How did you stuff the rockwool inside that shiny white bass trap?

Technically, it's a shiny white double bass trap. :D

Just caught up with this - really nice work Drew, looks like a lovely space and you're no muppet that's for sure :clap:

Looking great! I’m about final result rather than fine aesthetics so I know about the muppet construction look.
Btw - is that the 3/4s bass? It looks huge in there.

I think there's a bit of a lens distortion effect there, it's a normal 3/4 size.
Made the other two frames today but no more photos as they'd basically look the same.
Should be getting rid of the desk tomorrow though, which will give me enough space to work inside on the next stages so I'll be less weather-dependent.

Progress during the week was kyboshed by that little thing that we refer to as work. Well, those of us who haven't retired yet...
But this weekend was a bit more productive.
Cut and PVA-ing rockwool for a couple of corners:

One corner frame with rockwool stuffed:

And one finished frame:

Not fully installed yet but you get the idea.
2 corners done, 2 just need stuffing and cara-ing.

And then that's the easy bit done...

It's basically just shelf space as there won't be much elsewhere. It's a compromise (another) between getting the bass trapping in the corners but still leaving me a functional space.
So that back corner, for example, may just have a lamp in it or a box of bits or a grotbox etc. etc.

I didn't think of that, my corner bass traps are floor to ceiling (I didn't have power sockets in there though). Which begs the question, what determines the efficacy of a corner trap, the frontal area, the volume or the total 'open surface'?

Looking very nice Drew, kinda envious (though I do still like my room). Perhaps we should all arrange reciprocal studio visits (visitors to supply the tea and hobnobs)?

All three, plus the depth obviously.

Sounds like a plan, you may have to wait a while though!

That’s called the defraction area :think: You’ve invented the combo absorption/refraction trap. You’ll make a million marketing those! :headbang:

I did think about saying that it's for additional wedges to be added to tune the room, but actually i just need somewhere to put stuff. :)

Well progress this weekend has been handicapped by a cracked rib and a hangover but, after a bit of a setback this morning, I am declaring the bass traps finished and installed.
Couple of final bits of touching up when the rest is done but otherwise we're good.
Next weekend we get into the more serious joinery to mount the absorber panels.
