Was my husband's behaviour out of order (bad neighbours - please read)? I am feeling anxious.

Could you elaborate on what you had to put up with and what was the outcome? Thanks.
Mouse that would take all day literally. But allow me to give you the benefit of my experience.

The first thing I would do is be nice and introduce yourselves.

I know that is going to be extremely hard because you are both so angry

Be nice and genuinely take an interest just as you would with anyone else.

You could give a small housewarming gift like a plant or something.

Slowly but deliberately and calmly explain to them about everything . You mustn't get angry. But don't hold back tears.

When they cause he'll at night pop round when they are asleep and Nick the door so they have to get up and talk to you.

Maybe put a polite note through their door asking them to keep the noise down and explain that your husband works and so needs his sleep?

You are to be extremely nice. Nicely tell them of the situation again. Then keep them talking at the door about anything. The weather or anything. Be nice.

This should work for most people who for whatever reason behave the way your new neighbours do.

Plan b is a last resort and can turn really ugly if it goes wrong.

I disagree about not indulging in stereo wars as a last resort. It does work to quieter things down for a bit. For some situations you have to fight fire with fire.

I'm a musician. I'm also a considerate neighbour. I play electric guitar.

This is the sort of firepower you'll need to finally get your message across. It will work. But they might retaliate in some other way like vandalism etc.

But you want a bass guitar bass amp and speaker cabinet. That way you will stop them from sleeping all day because bass noise will go straight through their wall insulated or not.

You can pick up a used equipment really cheap because guess what people bass players can't use them at home because they are too noisy!
