DIY #1 Bass Trap

Aktualisiert: 13. März 2020

During the last week I thought about how to optimise the sound in my recording room (would't call it a studio ;-)

The room is rather small and until now I did not add anything for better acoustics.

When I got my new desk-chair today, it was packed in a nice, sturdy box of 0.7x0.6 cm with a height of 10cm which seemed suitable to try making a bass trap. I'm allergic to Rockwool so that was no option. I decided to use wool of my sheep. They are only 3 but they produce a proper amount of wool every year and I haven't got enough time to spin or felt it all. I'm not sure if wool is as good as Rockwool but it's natural, non-itchy (except if you are allergic to Lanolin, then better stay away from it).

So here we go:

First I removed the lid of the box and added some small "bridges" for the second floor to rest on because I wanted the bass trap to have an empty space on the back side.The two parts of the lid will now make the second floor.

I applied several layers of sheep wool, first layer horizontally, next one vertically and so on until it had approximately the height/density of Rockwool.

It will settle down in its new home ;-) over night and I hope I can make the fabric cover tomorrow!

To be continued :-)

Happy New Year ?!

First I must apologise for being absent for a long time. Had to do some work around the house, building and repairing stables and other stuff that is due in summer. But since the weather turned as wet

New Song!
