How to mute my kit for the appartment? The rubber muters are tooooo heavy and the tom holders can't stand with them on my toms.Please suggest some ways to do it please.I cannot overload the toms with much weight

Fill your drums with cotton or towels?

get some mesh heads, you wont hear anything but it will work.

If you have time, get a bunch of ten inch toms, cut them in half and make your own drums, triggers are cheap and easy to make, but from what you said in your other post you probably dont have that much time, so just get mesh heads for the whole set but i dont know what to do about cymbals, the ony choice for cymbals is the rubber pads.
