    If you need to go absolutely silent, well the low volume cymbals are quiet but not silent. However they are truly low volume. My wife can talk on the phone in the other room 20 feet away from me...

    Nice! Mid priced quality gear is a great option. Honestly you rarely 'need' more.

    I agree. I can't see Pearl discontinuing a highly popular series, at least not without replacing it with a new model. It seems like a lot of people like the idea of birch, but the sales must not be...

    The mesh isn't quite the same as playing on normal heads but it's way better than nothing and I love that I can play almost anytime without annoying anyone. An unforeseen benefit is that you can hear...

    I would try mesh heads. I use them in a duplex situation and it works totally fine. With rubber pads you don't have resonance, but you have the attack of the stick on the pad. With mesh you get a...

    So I bought the silentstroke heads and have been playing with them for a while. They are a great solution to quiet practice! I put a patch on the bass head which gives a nice bit of attack and the...

    The drums look great! When you can pull off a nice finish design it really makes the drums stand out from the off the rack finishes. Enjoy!

    I have a full set of them on. They feel somewhat like an electric mesh head, yes. The feel I think is a bit better because you are playing full sized drums, not 8" pads. There is some tone produced,...

    I haven't got the l80s yet. I'm hoping to order them in a month or so. The silentstroke heads are working fantastically.

    I think pairing them with these https://www.long-mcquade.com/61427/Drums/Cymbals/Zildjian/L80_Low_Volume_468_Box_Set.htm will do really nicely for quiet practice.
