I’ve neglected updating my blog AND getting IHR 101 out.
Life has taken over my … well, life lately and between dealing with work, family and building out the Incubator, I haven’t had much time to pay attention to tossing up a post.
Needless to say, I’ve got a lot of fodder to throw your way and here’s the first picture blog of building sound treatment panels (some call them traps) for my studio.
I got inspired to design my own based upon one simple principle: to maximize the exposed area of insulation batts. With this in mind, and considering that, at maximum, two batts are relatively light-weight, I opted to construct a relatively thin frame to which the batts would be attached with fabric.
I chose to construct the rectangular frame out of 1×2’s and use burlap to wrap the whole thing up.
All-in-all, the material for the 8 panels I built cost well under $200.
I’ve JUST gotten the opportunity to test out the room with the panels, corner bass-traps and cloud (more on those in a later post) in place and … I am freakin’ impressed.
Here are the pics:
