What do you use to muffle your bass drum? Does anyone use egg-crate foam? I am probably going to try the Remo muffling system among some other creative things myself.:D

I used to use a pillow but after I cut a hole in my res head I felt the pillow was too much. Now I use an old fleece sweatshirt lightly touching both heads. BOOM!:D

I use an Evans EQ pillow and a small towel rolled up against the front head.

On my 24" kick I use an Evan EMAD batter head with the wide ring. No hole on the front head. On 22" I use an Evan EQ pad with semi-firm pressure on the batter head. On the front of the 22" is an Evan EQ3 head with a 5" hole.

I used pillow that touches the batter only. The front head adds resonance so I just tuned them properly.

Yes, I use the egg-crate foam. It's actually a "bed" that I got from Wal-Mart. It works great, can be cut to any size, and cheap. One piece did three kick drums for under $10.

I have recently lined the inside of my bass drum with the egg-crate foam and it works well enough.
