Been working on a new room to put my gear in as my last one was up to ****.

mucked around round with makin some bass traps and deadening of the room somewhat.

Thought i might chuck up a couple of pics for viewing if anyones interested.

ya cant see the back wall but you get the idea.
got 270 mm dia. cardboard half tube with "soundscreen" rockwool for the back corners as they are quite small corners.
and have thick hesian curtain along the back wall like in the pics.
geez those bass traps make a HUGE difference.
I could never have imagined how much.
So thanks, Massive Master for the tips and ideas.

If anyone can see something more i can do here please feel free.
only just finished, so im sure i will be doing some more in the future.

On the traps - Assuming they're open-backed (if they're not, you might want to consider it) and if you have access to a router, yank away 2/3rds of the sides (leave a structural skeleton) and you'll notice even more effectiveness.

Ha ha, undernieth all the curtains and stuff its a nightmare MackBarrow.

Massive, you proly cant see it, but i have 60mm holesaw holes down the sides of them. Is that what you mean? Like milling out the sides?

i can still hear some sort of resonance, i think, coming from the roof. would sure like to try something up there but dunno if i can or not, being a rental and all.

and yeah MM, the traps are open backed. the stuff just held in by that weed blocker crap.
Man, next time i will be using material. that s*** is a nightmare to use. Never again.
