I live in an apartment and recently bought a Yamaha dtxtreme III. Luckily I live on the bottom floor and have no one under me, however the drums are facing a wall that I share with my neighbors. The pads sound like I'm hitting a phone book and the kick drum has a bit more bass to it, what I would love to do is hang up some of these curtains (http://www.moverssupplies.com/catalog/product/view/id/141/s/vb-73g/category/92/) and block out as much of the sound as possible for them.
I realize I am being paranoid about this, and even went as far as to talk to them about it and they are really cool about the drums, however I have been in their shoes and want to maintain as good of a relationship as possible with them!
Is this a reasonable way of doing this? The blankets say they have a NRC rating of .8, and they weigh about 11lbs each, I would love to get 6 of them and hang them in a square around my drums so I could play late into the evening.
