Hey UG, I was just wondering how late you can stay up till playing your drum kit. I live in Australia so I dont know if it's different in different contries and Id like to know what it is. Thanks in advance

My friend used to live in council flats, and use to play his drums as loud as he could at near enough midnight. Yet I live in a friendlier neighbourhood and I stop playing about 8. Small children across the road live in my road.
I guess use your common sense.

Yeah as everyone said it's not a specific law, just use common sense and have respect.

If you like your neighbours I'd stop by 10 at the latest - otherwise play away until the police turn up.

actually birdy, there is a law in australia, (im a fellow aussie btw). the law is that u cannot play amplified instruments (including drums) after 11pm or before 7am. but like other have said, if you know when ure neighbours go to bed approx., or if they have kids, respect em

The drummer in my band can play 'til ten, but it really depends on your area.

My friend lives in a huge detached house that's really quite far away from another house so he can play whenever he wants.

My mate and drummer in my band normally gets told to get off the drums at 9 or 10, he's not even allowed on them on sundays

I stop playing my guitar at around 7/8ish, for respect for neighbours etc. But I'm sure if I were to play drums I'd stop before that.

I disagree, I use these:

They're very good at silencing the drums. Even when you're sitting at the kit you can barely hear them, even the cymbals are muted well. They aren't great for band practice or something, because they're quite diffucult for others to hear. They're great for personal practice, though.
