that's another way of doing it, nice! beautiful kit btw!! I haven't tried this method of muffling yet, but it really does look promising. Tomorrow I'll find time to try this out
I think this is the most excited I've ever been to go to carolinas (fabric store) and national bookstore  :-)

I remember when I was at a loss on what to use for muffling because I was out of money.
I resorted to the "patong panyo" technique and it worked so well that I still use it
to this day.

ok yun,.. piliin mo lang yung tape na gagmitin mo ,.. dahil maraming tape na nakakapag palagkit ng surface pag naalis na

ok din kaya lang masyadong magaang yung tissue baka minimal lang yung effect. unless malaking piraso ng tissue yung lagay mo. kahit anong cloth puede naman. tried the felt approach...yung nasa video ni akira jimbo. ok yung effect! total cost, around P200 me sobra pang felt at clips. puede pa adjust yung size ng felt strip na me contact sa head

Drum Mute
« Reply #55 on: January 28, 2012, 12:54:37 PM »
Tanung lang about drum mutes lalo na yung para sa cymbals. di ba nakakasira ng tunog ng cymbals yun. kasi I'm planning to buy a set of cymbals para magamit sa gig. pero kapag practice sa bahay balak ko gumamit ng mute. Thanks

effective to for me. ilang kapitbahay ko rin ang napatulog ko ng mahimbing dahil gumamit ako nito. ang ayoko lang dito, kapag medyo matagal na, nakakadumi ng drum head. i took out my old drum mutes para isalpak ko ulit dun sa set ko, ilang araw lang, andumi na agad. <_<

how about the cymbals sir di ba sya nakakasira ng cymbals or pumapangit na tunog ng cymbals kapag wala na mute.

iirc, mga 3.5k ata bili ko dito dati perfect pitch. not sure mgkano na siya ngayon.

hindi rin siya nakakasira ng cymbals or nkakapangit ng tunog after tanggalin. they are just soft rubber pads that dampen the sound. for me, di rin siya nakakasira ng dynamics sa palo as it still kinda feels like a normal drum head.

Muffling Alternatives to Moon gel, duct tape, and tissue with masking tape
« Reply #60 on: February 12, 2012, 11:26:15 AM »
I tried experimenting on these and have gotten great results:

1.  Elmers glue - apply them on the skin, spread it across the areas you wanna muffle.  Get a hair dryer and dry it up (but do not stick it close to the skin to avoid disfiguration to the head)
2.  paper clip and a small piece of paper - Akira Jimbo does this very nicely.  -
3.  Read somewhere here that some adhesive material that forms like clay works well...

Any more suggestions?

May naka-gamit na po ba ng Lazer drum mutes dito? ok po ba as in totally muted ba talaga ang sound ng drum kit? Mas mura kasi kesa dun sa Vic Firth drum mute, around 1K plus daw nung tumawag ako e....thanks.

meron bang tried and tested na drum mute na hindi napudpod? kasi yung vater ko after some time e napupudpod siya tapos yung rubber bits na natatagal dumikit sa rims,pedal atbp at ang hirap linisin ng sahig ko after a week.. baka mag electronic na lang ako pag hopeless nako.  :-(
plus yung bass drum mute ko e after 6 months e humiwalay na dun sa foam. :-o

Hi mga Sir!

I'm planning to buy a drum mute for my kit. Just wanna up this thread for more advice since this topic has not been posted for a while now. :) what are the best buys? Pro's and con's? Best alternatives?, etc.. I'm seeking for a mute that will not suffice the real feel of the drums (if that's possible  :-D). Probably, edrums is my last resort. Thanks everyone!

Pag drum mutes, automatic sacrificed ka agad ang feel. Kung gusto mo pwede ka bumili ng mesh heads are sa batters mo, yun walang tunog at parang edrums na rin ang feel

Nice! I'll try those mesh batters. Yun nga lang medyo mahirap mag switch from acoustic sound to muted. Hehe.. Di po ba siya madaling masira? I've watched some vids from youtube, it looks like stockings pag malayo. Lol. Thank you sir!

When you use mesh heads, kailangan nylon tips yung gamit mo na sticks. Pag wood kasi tapos nagssplinter na yung tip, sasabit sa mesh at malaking gulo yun.

Yung mesh naman gawa sya sa woven plastic fibers so matibay sya :)

Pero tama ka, it's feel vs convenience. Ayos din naman yung regular rubber mutes, lalakas yung single strokes mo :lol:

Best Buys?
-Vic Firth Mutes will do. Not really the best, coz as stated above, the feel would be greatly compromised. AND, it won't be muted at all.

Cons.
-Different feel. Bounce would be greatly affected.
-There's still sound produced. It's inevitable. Of course, you're hitting something. (watch youtube vids with regards to mutes used)
-It may slip, so adhesives are advisable.
-It may soon wore out.
-Expensive.

Pros.
-Minimized sound. Not totally mute at all, but decibels are lessened.
-You're actually playing your actual kit. The height adjustments will never be compromised.
-You can play anytime you want without annoying the people around you that much.

Best alternatives?
-None at all. BUT, 12'' Practice Pad and Gibraltar's Bass Drum Practice Pad will somehow help you hone your playing skills, range of motions, muscle strength, muscle memory and the likes. Another thing, these two pads are less expensive compared to the mute pads.

Thanks for your input guys! Very helpful!!

@musicianurse28: I agree with those practice pads. Actually, that's my first option. But I really wanted sana at least my 2toms (as you've said about the height thing). Pero mas mukhang mapapamahal ata ako dun. Hahah. Kaya drum mute yung naisip ko. But after these reviews, mukhang negative kase gusto ko din talaga mapractice ung ghost notes and double strokes ko lalo sa pedal. That's also the reason why I want to maximize my playing time.  :drool:

Kung naiingayan pa rin ba, o kaya kung nasa kabilang kwarto sila naririnig pa ba, o kaya kung nakasara pinto rinig pa rin ba, mga ganyan.. Thanks sir! Your response will be highly appreciated. Thanks
