Do you guys know of any lighter sticks or other hardware short of using brushes that would tame the volume level of the upper kit? (snare, toms, etc.} The kick level is fine. thanx

Plexi-glass? ... I don't imagine that helped you much though.

I'll be watching the responses, because I bet I have a similar issue when my kit lands in the music room :(

I`ve seen those partitions that isolate a drummer at various casinos around here, but that would be a last resort I`m afraid!! LOL

+1 on Hot Rods or Lightning Rods. They work well to bring the volume down. Good to practice with too.

Are those a super light version of sticks? (forgive me, I`m a gitarslinger)

Hot Rods are about 20 small dowels bound together to make a stick like drum beating device louder than brushes but softer than sticks. Lightning Rods are the same type of things but with fewer but larger dowels, a bit louder with a little more attack. They are made by ProMark.

Vick Firth also has a similar doweled stick called a Tala Wand with fewer small dowels with a foam core. These are a little whippy in feel but sound really great.

You can make them yourself with birch dowel, shrink tubing, and a couple of rubber caps for the butt end.

No, but if I see a pair, I'll be interested to see how they play. I play in plenty of low volume situations. Thanks for posting the info.
