Green glue value for "room in a room"

I've had several knowledgeable people tell me to skip the green glue for what I'm doing, and wanted more opinions. I'm building a room within a room, two leaf with two layers of drywall outside and two inside with air gap and fully separated walls. I was planning on using green glue between the drywall layers on the inside leaf. The goal is to keep drum noise from escaping the room. Will green glue make a noticeable difference?

Yes green glue will help, don’t skimp on this and don’t forget to use the acoustical caulk on all the cracks think of it like trying to seal a fish tank.

Also if you have to do the plugs recessed... they make sound putty sheets to cover the rough in boxes.

Good luck

All other things being equal, probably not a huge difference in your case. From what i've read GG isnt very effective below ~80hz. You would most likely benefit more from adding 2 more layers of drywall vs adding GG.

The MAM remains similar unfortunately.
