I'm a drummer who lives in an apartment. I have an electric set, but it is too noisy and I am receiving complaints. I'm sure this has to do with the pads and the kick pedal. I'd still like to practice at my apartment as I haven't found a way to make extra income to pay rent for a practice space. As an alternative, I'm thinking of a way to mimic a drum set where towels act as drums/pads.
I need some help with this as I'm not sure the best materials to make this. I need to figure out the best materials and parts to make a stand to hold multiple towels. Also, I need to figure out how tie/pin the washcloths down in a way that won't rip and be positioned where a drum/cymbal on a set might be. I'd like to be able to tie towels, most likely washcloths, at each corner and be able to change the amount of tension, too.
Has anyone done something similar to this or know what might be the best materials to create this?
