Drum Silencers & Mutes / Drum Muffling Thread *merged*
« on: September 08, 2006, 09:59:57 PM »
Hey fellow drummers, just wondering if u know where to buy mutes for the drum set. Or any easy and cheap alternatives. its kind of a hassle making alot of sound where i live. hehe  :D

Btw I used a mouse pad for my practice pad and just glued it on a hard bound book. seems to work fine..

THnx!


power in numbers!!!

A number of manufacturers offer drumset mutes/silencers.  Here are some examples...

Or perhaps you can try any of those mesh drumheads.  I haven't tried that yet; but they say that one can get the feel of a real drumhead.  And it's silent, which is perfect for noiseless practice.  The only downside, I think, is when you're gonna use mesh heads on a drumkit that you normally use on gigs or rehearsal, you need to replace the mesh heads with real drumheads, which takes some time and effort.

^ Yes! Mesh drumheads. Pearl Mufflehead,yun ang gamit ko sa bahay.Ok ang feel nya kasi pwede mo i-adjust.

One trick na ginawa ko sa kit ko,
I kept the resonant head intact at nakatono,tapos mufflehead yung lahat ng batter.Nilagyan ko ng ilang strip ng packing tape(parang scotch tape na malapad) yung ibabaw ng batter para mag resonate yung drums.Ngayon may tunog sya pero mahina.
Yung cymbals naman,dinikitan ko tissue tissue paper. Yung Hi-hat,nilagyan ko ng telang makapal na hugis bilog na may butas sa gitna,either ilagay mo sa pagitan o sa ibabaw ng hats,ok.
Yung mga cowbell at woodblock sinalpakan ko ng tela at papel.
Ok yung setup ko kasi wala naman akong band na ka-jam. :cry:
So Be It.

Tip ko lang, kung me pang gastos ka din lang naman, bumili ka ng "mumurahin" na snare drum tapos palitan mo yung batter head ng Pearl Muffle head. Yun ang isalpak mo sa kit mo pag mag ppractice ka ng rudiments,etc. Malaki advantage nito para ma develop yung proper posture mo kesa ipatong mo sa lamesa o kama yung practice pad at dun ka mag practice.
So Be It.

i have the vic firth mute pads on my kit...i find it very useful kasi ipapatong mo lang sa kit mo this is a big help if you wanted to practice pero late na at ayaw mo makaisortbo sa kapitbahay..yung bounce nandun pa rin pero syempre wala na yun noise..antony dio was able to try this when he visited sa drum room ko sa bahay..hehe...ganda ng paintings ko noh dio hehe :mrgreen:

ako ganito,

sa snare ko, pinapatong ko ung practice pad ko. maganda dito, rinig parin yung snares.
sa bass, lalagyan ko ng pillows ung loob, tapos isang towel na nakatupi sa labas, kung saan tumatama ung beater. mga 90% reduction. :)
sa toms ko, meron akong mga HQ sound off, na parang rubber thingy. un talaga, patay na patay ang tunog. actually lagyan mo lang ng kumot or any cloth ok na.

sa cymbals nakabalot sila ng t-shirt.

tada! murang mura. :-D
