basicly my band and i jam in a shed. 20 foot by 10 foot, pritty nice size for a 3 piece band! We have to stop playing at 10:30 coz as you know acustic drums are loud!
It just so happens the drummers parents (owners of the shed) have big ass bricks left over (50)from building walls in the back garden. We worked it out that we could make a wall seperating the shed into 1/3 and 2/3's. In the 1/3 section we will break into /3's again, 2/3 for drums, and 1/2 for a singing booth. The drum room is entered through the singing booth, and the singing booth is entered through a door beside the entrance of the shed.
We plan to put a window between the drum room and the main room, to which we usually hang out, listen to our tracks, and where we will be playing guitars and so on.
What is the best way to kill the volume on the drums with that set up? The roof on the shed is a standard roof, and we know all the sound (pritty much) gets out from it. There is a 3 foot gap from the top of the wall we will be building to the shed roof. Whats the best way to cut the noise down on the new roof thats going over the drum room? How should we go about it?
Another thing, i was looking at random pics on the internet of studio windows and they seem to be double glased windows that if you look at them from the side they go like this \ / . Other than light refraction, how will this help sound proofing?
Would you say a concrete wall would be better than a stud with rockwool? We also have carpet lining (the black wavey stuff) to line the new walls of the drum room aswell. Anything we can do we will do, but with most cases the budget is pap!
