Question about drum mutes..
« Reply #28 on: October 12, 2007, 12:05:44 AM »
mga sir may tatanong lang po ako..
nagbabalak po kasi ako na bumili ng kit, kaso the problem is yung malakas na sound na manggagaling dito. ang malas ko kasi not in favor ang family ko sa ingay ng drums (ingay ang tawag nila eh)..

My question is, talaga bang effective yung Drum Mutes?
As in gaano ba talaga kahina or mababawas sa tunog? Or talaga bang mamu-mute yung drums na parang hindi na tunog drums?
kasi kung konting lang ang hinina eh baka malabo na talaga ko magka kit..

i hope someone can help me..frustrated na talaga ko magka kit..di ko alam kung possible ba talaga ng makapalo ako sa bahay ng walang ingay.. thanks in advance..

effective ang drum mutes para sakin. mas malakas lang tunog niya ng konti sa practice pad.

audible ang sound pero hindi maingay. except lang siguro sa bass drum, depende din yun sa bigay ng paa mo at muffling ng drum.

para sa batter side. Dikitan mo lang ng tatlong 6" to 8" long na packing tape sa ibabaw para mag resonate ng konti. Mas maraming tape, mas malakas ang tunog. Medyo tricky ang pag totono nito pero makukuha mo din.
Mas maganda sya kesa mute pads, dahil nagba-bounce pa din yung stick, so natural ang feel ng drums. Yun nga lang, pag gagamitin mo sa gig yung kit mo, kelangan mo pang magpalit ng skin.

Sa cymbals, ok lang yung mute pads na dinidikit. o kaya takpan mo lng ng tela.

PM na lang kung may tanong ka pa.

Goodluck!  :-)

nababawasan ng mutes ang sound pero not totally... depende din sa tolerance nung mga kasama sa bahay.. kasi ako kahit na practice pad ang gamit ko, hindi na-to-tolerate nung mga kasama ko sa bahay... so at times i end up practicing somewhere na kulob, malayo or walang tao (sa may bakuran, sa ibabaw ng bubong, etc...)..

ang ginagamit ko ngayon ay practice pads (para sa snare, toms and kick). Ang madalas malakas at nararamdaman nila ay yung sa pedal hits (unless feathering technique ang gagawing practice or gagamit nung hansen futz or hindi gagamit ng pedal pero tap lang ung foot)

from my experience, ang mabilis maka-irita sa mga kasama ko ay yung mga kalansing (sibilants from ride, hihats, crash -- basically cymbals). Un kasing bass/kick/low frequencies, hindi sila masyadong na-i-irita kasi more of "nararamdaman" sya..

Sa pagkaka-alam ko high frequencies travel shorter than low frequencies kaya kapag relatively malayo ung nakikinig sayo, without any amplification, mas maririnig/mararamdaman nila ung low frequencies/bass kaysa dun sa high frequencies (cymbals, etc).. Kaya sa practice, kung medyo malayo ung mga kasama sa bahay, mas madalas ang naririnig/nararamdaman ay ung low frequencies compared dun sa high frequencies..

hehe sobrang ok yung pads! dinig ko parin kahit papano yung individual sound characteristics ng mga drums; hindi siya tulad lang ng practice pad na iisa lang yung tunog kahit ano pa paluin mo, so in a way, pwede ka parin makagawa ng bagong ideas, grooves, etc. ayos din yung mutes ng cymbals. ok na ok tong mga mutes para sa mga bawas ang practice time kapag daylight. trade-off lang talaga yung konting bawas sa bounce, pero hindi naman masyadong nakaka-apekto sa playing. hindi naman ako mag-blablastbeat magdamag e. :D

hello everyone...
i would just like to share my experience with my drum mutes Vic Firth Drum Mutes....actually the Vic Firth Drum Mutes are pretty good good stick response, but the main issue for me is the bass drum mute...this is because the adhesive of the bass drum is small (parang didouble-sided tape velcro circle... isang parte kinakabit mu sa bass drum batter skin at ung kabila nasa mute itself ) the problem with this is that i use masking tape to fix the mutes in place (nahuhulog kasi pag nagdodouble peds na ako) as for the mutes for the toms and snare...their ok occasionally nahuhulog sila kung nakatilt yung toms mu, but ayun masking tape ulit hahahahahaha...lastly the cymbal mutes the triangular rubber mutes...their fixed to the cymbals via the clamp of the cymbals itself,the response is ok...ayun...the Vic Firth Drum Mutes are a good buy for me, and with its sound muffling capability...i can play all night long....well maybe not past 10pm but nevertheless still worth it for me...hahahahahaha

