Whenever we practice, I can barely hear myself or the guitar players. It's important to note that we're all in high school, and have small amps, so we can only turn up so loud. Also we practice in a 15x20 room in my house, so we're kinda right next to the drum set. I've approached him and told him he should use hot rods, but he says that "hot rods are meant for hip hop and he won't play rock and metal with them. I'll just play quieter." Then he proceeds to play just as loud as he did before. The guitarists and I aren't going to be able to work on the details and small nuances in the songs if we can't even hear ourselves. Anyways, have you guys ever experienced this where all you hear is drums when you practice? If so, any suggestions? Thanks!
