the CARPET thread
« on: May 13, 2007, 10:48:28 PM »
I did not notice any talks about this which I think plays a big part in drumming.. :wink:

the carpet is a drummers best friend when it comes to playing on concrete floors.. :lol:

how I hated the experience I had when the bass I was using seemed to walk away from me and so did the hihat stand  :x





anyways just wanted to ask you guys what carpet you use? and if anyone knows a good cheap place to get one for our interested forumers.. :lol:

I use those heavy carpets. NEVER buy SOFT carpets, as they wont be sturdy enough to hold the drums in place. Buy those heavy ones. I got mine for less than 3k, the rest are like 17K na. Persian Rugs na kasi.
Anyway, here's a pic of my drumset and my carpet notice that there's another carpet, YAN ANG WAG NYONG BIBILHIN. yung malambot. Go for the heavy ones. And make sure your carpet measurements cover MORE area than your drumset. Dont buy a carpet that could barely cover the entire drum area. Dapat sobra. Wag lang sobrang sobra. lol.

alternative to carpets is rubber matting. just stick some stoppers
in front of the bass drum and another on the hi-hat and you'll drum
away good.

yung vinyl flooring sa room ko very sturdy kaya di ko na need ng carpet, ok nga eh hindi natutuklap ung vinyl, cya ung type na kahit kutsilyo eh hindi basta basta mapepenetrate ung vinyl...

about the carpet, kung no tight budget get one of those rubber mats that can stop your kit from "walking away" from you...

pa share din san may murang carpet hehehe
matututo kaya ako magdrums? kelan kaya iyon...

eto ang pinakamalaking pagkakamali ko nung dinala ko yung set ko sa camp namin. wala siyang carpet. nilagyan ko ng mga shirts sa kick, wala parin. naglalakad talaga yung kick palayo sakin! nakakaiyak talaga.

for carpets, i use them thick and big ones. hindi siya talaga dumudulas. :-)

Tips on finding the right carpet for your kit;

Look for the loop pile type. Ito yung ginagamit sa office interiors; matigas sya at medyo manipis kumpara sa plush pile na malambot at makapal na kalimitan naman na ginagamit pang bahay.

Mas durable ang loop pile kasi pang heavy traffic talaga sya, at mabibili mo sya sa price per square foot.

Make sure theres a fair amount of acrylic coating on its underside.Yun yung parang rubber sa ilalim for traction.

Beware of its smell- most of the of them are stinky due to the materials used. 

Pwede ka din mag inquire sa TAI PING factory outlet dun sa may Sucat, along the south expressway.

Make sure its big enough to accomodate your drum stool . Kasi kung di aabot yung rug sa drum stool,may tendency na  tatakbo pa din yung bass drum mo papalayo.

yun lang. :roll:

Peace!
 :-)

Gaano kalaki? 

Sa Festival Mall sa Alabang, sa 5th floor ata yun, merong 3 x 4 meters.

Punta ka sa Factory ng Tai Ping baka meron.
