I have a fairly small sized basement and we practice down there but the sound rings through the house. Whats a cheap way to soundproof? I dont need complete silence but enough so the whole house isnt shaking

Thanks

cover the walls in egg cartons then hang strips of old carpet from the cieling about an inch infront, should do the trick.

where do you put the egg cartons? on the doors edges or something


No, everywhere. Staple them to the wall.

Tape them to youre body too, that way it'll be real quiet, and if youre mum comes in yelling to turn it down, you just shimmy up against the wall and you'll instantly camoflauge in with it, that way the drummer will get the blame.

You don't actually use egg cartons. You use foam that looks like a big sheet of egg cartons, called an "egg crate." You can use mattress pads and the like, as well.

Christ, thats expenisve. Looks like standard roof lining to me .

If you go to an industrial upolstry place, and wave a couple of tennors infront of someones nose, theyll go round the back and drag 3 tonnes of offcutts out of the skip for you. Thats the way to do it.
