I've spent the last year trying everything I can to quiet the drums in my basement studio. Sound treatment, Switching to In-Ears, telling him it's too loud. I've played with several other drummers at my place. It's loud, but not ears ringing all night loud. The dude plays with tree trunks, and breaks sticks regularly. We've mentioned lighter sticks... and he thinks they will break too often (insert me raging about just playing softer). I don't know what else to do, I thought that our whole band on In-Ears was the solution, nope they bleed from 3-4 mics we have in the room. I'm trying to hear my voice over the drums, but when I turn up the drums just follow. I need help!
