes).

                            What's the problem here? When I want a bigger drum room I go to Ambience>Room Size and twist the dial!?



                            Actually, wouldn't it be good if you could actually do that to your house???
