Drums are one of the most powerful percussion instruments to date. Traditional drums can easily take over a room with their acoustically overpowering capacity. There is no denying how loud these drum sets can be. Often, they may need some form of treatment to get better control over the volume that they are capable of producing. Other instruments that are part of most band ensembles such as keyboards or guitars are specifically created to be played using a variety of sound systems and amplifiers. These systems ensure complete control over the sound volume that these instruments produce. For some garage bands or low-budget bands, their set-up often includes all electrical instruments that they will use, microphones, and an acoustic drum set. This type of set-up often results in one of two scenarios. The first scenario involves the drums being too loud while the second scenario involves increasing the band volume to compensate for the loud sounds that the drums produce. Either way, anyone listening to these bands with this kind of set-up will end up not enjoying the music because of the unfavorable listening environment they are dealing with.
To this day, most bands, especially the drummers, still prefer to use traditional drum sets over their electronic variants. That is why many musicians are still searching for the best solution to use the drum set that they prefer while ensuring that they provide their audience with a favorable listening environment. Fortunately, the use of drum isolation booths or simply drum booths has proven to be an effective solution for these types of situations.
Drum isolation booths or drum booths are now distributed from a variety of drum manufacturers around the world. They are often ordered in custom-made styles or kits. These isolation booths are often enclosed structures that come with an enclosed top and a circular shape. The dimensions of these booths will have to vary from customer to customer. Dimensions for popular drum booths, though, can be 6 feet tall by 6 feet wide by 7 feet deep. Their shape is often semi-circular. They have around five to seven clear acrylic sections that wrap around the sides and front of the booth. They come with sound absorption panels that are covered by specialized fabric and are wrap around the booth to enclose the area that remains. This enclosure also includes two to three sound panels found on top of the structure, which services as a ceiling. Some drum booth manufacturers offer their customers different additions inside the booth such as fans and lighting.
When you use a drum booth, you can now have more control over the volume that your drum set makes as well as utilize microphones to amplify the sounds as necessary. All these things result in a much better mix of music. At the same time, you give your audience a more pleasant listening environment. The use of drum booths offers many benefits for drummers and professional bands alike. Not only do these booths offer portability but also you can customize them accordingly, depending on your needs. Some customization options include adding less or more sound-absorbing panels on both the inside and the outside of the acrylic panels.
