Looking to make the decision between tubes or buckets of GG. I could save $$ with the buckets and the dispenser but would like to hear some feedback.

I like the idea that you know exactly how many tubes of GG per drywall sheets. How do you do this with the dispenser? Is it messy? Is there much more waste?

I actually just talked with John H. at the Soundproofing company for a while about this as my room is fairly large.

GG is about the consistency of ketchup and is very easily sucked up into the dispenser with minimum effort.

1 application - 1 tube of GG. So, 2 applications/4x8 sheet.

There is actually very very little waste when done this way. I ended up paying less and getting the equivalent of almost another bucket as extra for all of my other projects.

Cleanup is just like with latex paint - water.

Just remember the GG is very sticky and you need to be extremely neat. Once you start getting a drop here and a drop there, it starts getting ever where. Even the empty tube can start causing a problem iif they are not disposed of quickly.

And getting the stuff on your hands....

Rubbing alcohol (70% Isopropyl) works well when GG is wet. Dried can only be removed with stronger solvents like Acetone
