Hey guys, any suggestions on a good drum rug? The floor rug that i've been using has seen better days.

Get the outdoor carpet with rubber backer Grips good and lasts long. It's like a dense berber. Home Depot by me has Grey and beige. They come 12 feet wide and you pick the length. I got a 12x6 and then asked them to cut it into two 6x6 squares. I got two drum rugs for $27.

cheap and awesome
I totally agree, I bought a 6x8 rug for under $40 and its much better than a $50-60 thin drum rug.

I have a barrier to keep the bass drum from creeping that I put on mine. I simply cut the carpet on one side to leave a "tongue" of the proper length sticking out, cut 2 2'-long pieces of 2x4 lumber and routed out 3 depressions on one side, wrapped the tongue around the 2x4's, used a staple gun to secure the carpet to the wood, tapped some bolt holes in them through the carpet, cut out holes where the depressions are (the depressions keep the bottom flush with the floor) , and bolted the whole thing together to further stabilize it.

id like to see a picture of that, if it wasn't too much trouble

If you have Velcro on your pedal plate which sticks it to your rug and your pedal stays put, and your kick drum is attached to your pedal, you should have NO problem with creeping. At that point you won't need a barrier for the rug.

AMIRIGHT?? :D

I tried it, and it worked, for many years now.

The only trouble I've had with that is the Pedal staying nicely put but the Bass drum coming out of the Pedal vice grip thingy and making it's own way to the front of the stage leaving me and the pedal behind. :? That is of course referring to my old vintage gear with those old school spurs. Anything made made post 1990 with modern spurs should be fine with a velcro-ed down pedal.

Today I went to Lowe's and picked up a 6'*8' Indoor/Outdoor Ribbed Area Rug for less than 20 bucks.

Thank you DML for letting me troll this forum and getting helpful info.

You’ve got the rug for only 20 bucks with a good size of 6 by 8. There are many available rug sizes that you can choose and can be bought in home depots. MDL can definitely help everyone on choosing and buying rugs.
