Soundproofing a Drum Room

Filed under: Budget Soundproofing — Tags: , — admin @ 8:40 am

The other day we read a post on Home & Garden asking about how to soundproof a drum room. This particular individual has a drum room in his converted garage, which just so happens to be beneath the living room. He needs to soundproof the roof.

Do you have a similar situation?

Here’s the deal. Egg crates are not good soundproofing solutions. They aren’t effective because they are porous, allowing sound to pass through. Even those on a budget should consider soundproofing with a simple combination of Green Glue and drywall.

Soundproofing the roof of the garage he’s using as a drum room should be relatively easy. All he has to do is apply the Green Glue to the roof, screw on the new layer of drywall right over top of the old, finish the seams with acoustical caulk, and refinish the ceiling. His parents will never hear him practice again.
