I've used something called video cymbals before, which are two cymbals glued together. And linoleum (The stuff on your kitchen floor in 1985) on tops of my drums...

When I shot our video, I air drummed behind my kit and put duct tape on the bottoms of my cymbals.

In the last one I did, I used a Sound Off pad on the snare and didn't attach the BD pedal to the hoop of the drum. I remember turning the snare strainer off and just playing the cymbals like normal.

I put duct tape under my cymbals and hit the rims of my drums.

stacked cymbals, with smaller ones out of sight, and mesh drum heads.

I just played along to my click track with my in-ears, you couldn't even tell I was wearing them. We played live, amps on the whole nine, it made syncing things up a lot easier to say the least.

I did all of that muffling stuff too but also used hot rods wrapped in white gaff tape
