Still in the infant stages of planning on a drum practice space. Once I get some numbers together I'll start a thread but was wondering about this product whether it is any better than standard sheathing:

I did a search here and didn't find anything on it which leads me to believe that if no one here has used it then I probably already have my answer :)

Thanks

It seems to be nothing but some type of particle board with a higher density coating. It also is lightweight, and even advertised as such, so no, it would not be much use for isolation or your room. Blocking serious sounds (such as drums) needs serious mass. The entire sheet of that stuff only weighs 24 pounds, so it doesn't have a lot of mass.

Don't waste your money! There's no such things as magical products that bypass the laws of physics... :)
