It's a stupid commercial from FuckJerry for their idiot tequila
The real MVP for calling out bullshit
Had to scroll way too long to find the sensible comment
Yep. A garbage tequila no one should be drinking
Report for spam.
3 to 7 isn't the worst possible time. 7 to 11 would be torture.
3am through 11pm
Thats when y band used to practice lol
Read this in Liam gallagher’s voice
No this is the worst if you are a night worker such as myself. And btw the drumset is NEXT DOOR? What are your houses built of over there? Papier Mache? Or is it an apartment?
Nah man. I live in an apartment complex and this dude plays the drums but lives in the next building (not connected in anyway, just slightly next to each other) and I can hear it clear as day. Drums are fucking loud
They should have promised him an electric drum set with headphones instead of a regular drum set.
I lived across the street from my old high school for a while. The marching band would practice at 7:00 am every weekday during summer. Sometimes they would march right down the street in front of my house. I worked graveyard shift at the time, so these fuckers were just getting started as I was going to bed.
Love the thoughtfulness, eh?
Could be 3-7am. Those "morning risers"...
It is if you're working from home
A good sound dampening foam in the room should do the trick.
Edit: My intention is for the person with drum set doing something to their practice space to reduce the sound that comes outside to a tolerable level.
But only for higher frequencies, iirc.
No Toms or Kick for you, little fella.
Tyere are foam bass traps that can be purchased online, just gotta look them up.
But that's more appropriate for home cinema or music production. A foot hammering on a kick drum will send waves through the building.
I used to shove pillows in the kick to dampen it lol
That was always my go-to. Worked pretty well and the family complaints were minimal
I’d roll up a sleeping bag
My dad's a drummer and always had a blanket or two in the bass drum when playing his acoustic set at home or practice.
There are pads for the kick drum. I used to use them when living in a townhouse complex. It's not as fun and definitely is a different feel, but it's definitely possible. They make them to cover al the drums as well as pads for cymbals, etc. It will also improve your accuracy when making hits by focusing you to hit the pads directly on cymbals for precision playing. It also gives you the need to work a little harder to get the same bounce effect when hitting a drum head v. these pads, so will improve your control going around the set when you're actually playing them without pads.
Maybe price? Those things can be pretty expensive compared to a cheaper drum set, at least for the better ones with the mesh-style drums (I think they're quieter and a better feel to it than the hard rubber ones).
Rockwool panels are the solution.
I bought 4 squares of foam to put under my set and it really helps dampening a bit through the floor. Then some cardboard egg boxes on the walls and a bit of scrap rugged textiles i got from free to use as drapes falling from the ceiling and i got myself a pretty muted room
Stuff the kick w/ blankets.
All bassy sounds do that, people mostly just have high tolerance for it.
a drummer with a 3.7 GPA ?!?!?!
you wont hear a thing from that kit!
What's the joke? How can you tell if the stage is level? Drool comes out of both sides of the drummer's mouth.
Raised on a stage would help this
Some sort of riser for the drumset, yeah. To keep the bass frequencies from transmitting directly into the flooring.
You need more insulation or "SheetBlok" to cut down the noise to the outside. The foam is more to reduce reverb / reflections in the room itself, but doesn't offer much in the form of reducing noise outside the room.
That's called sound treatment. Soundproofing requires building a new structure.
All foam will do is stop reflections in that room.
*Damping, sound can’t get wet.
Ew I bet it would sound so gross if it could
m o i s t s o u n d
Did you know speaking moistly is illegal in Canada?
you can put a muffle on each head and the cymbals...
Doesnt do anything except make it sound better in the room.
To sound proof a room like that you build a room inside a room. New floor, new ceiling, new walls. You need an air gap filled with sound absorbing material.
You basically need to be in a bubble in that room. It's impressive when done correctly, though. I went to uni at a place that had an entire orchestra hall sealed off. You could barely hear a whisper from the outside.
They make pads that go on top of the heads and cymbals that can greatly dampen the sound while still feeling decent to allow for relatively quiet practicing. Alternatively they should definately have looked into an electronic set. They used to suck but have gotten impressively good and are virtually silent.
Everyone in here is talking about dampeners on the heads or metal and/or electronic kits. Truthfully that will work but both of those are old/dated methods that *kinda* work. They feel wrong to play tho. Honestly get that kid a set of silentstroke heads or mesh drum heads, you can even get silentstroke cymbals that are meant for quiet playing. In the modern era drummers have a few more options to keep the neighbors happy. Personally-I just tell everyone to leave and start smashing…something something forgiveness instead of permission idk
A music room in my school is on the top floor and sometimes you can the banging from the room directly under and around, even with the egg cartons and foams
Green glue. You’re welcome.
i always assumed these are all just fake ads for jaja tequila
Serious question, is that brand pronounced “Ha Ha” or “Ja Ja”?
