soundproofing a room for violin practice
« on: February 13, 2008, 12:35:22 PM »
Hello everyone,

I need to practice my violin regularly.

My room is air conditioned. The walls and windows seem good enough to contain the violin sound but not the door.

Can someone tell me what can I do to my door such that it would allow only minimal sound from passing through it?

I have been to Yamaha music school and I realise they have very thick doors for their classrooms. Where can I get that kind of doors?

All help is appreciated.

hi i play violin as well, what you want is a solid core door. most passage way doors are basically card board, i know i am a builder. a door must be fitted, but a solid door should take no more than an hour to fit if that helps your quote. i am in australia so i prob cant help you
alsio sound gets out of cracks really well a bit llike water, so get some good door seals whilst you are getting door done, also a few pieces of sound foam on your walls will cut out those highs bouncing about, but reverb is good right, spend more time in bathroom
good luck
