Gearing up

This is where you can show off your home studio. This is also where you can ask questions or give advice concerning room treatments.

I do believe we are. Just take any dimension you want and follow my diagram above and let me know how it works out. Also if you could, do a 10 to 15 sec recording of room tone when you get the time and send it to me. Just set everything up like you were going to record, except, be as silent as you can.

OK, will do.
Is this the correct grocery list to take the store? (I don't want to look like an idiot when I get there. face_palm ):

2- 48" PVC
16- 24" PVC
6- 2" large electrical zip ties
6- 2" 90 degree elbows

Hi, Today was hardware store day. I think I got it all, but was just checking-- Helpful Hardware Guy and I wondered if there were supposed to be four 48" PVC pipes, not two?

As long as you followed my diagram, 2 should do it. I guess we will find out as you put it together.

Hey there, I wanted to give you an update:
I have part of the booth set up, but it is not working out and part of that is my fault. I never was good at math, so I should have just stayed with the diagram numbers you gave me to begin with!! The 24" are too short and I should have asked for 36" after all. One reason I went with 24" is because I did not understand the diagram to begin with. :oops: I'm beginning to understand now that I'm putting it together! I guess I'm a hands on learner... :roll:
So, I have decided it is not that important for me to stand in it after all.
And anyway, Helpful Hardware Guy cut all the 24" PVC pieces uneven on top of everything. So I am going to go back to ask if they would make it right, and ask for 36" instead so that the booth will be at least deep enough. That should fix the problem, I think.
Ta-ta!

It's OK, I wish I would have pressed the point of making sure the pieces were cut to the exact length. You know that if you have the back panel cut to the correct width, the 24 inch side panels will probably work just fine. Remember, we just want to absorb the sound at the first reflection point, from getting back into the mic. If you mic will be inside the 24 inches, it may just do what we want it to. My desk top version is just 18 inches wide and it works fine. ;)

OK, Yes, it would probably be doable if my table wasn't as big. I just don't think I have one that's smaller. I do a lot of thrifting, so maybe I will come across one shortly. It has to be comfortable to sit at and not too low. If not, I'll ask for the 36", depth-wise.
