I am a professional drummer, but also a full-time college student. By the time I get home from campus, it's late.

I needed to be able to practice beyond the noise curfew.

THESE WORK SOOOO WELL!!! I can play at full volume and my kit not be heard very well by my family.

BUY THESE! Make sure you make the proper selection (standard sizes, fusion sizes). Also, it is possible to order individual drum and cymbal mutes.

Bought these when I was living in an apartment, just to learn sets. I was always wearing headphones, so the sound wasn't important. If that's important, I wouldn't recommend, but the whole idea is to mute. They were good for the price. The downs: if you play them a lot, the material wears down pretty quickly, and the first issue I had was with them sliding off the drum, which I corrected with velcro. I owned the Pearls before handing them down to my son, and they were definitely better, but way more expensive. But for the money these are fine.

Excellent product, but leaves residue on cymbals..

By lrll55

from Phillipsburg, NJ

Comments about Vic Firth Drum Set Mute Prepack:

Caution: the mutes will stick to your cymbals and leave a black residue if you leave them on in a hot room. Be kind to your cymbals and remove the mutes after each use. =)

Great Set of Mutes

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Vic Firth Drum Set Mute Prepack:

These mutes do what they are supposed to do; give the maximum amount of drumhead feel while canceling out as much sound as possible. They are all easy to set-up and they allow me to practice late in the night. The toms are almost completely muted out but the bass drum and the snare have a nice sound to them, only softer.

These Mutes Work as Advertised

By Pythor Sehn

from Apache Junction, Arizona

Comments about Vic Firth Drum Set Mute Prepack:

The sound damping on all the drums was good, and the cymbal sounds were muted adequately. I would prefer them to be a little stiffer or give just a little more rebound. As it is, they're somewhat soft so you get a workout while you play with them. Nevertheless, they do what I need them to do. As for the other review about making the drums sound bad, that's ridiculous. Don't pay attention to him. Somebody's confused about what a drum mute is supposed to do. They're just supposed to squash the noise, that's it. They're not a magical volume knob you put in your acoustic set.

    Nice Product Like Most VF Stuff

    By Markdrumz

    from Tryon, NC

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Vic Firth Drum Set Mute Prepack:

    I am happy with these. They muffle appropriately, and if your drums are tuned well they will sound good using these mutes as well A few comments on other reviews. You can lay the hi-hat mute over the top of the clutch--you don't have to uncrew the clutch to place the mute right over the bell on your top hat. I have found that the cymbal mutes are effective even when a use sitcks on the cumbal itself. The lack of bounce is not excessive--for those of you who are looking to improve your chops a bit of rebound dampening is a good thing. For anyone who is concerned about keeping the volume down your can also supplement these pads by not bashing your drums--that helps too! My bass drum (Sonor S-Classix 22X18) tends to be a bit boomy even with the mute on--I play with an unvented front head. I'm not too concerned as it's not that loud, but if you play a bass with that same head arrangement and want to get as quiet as possible you might want to lay something like a pillow in front of the resonant head to muffle it.

    Drum Set Mute Review

    from Fort Knox, KY

    Comments about Vic Firth Drum Set Mute Prepack:

    This is def worth your money. I am finally able to play my drums in my duplex without irritating my neighbor (Who is also my landlord) The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is because it takes away alot of the tone from the cymbals.

    Drum Set Mute Prepack

    By robert zak

    from san diego metal

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Vic Firth Drum Set Mute Prepack:

    overall like one of the other reviews said "not a magical volume knob"
    but i think its the closest you can get
    needed somthing to quite down my drums so i can play them after work without destroying my neighbors....and these are pretty great at doing just that. However if you beat your drums like they owe you money, then they can still get a little loud (not at all comparable to the db level without though)
    rubber seems pretty sturdy

    Looking to kill crashes? No sir.

    from Fayetteville, NC

    Comments about Vic Firth Drum Set Mute Prepack:

    I am a heavy rock player. When I play, I hit hard, and I side stick everything but my ride. You can't side stick a crash with these, it still makes enough noise that your parents will be annoyed by it.Other than that, everything else it mutes fine..just make sure you turn off your snare catch.If these worked well to deaden the crashes, I would absolutely love them, but crashes are the most important cymbal in the music I play.

      Comments about Vic Firth Drum Set Mute Prepack:

      This product will allow my middle schooler to practice without his siblings losing it. Worth the money if it allows him to not waste my money on lessons by not practicing (and saves my sanity as well). These are good for our use, which is a middle schooler on a starter set. I know there are nicer ones out there, but knowing we will change drum sets in the next year or two, this allows for what we need. The sizes are a bit smaller than what we needed, but it works well enough. The price was right.

        Comments about Vic Firth Drum Set Mute Prepack:

        We live in a town house where we have neighbors on both sides of our home which makes it difficult to practice more than 20 minutes without the neighbors getting mad. I got these as a gift and they've worked wonders. Definitely mutes the sound by a lot to the point that you can practice when everyone is sleeping and not wake them up. Of course the pads don't give you the same rebound but I believe it makes for better practice anyway. For the cymbal pads to work, you have to hit them straight on (no side hits or any showmanship) because it only covers a partial part of the cymbal. I still don't know about the quality because its only been about 2 weeks but they've looked great so far and haven't worn down.

            These pads work well to suppress the sound. The stick response isn't the best but it is better than nothing. I think a harder rubber pad would work better than this soft material. These pads probably will not last too long but you can use these as stencils to trace out on another harder rubber when they wear out.

                Comments about Vic Firth Drum Set Mute Prepack:

                I keep my drum set in an upstairs bedroom and the Mrs. says that she barely notices when I am playing with these. She's even able to fall asleep downstairs as I am playing! It significantly muffles the set but my toms, bass drum, and snare still sound pretty good. Cymbals are another story; these completely kill my crash cymbal (all I get is a *plink* when I hit it). The ride is a little better - you can hear differences when hitting the bell, bow, or edge (but it still doesn?t sound quite right). Closed hi-hat sounds almost the same as not having the drum mute on but open hi-hat is similar to the *plink* of the crash. It?s weird but tolerable for practicing. My only real complaint though is when putting the cymbal mutes on and taking them off. You have to unscrew the top of your stands each time because the mute has to sit on the screw. Even so, the only truly annoying one to do is the hi-hat since you have to remove the entire top cymbal to mount/remove the mute.
