Shield the drum set with a drum screen. Drum screens, also called drum shields, are composed of several tall sheets of clear plastic that are hinged together. These screens can be arranged to surround a drum set partially or completely, significantly lowering the volume of the drums. These screens are useful in performance, recording, and practice settings.
Drum sets are one of the loudest musical instruments available. Unlike many electrified instruments (such as the electric guitar), it cannot be muted with the use of headphones or through un-amplified play. Learning how to make a drum set quieter is an essential process when playing a drum set in a shared house or apartment complex. There are several methods of doing this, ranging in expense, effort required, and effectiveness. These methods can be used in conjunction or on their own.
