Default Re: Newspaper Bass Muffling ??

Before full rubber practice kits became available many players would stuff a kit full of "Rolled Up" newspapers to muffle the sound down. Yes the paper would be in contact with both heads. The end result was usually something that sounded like cardboard boxes, but the neighbours were often much happier.


Cheers John
