  • Just bought TD9sx and JBLs

    Hello forum,
    i bought the td9sx and the jbl g2's. i am stoked on both of them. i played acoustic druums for ten years, until i moved to newport beach and got an appartment. I play in a band and use the drums for studio and eventually maybe for shows. i practice 2 hours a day, take lessons once a week, and have band practice 2 times a week. drumming is one of the only things i can get lost in, and really be myself when i am playing. i also like snowboarding, skateboarding, beer, and pizza. My one dilema is that my neighbor downtairs can still hear my banging when i practice. I have the bass pedal right on a load bearing wall that goes to her unit,(could be a problem) and the floor is only linoleum. Any ideas on soundproofing even more so i can practice all hours? Thank you fellow drummers.
    Roland TD-9sx, JBL EON152G(2)

        Welcome to the forum. Definitely move the pedal away from the party wall if you can, but it won't fully solve it. Bruce has given you the link for that, but search for sound deadening on the forum for many more ideas.

              Welcome, and stop teasing us here in the UK (5 Degrees Celsius below zero & dropping) with your choice of location

              If the 'balls' solution doesn't grab you try 2 layers of 1 inch thick duct foam stuck to each other (make sure to get the adhesive-backed variant!) then 1 inch plywood on top followed by carpet and a rug. Cheap, easy to source/fabricate and works very well for me

                  Out of curiosity, did you cover the entire bottom of the platform in the foam tape?

                    I did although subsequent reading up on the subject makes me think it might have been better to have the duct foam strategically placed in the corners rather than the whole area for better absorption.
