Did some upgrading to the music studio over the weekend. I've been looking to add some acoustic treatments to the walls and ceilings. A few months back, I was going to make my own using fabric, rock wool, and some wood frames....but I decided to hold off on that and look for some acoustical foam. Last week I found a kid out of Toronto who was selling 2' x 4' acoustic foam panels cheap. He drove down from Toronto last Saturday and I hooked up with him and bought 10 panels. He had about 40 panels in his SUV, so he'd obviously lined up a few buyers here in town.

I glued them to 2' x 4' thin wood panels, and let them cure overnight. Today I hung all 10 panels in the studio. 8 on the walls, and two on the ceilings over my main console area. The look of all the foam rattled me a bit at first, but I'm used to it now. I have to say, the room sounds a shit-load better now.....when playing back my monitors. There's far less echo and reflection now in the room, but it doesn't sound too dead. So, I'm pretty happy.

Total cost was: 10 x $20 for the 2' x 4' acoustic foam panels. 3 x $6 for adhesive. 10 x $2 for the 2' x 4' thin wood panels that I glued the foam to, before mounting them on the walls on ceiling. So, $238 in total.

Here's a few pictures.

Looks great David. I could easily feel at home in a space like that.

Acoustically, it's amazing what a few panels can do.

Thank you for the compliments, guys.

Andreas, you're right. It's a Peavey Classic 30 Delta Blues, that I bought about 12 years ago.

That's an amazing studio set up. I'm beginning to feel an itch to start changing some things here....
