Soundproofing a shed - will acoustic sound board work?
« on: January 05, 2016, 09:11:04 PM »
Ive had a shed built on some stilts at the bottom of my garden.

I plan to teach drums, band practice and record in there - so noise will be a problem

we plan to soundproof and have been advised to use steel resilient bars filled with rock wool and then sheets of acoustic sound board stuck onto the bars.

will this be enough

any help much appreciated

That all depends on how far the neighbors are...

If they are close you have no where near enough mass to get a quality reduction...if you play in your house does it bother your neighbors?

Give me a call so I can give you access to a drop box slide show for building a drum room shed.

Hi randy thank you for your reply - i won't be able to call as I am in the uK - is there an email i can contact you on?

We have the shed down at the bottom of the garden about 15m away from the closest house

Here is my e-mail

This will require a lot of mass because of the distance.
