See our article… How Much Noise Does a Rock Tumbler Make?
One of the biggest complaints that people have about inexpensive rock tumblers is the amount of noise that they produce.
This video shows that some tumblers make a lot more noise than others.
We compare the Rolling Stones rock tumbler – probably the best selling rock tumbler of all time – with the Thumler’s Tumbler Model MP-1.
See for yourself the noise difference between these tumblers. The two factors that determine the amount of noise are: 1) what the barrels are made from; and, 2) the quality of the motor.
The Rolling Stones tumbler tumbles rocks in a plastic barrel. That produces a lot of noise. The Thumler’s MP-1 Tumbler has a soft rubber barrel which produces a lot less noise. It also has a stronger motor that will make less noise and last a long time.

If noise is a really big concern for you consider the Lortone QT-6 tumbler, in our opinion, one of the quietest rock tumblers that you will find.
Where you run your tumbler is also important. We give a few ideas and suggestions here…
