Anyone have any really good tips about me sound proofing my room? My new Frontman is extremely loud and crunchy, I have fallen in love with it, it is just too damn loud! (well, this is actually a good thine to me) Bur my parents piss and moan about it being to loud if I turn it up to 2! That should give you and idea of how loud it is. I know I need to get carpet in my room, but rugs will probably have to do. What I need to know is specifically how to do this, like how to sound proof the window and door. I live on the second floor, if that is a factor at all.

I can't really help you, but you shouldn't have mentioned that you have a frontman. People don't like those around here.

Should've got an MG, it's overdrive is crushing!

egg cartons work great too
and Im told that 2L pop bottles cut in half work as well, but Ive never tried that

yeah, make sure you have a crapload of money, sound proofing a single prebuilt room well enough for what you want isn't cheap.

if you're on a budget, i heard that egg cartons (the cartons eggs come in) are pretty good for soundproofing. As for the door, maybe a towel or something to block the gap under it? The other route I know of is to get the professional material, but i'm pretty sure that's costly. Hope I helped!

egg cartons are good for acoustic dampening, not so much for sound proofing.

Yeah, well I love it. Most people try to use the Overdrive and it does suck, but they see that and bag on it, jumping on the bandwagon. With pedals, this is an awesome amp.
#12
Well in that case... Is there perhaps a pedal that I can use that will help control my volume better? From 1 to 2 it jumps big time.
#13
you could get a volume pedal, but really it would be cheaper to just use the volume knob on your guitar.

I feel like the dumbest person ever.

All this time I was just messing with the amp volume and not paying attention to my guitar haha. Thank you!

Shit on all over the kitchen sink, floor, and walls. Then they won't care how loud your amp is.

I'm hearing a steady *thump thump* from the people above me and I need some porno grooves to play on my bass to give them some background music. Any ideas?

sarcasm right? RIGHT????

Anyways, messing with the volume on my guitar didn't do much.. Its still loud as hell. My walls are shaking at 2, but I can hardly hear it at 1. If it didn't sound so good I'd take it back.

I have been looking to soundproof my room for awhile, but my parents don't want to spend the money, that and I am leaving for college soon so it doesn't matter

There's actually a whole science to knowing where and how to place soundproofing materials. I just took a test on it, and it sucked. Don't ask me how, go google it.
