Vocal room questions

hey everyone, i'm trying to put together a vocal room or probably more like a closet (very small) I was wonder what kind of absorbers people like to use. ive heard really good things about Auralex but theyre so damn expensive. Does anyone know of any other good foams that work well but are somewhat cheap? also, how much better is foam than say a heavy blanket on the walls? and if i were to use foam should i cover all the walls with it? certain spots? what do you suggest? lastly, i was thinking i could use this room for guitar cabs when i mic them, are "dead rooms" good for a nice thick guitar sound too? thanks alot.

my friend found some foam on ebay for a pretty decent price. Maybe check there. I recorded vocals at his house, in his closet where he had put the foam and it really makes a difference. Much better than blankets and such.

As for Auralex being expensive. Quality doesnt come cheap. They make probably the best acoustic foam out there. I have tried some of the other cheaper brand's over the years. If you dont mind them rotting away in a year or two then thats the route to go. Otherwise, sometimes it's you get what you pay for.

But in a small room, it probably wont matter.

Googled ya up a ton of sites, have a look aroudnsome of them. www.google.com/search?q=A...:en-US:official

Believe it or not a walk in closet full of, you guessed it, clothes works pretty well too.
