It all depends on what practice set you are using and what time you're using it at. I personally own 2 practice sets. One Remo
and the other the DW
go kit. The remo
practice pad set is quite loud seeing as it consists of the standard plastic headed pads. The DW
practice kit is a considerable amount quieter though I would not use either if someone is sleeping in the next room. Best bet is to put a set like the DW
one at least a few rooms down from anyone that may be looking for peace and quiet. I don't use the remo
one anymore because of how loud it is.
