We finally got to see the neighbor's drum kit. It's an electronic drum kit, for whatever that's worth. (I'd guess about $800.)

Apparently the Sea Hag is unaware we can hear it being used and only noticed the "sudden thumping noise" that was me throwing a volleyball at our ceiling as hard as I could, which was odd because her pwecious son "only dropped a drum tool" (after six throws on my end). She thought the thumping was someone running in the breezeway.

...

In other news, our end of the building was leafletted with double-sided sheets reminding us of curbside trash pickup times and that dog owners are expected to pick up their dog poo outside. Funny, we only got semi-regular leaflets about dog poo before they moved in. *cough*

I'm not really a fan of thumping on the walls/ceiling myself. While it means leaving the privacy of your place, they may get the picture better if you knock on the door when they're obnoxious. That, and if you have to call the police over a disturbance, the police smile on the knocking better than the thumping. My two cents worth. Sounds like they're being unattentive, and that a face showing up from time to time would be a good reminder.


Good luck with them.

I'm not a fan of thumping, but it's worked with them.

These neighbors already have a history of noise complaints with both the apartment office and the police, so I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop.

It just stinks that of the 20 other units in our building, it's the one right above us that's got the noisy people.

I do agree with redqueenofevil that the thumping (we did it to the wall for the next door people) can be used against you, but at the same time it's SO annoying to put on decent clothes and shoes just to go knock on their door.

Is there any way to get the landlord/rental office or whatever invovled in this? No one should have a home drum kit unless they live in their own, detached home, and have a soundproof room for it. That's just WRONG.

I've never gotten an answer when I go up and knock myself, so I take Vogon with me when I'm going nuts from the noise.

They have /three/ drum kits (two regular, one electronic) and there's a music school with rehearsal space under a half mile away, so I'm not sure why they feel the need to rehearse in their apartment aside from saving the cost of renting rehearsal space.

Isn't there anything the owners can do about it? It just sounds awful and must be against some rules somewhere.