In spanish we type the onomatopoeia of laughing as "jaja". So it is pronounced "Ha ha" to resemble the sound of laughing
Thank you for the answer!
I mean they have to be I’ve never seen a person buy a bottle of jaja tequila. And I’m an alcoholic
Talk about civility
Props to neighbor for being so respectful!
What would be more respectful would be not getting a drumset in the first place.
Not to the kid.
1 kid vs a dozen neighbors 🤔
It depends on whether the kid wants to play or just make noise. If the latter, then yeah. If the former, you're crushing the kids dreams and depriving them of the ability to make music which is one of the most important things a human can do just for the sake of some quiet which is bad. I would probably ask the kid that anything that can be done on a practice pad is done on a practice pad but outside of that let the kid play.
And the fact the kid got straight As for it tells me its the former.
It was also a deal they made with their kid. You don't really want to back out on a deal, when your kid made such an effort for it.
There are electric drum sets with headphones.
Yep! That’s a great plan as well!
Its not Respectful to the kid
Germans: Dear Neighbors, we inform you that our son is dead
...does that actually happen?
"But the f\*\*\*\*\* pulled it off" - Talk about saying the quiet part out loud, or at least writing it down.
as someone whose older brother got a full kit while we still shared a bedroom…i could have started drinking years sooner than i did….but he’s a professional musician (not just drums, damn prodigy) now so i guess there’s that
That line alone would buy a lot of patience from me.
Also the hact that I'm usually at work between 3-7 so it really wouldn't bother me much.
If it makes you feel better, this is so clearly fake. Lotta people falling for it, though
Please don't use homophobic terms, even if you do censor it with asterisks. The kid's sexuality has no bearing on this issue regardless.
If that is where your thoughts first went to, that's on you. Not on me.
Are you not allowed to say fucker?
It's fucker not faggot my man calm down
F word had NOTHING to do with his sexuality!
Man you might be a complete idiot...
I think the censored word is "fucker"
As we all know, only gay people f***
How is being a f**ker being homophobic though ? His parents using a swear word to describe their child has no basis on the kids sexuality.
he though it was the long form of f*g because he clearly didnt read he letter
Wtf is wrong with saying fucker? If you see something else, that's on you, not OP. Idiot.
It's kinda shitty of you to put your thoughts in other people's mouths. And also, kinda homophobic to always think that way and look for how to instert that word in to every conversation you can. You should consider to take a rest from the internet for a while
its fucker not faggot
>And also, kinda homophobic to always think that way
It's homophobic to think someone else is being homophobic? Is it my fault I've heard that word too much?
[ Removed by Reddit ]
Your very retarded
Yes and also retarded
Talk about saying the quiet part out loud.
What? There was nothing quiet about it. You are stupid publicly and loudly. You're reaching and it's probably miserable to be around you irl
You have no idea what's going on right now.
*say some idiotic shit*
*everyone clowns on you*
*your ego gets hurt and you cant let go*
*get owned again and don't get the jokes*
"You have no idea what's going on right now."
Use more emojis, that may help.
You are a moron, lol.
Edit: or English isn’t your first language. The starred out part was clearly the word fucker
I’m pretty sure he’s saying “fucker” rather than faggot. Like almost 100% sure.
It is also my belief that he’s probably quoting the pictured text OP provided. If my instincts serve me.
The parents even said “that f**ker did it”
The fact that the parent write " as annoyed as you" im desd lmao
This SCREAMS fake boomer meme
It's an ad.
Literally an advertisement
wasn't this an AD for Fjerry sponsored alcohol? So all of this never happened.
electronic drum kit. Problem solved
I hope they work 9-5 in an office with a commute because 4 hours of drums daily is going to quickly turn neighbourly relations sour...
Why post obvious fake crap like this here. Even worse it’s an ad.
Electronic drum kit?
Those are good to some extent, but they don't quite feel the same as real drums. I would recommend electronic and a practice pad for a beginner though. Many people sell their electronic drum kits for under $500 because they just want to get rid of them, but they need a speaker too. Real drum kits are often near $1k for a starter set.
A cheapo real drum kit can be found for about 300 used.
Good ol CB brand is like 600 new, just replace the cymbals.
Most people aren't buying sabians or zildjians for a beginner.
You can use a pair of turtle beach headphones instead
I agree they don't feel the same as regular drums but there's also been times i wanted to record at 3am when I was in high school. The electric set was perfect for that and I loved it
Practice heads will solve 80% of the problem, but the tequila should help handle the rest
Don't some people put acoustic foam in the drums under the heads to muffle it a bit? Had a neighbor who I helped set something like that up for (asked all on his own, *before* pissing everyone off, cool kid) and I thought maybe it was a common thing.
