Ok, I know I'm a noob and I know my playing isnt the best, but here is my video of all 4 types of MO, Hardwood, Warmstone, and Polycarb.

As I commented on YT, I can't hear a difference in tone on your video.  I'm not sure but I think it may be because you're playing fairly gently.  The difference between the materials is most audible to me when playing strongly, notes above G.

Ah, I'll have to give it a go! Just to see how it works hehe. I am very self conscious of my neighbors being right through the wall when I make my recordings. <GRIN>

I have the same problem--not to mention famiily members, who quickly get tired of it.  The truth is, I don't get to play as much in this cold weather when I'm housebound a lot of the time.  I do use the 2-minute method when in the car, but opportunities for more extended practice are rare.  But I learned that inhibited playing isn't a good thing.  The silencer is good for practicing fingering, but not for tone control.

Recording is a special problem, because if I'm at home I almost never have an opportunity for more than one or two takes before people get fed up.  So if there are mistakes, they stay in.

When the weather is even a little milder, I don't mind practicing outdoors, and even recording outdoors.  But it has to be warm enough so that my fingers can move easily.

Well, I don't want to hijack the thread, but I do know what you're up against, and the MO is meant to be played with gusto.  When you do, the sound difference in the different materials comes across a bit better.

Thank you so much for that, it gives me a good perspective to work from!!! If I get time at work I go to a noisy rack room full of computers and play there loudly but only on a night shift, its quite nice.

Anyway, I hope sales are going well for MO and that they continue to grow!!!