Bro, im just thinking the same thing. at first ung bass ko eh wala pang unan, medyo sama ng tunog na malakas na parang may echo. nung nilagyan ko ng unan, medyo naging buo na ung tunog. sa toms naman, same thing na para ding may echo, ask ko lang kung ok ba din ung unan or clothes lng? effective ba ung cloth sa cymbals? any other alternative for this? thanks  :-D

Hi guys,

naghahanap ako ng sabian snare/tom quiet tone. May ma-r-recommend ba kayong online store na nag-s-ship internationally. Na-check ko yung mga links dito sa thread kaso lahat sila ay either restricted (to ship int'lly) or walang ganung product.

Nakita ko so far na meron is yung wbww.com Meron na ba sa inyong may experience sa shop na to? sa Ebay at amazon palang ako nakasubok bumili. Wala naman akong naging problema so far, kaya lang wala naman yung item na hinahanap ko. :-)

Anybody here who has hands-on experience with DW's Smart Practice DeadHead Practice Pads?

http://www.dwdrums.com/smartpractice/deadhead.htm

I've seen these pads on display at Lyric stores.  They're pretty expensive, but they look nice.  I just hope that somebody here can share any feedback or comment about these products.

A four-piece Deadhead pad set for drums (10, 12, 13 & 14" sizes) cost around Php5300.

A set of cymbal Deadheads cost around Php2200.

A bass drum Deadhead kit costs around Php2200.


It's that expensive.  That's why I'm hoping to read some feedback about it, before I decide to gamble on it.

I've tried the HQ percussion hihat mutes -- yung bagong rev na kung saan may nakaoverlap na flap sa ilalim nung top hat.. Ok sya, malaki ung bawas dun sa sound, relatively konting konti lang ang nabawas sa feel nung hihat.  Wala nang tunog metal kapag pinapalo mo. Makakarinig ka lang ng metal sound kapag may open close movement ka sa paa (full open, partially open and splashing) kasi hindi buong edge nung top hat eh covered. I guess siguro kung lalagyan ng rubber sa pagitan ng top and bottom hat mawawala yon.

I like this compared dun sa ibang mutes kasi hindi halos rubber ang feel..

yung ganito ang nasubukan ko:

I just thought that I need a set of silencer/mute pads.  I don't have a sound-reinforced room at home, I don't want people around me to go nuts, and I have a sister who sleeps during the day because of her graveyard shift.  Yet I still want to be productive with my woodshedding.  The silencers/mutes would be very practical for me.

I have the impression that the DW Deadheads may be the closest in resembling the actual feel and rebound of a tensioned drumhead, while maintaining low volume levels without sacrificing the actual feel of the drumkit.  Any more alternatives?

The HQ mutes look nice too...

Check out this Akira Jimbo clip -
feature=related

the title of the video says it all, but what really struck me about the clip is the way Akira jimbo muffled his drums. What he did was he clipped felt strips to the rim of his toms. The strips freely bounce on the batter head so they don't choke the drums as much as stick on dampeners do. Check out the 37 sec. mark of the video for a clear view of how he muffled his toms

I do a similar thing to my floor toms to regulate sustain. I put small pieces of cloth, fastened to a lug by a twine wire, and put the hanging cloth on the head. It does the similar bouncing motion that Jimbo's felt strips has. Result is the heads ring fully once you hit it, but decays as the cloths bounce back, as if you're gating your drums.

Here's a pic with the strips of cloth in the "off" position (hehe). Look towards the left, sa floor toms.
