I teach one day a week at a music store and they just installed the Remo mesh heads and Zildjian Silent cymbals and I can't believe what a difference they make compared to rubber pads. They feel like drums and cymbals, because they ARE drums and cymbals. In an apartment combined with some Auralex Platfoam and plywood for a platform and you might be able to play in an apartment.

How big is the difference with the L80 cymbals? I'm looking at those in combo with silent strokes, so I can practice more. Did you put a non-ported reso on your kick? I had trouble having my kick drum sound like a kick with the silent stroke head, but I was using a ported reso.

Thanks

The store put the heads on, and the BD faces a wall. I have no idea what head is on the front. The cymbals are kind of bright, because they aren't made from the nicer Zildjians. They feel like cymbals, and move like cymbals, so they are 100% better to play than using the stupid rubber pad things on cymbals.