Foam is the more practical solution, but practice heads are literally mesh, and make little sound. I prefer using foam mutes so you can still hear what drum you’re hitting, but in terms of sound deadening, perforated heads are more effective
Makes sense. I don't know much about it, just that when a kid asks me to help build him something to avoid pissing off the neighborhood I'll get behind the project. :)
Yeah good luck with that!
Lol! The fact that they tried to pass off giving you cheap ass The Chainsmokers Tequila as a favor is an even bigger insult…
This is how you neighbor.
“Are you fucking kidding me”
- my wife after reading this note
They make silent drumsets where they wear headphones.
Should have signed with "Kindest regrets"
Electric drum set w/ headphones?
lame. If noise is an issue, the parents should get him an electric kit. SMH
Jokes on them I’m a raging alcoholic next thing you know I’m banging on their wall from 7am to 3pm
They have practice pads for this reason.
Hopefully OP doesn't WFH and need to zoom between those hours 😐
Lol no. Electric kits exist for these types of situations.
I love how it starts formal and then "the fucker pulled it off lol"
Funny story but probably not real 🙃. This is the tequila brand of the FuckJerry media goobers (of Fyre Fest fame), and they have already posted a dozen other ads disguised as memes.
It must be really really bad lol.
Lol a bottle of wine isn’t gonna soothe what coming
As a drummer , this in unacceptable and rude. Drums are over 100db . I’d raise hell and tell them to get a electronic kit
At the point that you're spending $600 for an acoustic drumset though, why not spend the extra $100 and get an electric one which not only has different noises you can do but, paired with headphones, makes a lot less noise?
Best neighbours ever.
The secret for this is an electronic drum kit with a headphone jack.
That worked for me with my youngest. He practiced for three years to be good enough to play drums for a very bad band.
The discovery that drummers rarely have groupies brought peace to my house.
I think I'd spontaneous kill myself 🤣😂
Love this. It takes a village, and apparently, some tequila.
An electronic drum set would have been better than an actual one. Then he could pull in headphones and drum away, plus (since they’re expensive) you can buy piece by piece. Keep the kid motivated.
I'm an alcoholic
Awe. You poor bastards.
Stop sharing this fucking ad, no one with a brain is buying this “meme” jaja keeps trying to push on people.
3.7 GPA and practicing from 3 to 7? At least it wasn’t a 3.9… those two hours saved are a blessing.
Thats good tequila too.
i bet the tequila wont last a week
There are pads to put over the drums to suppress noise as well as drumpad kits that he can hook up to / customize and have it all go to headphones. Then, when at school, he can rock out to his heart's content.
But good on them for following through and offering everyone within earshot some relief.
They should get an electric drum kit
They could buy him electric drums, so he could use headphones.
Very thoughtful neighbor 👍
Guys, stop upvoting an ADVERTISEMENT
What's a gpa?
Def a JAJA ad
Fuk your dumb kid and his drums
Lol, the fucker pulled it off
You live next door to a future rock star. Drink up! Buy stock in the kids career. If he’s really playing for four hours a day lol.
Boi if you don't slam a tequila shot everytime he starts practicing, are you even a human
Bruh why didn't his neighbour just call or meet. Who writes a letter lol.
This is pretty sweet, tbh. Great parents for letting their son pursue a passion after hard work and great neighbors for giving a heads up.
Also free booze.
I can only imagine what my poor neighbors went through. No heads up. Just one day they see some kid somehow unloading a 6x12 cab out of their backseat of their 88 Ford Taurus and a Hughes & Kettner Warp 7.
Another day they see me unloading a 5 piece Tama drumkit from the same car and tons of hardware.
My part-time jobs went to three places. Cigarettes, entertainment, and Instruments.
Each time the noise of my practicing just flowed down the streets.
I had a great family that really helped indulge my passion for music. I'm lucky. They would chip in small amounts when they could. We didn't have much. I had a basement and things I wanted to write.
Props to the parents for contacting the neighbors,and being understanding about it
Two words- electric drumkit.
Source: drummer for 20 years. Not silent, but anything is quiet compared to an acoustic.
It's really funny the parent called their son "fxxxer" even in this letter.
Not only is this fake but it's also a shitty ad for fuckjerrys shitty tequila. Fuck you OP.
Another fake JaJa post for views.
As long as he's got good taste I wouldn't care
Advert or not this is funny
All games and fun until he finds out about metalcore and double bass drum
Fuck yeah, Chris.
There's electric drum kits with headphones...
They need to make an effort to soundproof the room the drums are in
They do make electric kits that are just fine for learning to play.
I’d show up to show him some kit maneuvers…
I would share it, and listen.
You only get one of these in a lifetime, cherish it, get drunk and grope each other.
Get drunk each time he bangs, or vice versa.
