I bought these Meinl PM1BK Studio Maracas. They are way too loud for me. Just way too loud. I kinda need to wear ear protection to use them.
Now… is there a way to easily dampen the sound of the maracas? I don't mind if they look ugly afterwards; they are just unusable for me currently.
Could I tape something to them? Or drill a hole and put some liquid in them, maybe? I couldn't find anything on the internet.
