Where can I play drums in Brooklyn, near or accessible from Park Slope?

After 6 years, I'd like to get back into playing drums. I don't currently have a kit and I live in a small walk-up in South Park Slope. Is there anywhere nearby or accessible that I can go to a few times a week to play? Monthly fee would be ideal, but I'd be fine with paying a reasonable hourly rate.

Park Slope, Sunset Park, Prospect Heights, Downtown would all work, as well as anything off the F, G, or R trains. I found some places in Williamsburg that are not very convenient, and a trek longer than 30 minutes will probably keep me from practicing.

I'm not looking for drum circles or people to jam with, and I don't want an electronic kit. Just a place where I can go and play on a kit for an hour.

I've used the "Standard Rehearsal Rooms" Complete Studios a handful of times, and it's been pretty good. They have kits set up (though I'm a keyboardist, so I can't speak to their quality). The rooms are a little boomy (not great for bass), but the rates are reasonable, and it's pretty close to you.

Yup, find a proper rehearsal studio in your neighborhood. The place I go to in Manhattan (Rivington Music) has smaller rooms, perfect for just drumming, for reasonable rates, even better rates during daytime and weekends. Pretty sure you could Yelp something similar in Brooklyn.
