4.0 out of 5 stars Quieter, not silent, 2 Jan 2009
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This product certainly does reduce the sound of hitting the drum pads in Rock Band. It'd be wrong to say they silence it - no way could you hit something reasonably hard without making a noise - but they removing the annoying 'click' sound that you get with the regular drum pads. This means it's easier to hear the drum noise from the game and the sound of you hitting the pads is less intrusive.

Attaching the drum pads was easy and they look pretty good (better than the original gray plastic) although the lettering does wear after a few days of hitting them with sticks. This is a solid, not cheap, product - if you want the pad noise reduced they are worth the money, but don't expect the miracle of silent play... other players will still be aware of the sound of you thwacking along.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good info, but very, very short, 6 Jun 2008
Bear in mind that, although cheap, this is a booklet - it's 18 pages in all, and which makes it very tiny. Although some of the tips are clever and insightful, it's still a high price for the amount of content. Some of the tips are brief summaries of fairly complex techniques, and don't really give you enough to implement them. It appears to mostly be an advert for the authors training - if you know little about this topic already, this book won't help. It is a potentially useful summary of some basic ideas, however.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable, inspirational and thought provoking, 21 May 2002
In a way it's frustrating that when you get 'occult' attached to the description of your book you've removed 99.9% of your potential audience - frustrating because this book is *so* impressive it deserves to be extremely widely read. Ramsey Dukes has a clarity, and creativity, of thought that means each of the many and varied chapters of this book leaves you with something to think about long after you've finished reading. The world needs more original thought, and more people prepared to consider ideas too unusual for most people to work with. Read this book, whatever your current beliefs, it'll do you good.
