A drum riser will do nothing useful for isolation, and make the sound of the drums worse unless it is filled with sand. You don't want the riser resonating like a huge drum head.

If isolation is a concern, ie blocking sound from people hearing it, then you need structural modifications and/or construction. You would sure up the existing structure by sealing the doors, and electrical outlets, and "plugging" the windows. If that is not enough, then you need to construct a set of isolation walls and ceiling, rated for the amount of isolation you require.


Bass traps, wall panels, etc, don't help isolation, they are used to "tune" the room, to improve the subjective sound quality within the room.
