I'v got a summer house at the end of my garden i use for my drums/guitar and recording. I
currently have NO acoustic treatment... apart from putting an old carpet down! It is very
loud inside the shed, to the point it is getting impossible to play without ear protection
for any length of time. there is no clarity when playing drums, toms seem to ring for
ages, there's a hell of a lot of 'reverb'! Even clapping or clicking sticks causes the
cymbals to ring, and a harsh, high pitched slap-back kind of echo. Outside the
shed/summer house it is still exceedingly loud! I know the problem... well part of it:
there is a 14x8ft paneled glass wall with nothing covering it!
I'v had enough
and have been doing some research, Iv come across the packing blanket method of creating
studio booths. This seems a good idea! It'll cost me getting on for £150 at least to
cover all four walls completely. Still two problems. There will be a foot or two's gap
under the blanket and I'm still concerned that this will only stop the reverb at most, not
quieten the noise level at all??
Please can you suggest how to A: deaden the sound. B) reduce the sound level outside the
Further information that may be usefull: There is a triangular
shaped roof with a hight of approx.8ft-11ft (from ground level) The floor is 14ftx12ft
and the walls themselves are 8ft high. Oh and the glass wall is double glazed.
sorry for the long post, Any Links or buget ideas will be very greatful! P.s I'm not
affraid to build my own bass traps or any other DIY work possible
