Me and some locals started a new garage band and my house is going to be where we practice...this includes the drummer. What's the best way to sound proof a garage to keep the noise to a minimum in the rest of the house??? Any ideas other than put a mattress up against the door to the house would be appreciated lol

Could really use your guys help here.

Thank you!

i would say egg boxes but that only works on treble and even then barely at all. a good thing would be to raise your amps and drums off of the ground so the bass is contained . also make sure to fill any holes in walls and put something around gaps in doors and windows etc.

Egg cartons and blankets. Not the best for soundproofing, but you can find these anywhere.

That's almost exactly what I was going to say...

Oh, you could always just buy the soundproofing stuff if you have enough money.

roll blankets up and put them under the gaps at the door
and stick a blanket in the bass drum,it dulls the sound
well at least thats what theyve done to the drums at my school
and get a tube of polyfilla and put it in the gaps

god you can see ive never done that before.....

Not cheap, but getting that soundproofing foam would be a good idea. Soundproofing should be done well.

The best solution would be to get hold of a load of soundproofing tiles
My band are getting a load of Ebay at roughly £100 ($200) for 80 1'x1' tiles
ohai little sig.

My one mate robbed a load of rubber flooring from a playground and sound proofed his studio with that. Maybe you could buy some of that stuff online...
