I'm about to start a band in my basement.
however, my mother doesn't want it to be too loud.
being the teenager i am, that won't happen.
and i've been researching for days on soundproofing.
I need a really cheap soundproofing solution, otherwise, Mommy dearest will kick us out. and we'll be forced to the streets to play music like hobos for money at the local food lion.

...thanks ahaha.

carpet/egg cartons wont sound proof anything you twat... that will kill and reverb the room has, it wont do **** to keep the sound from getting out..

There is no cheap way to truly sound proof a room, to give you an idea... some people line the walls with lead. that tends to work pretty well.

Well as long as your mother stays in the kitchen, she shouldn't hear a thing. Oh and have her make you and your band some sandwiches while she's in there.

SOUND PROOF =/= SOUND TREATED


you are all recommending how to sound treat the room, so its like a studio and is dead.

meaning, sound will not bounce off the walls back at your ears, making practice better sounding. But it wont do anything to keep the sound waves from traveling past the wall to your mother.

Wait until your parents leave. If that doesn't happen, tell your mom to get a life.

Does anyone else in your band have a better, or at least just as good space with a more easy going family? In my experience this sort of thing never works out well. Your family will continue complaining and interrupting practice until nobody feels like jamming anymore.
