Setting Up Your Drum Room Setting Up Your Drum Room 7 comments on “Setting Up Your Drum Room” Brian says: April 24, 2018 at 3:14 pm Great information Stephen. Thank you! I look forward to more lessons like this one, especially a soundproofing lesson. Now if you’ll excuse me, i have some furniture to move!

I recently moved and am now finishing a basement for my studio. Unfortunately I have a low ceiling as most basements do but I’ve got to work with what I have. My question is would it be a good idea to put acoustic foam over as much of the ceiling as possible to try to cancel out reflections from it. Thanks Reply Stephen says: May 14, 2018 at 3:16 pm No, I wouldn’t worry with covering the whole ceiling. I would maybe put a few right above the kit, but other than that you can focus on the walls. If you start recording regularly, you will begin to find where you need to adjust things. Reply Daniel says: May 16, 2018 at 2:50 pm Sounds good, thank you! Reply Lisa says: October 23, 2018 at 8:36 pm This may be a very silly question…do you need to do this for electric drum kits? I am assuming not Reply Stephen says: October 30, 2018 at 1:58 pm No silly questions in my book! And no, you would only need to do this for an acoustic drum set. The room layout will really affect how the drums sound inside that room. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
