Default Show us your Drum Studios

I have always wondered what the term "studio" means on this site as many people say they spent the day in their "studio" working on this or that. How many of you actually have a studio or are you just in a drum room, basement, garage etc. I don't record much so my drums are in my drum room. The back of my house. The room looks larger than it is as this photo was taken from the opposite corner. Show us your drum room or studio.

My drum studio now has someone living in it. My drums have been relegated to the garage. :(

Not current.

Moved it to the other end of the same wall and hung the overheads from the ceiling instead from stands, but it is the same room.

It's not so much a studio as it is an unfinished basement...



This is an old photo though. I have 4 kits set up now.

I've basically hi-jacked 1/2 of an unfinished basement and share a storage room ( heads, spare parts, hoops, drum boxes ) behind it with our Christmas decorations. Studio is a small PA, a Roland VR09 keyboard, Focusrite 8i18 interface, and a PC. Drums are on a 7x10 carpet remnant. I can direct mic all the drums on one kit or as I usually do, just use two overheads, snare and bass drum. Anyway, here's a pic of my little piece of heaven. :-)

Since these pictures were taken I have put 3 layers of drywall on the inner walls and ceiling and 3 layers on the outer walls (outer ceiling already had 3 layers of drywall before I started insulating). Next come the doors. Gettin' there...

My house is concrete block, so containing the sound was a matter of putting acoustic foam on the windows and door. I have a bass trap behind the kit, and the foam covered door is straight across from the bass drum. I have 8 mics---3 toms, snare, kick, hats (pencil condenser), and 2 overheads (LDC) I can get some great drum/guitar/vocal tracks in this room, so I would definitely call it a studio!

I don't take a great photo but here is my room:



It is a great place to work from- the house was part of the Blenheim estate, which was the place Winston Churchill grew up.
It was built sometime in the 1700's and sold off the estate in 1837.
The beam in the room is over 300 years old- ceiling height is 20ft.

cbphoto,

Curious, how are you hanging your moving blankets that are around the kit? Some kind of stands or are the metal rods attached to ceiling joists above? I'm buying a new house and will likely be employing that method to treat the "studio" space.

Thanks!

Jason

This whole thread makes me jealous. I can't play real drums at home and only get to use my kits at practice or gig. At least I got the electronic practice kit but ya'll have it made!

I bought a 12-pack of moving blankets from Amazon and punched grommets into the corners & middle of each side. I use heavy duty Velcro« straps to suspend them from cheap metal conduit pipe.The pipes are suspended on medium-duty light stands using a mafer clamps. The setup has to be easily collapsed because sometimes I need the space for work.

My studio space is very live, with plenty of natural reverb. The blankets attenuate the high frequencies a bit, but don't do anything to the lower frequencies. I'd love to build some rolling acoustic gobos but can't justify the loss of workspace they'd cause.

Hey guys, I just put those foam panels up yesterday and this morning half of them is on the floor. They seem to go up ok a few fell while I working on it. I am using a lower strength spray adhesive, Locktite brand. I figured it would work for light weight application's like this. Maybe tabs? would work better. Any suggestion's

You must have really been rocking the house! lol! Did you notice any change in volume when they were up? I'm thinking of doing this at my place, thought the rolling panels have gotten me seriously thinking!

I have not really played anything back there yet, fooled around for a few minutes earlier to see how my hand would do. I was able to use my right hand enough to get by with simple things so me and the wife are heading for a practice session here shortly. I also had a very thick heavy blanket I set up on the back wall behind those new Blackout (light and noise reducing) blinds. So I think in all it will make my neighbor happier and hopefully have a little sonic benefits. I placed the foam panels a little above the cymbals and close to were my overheads will be. When I start recording we will see if there is any difference in the new set-up compared to old video's. Foam and blinds run me about $80 so if nothing else it looks more semi/pro I think. I also have the 2 monitors back there now to help me tailor my sound a little better.

This is mine, a little more modest than some of the epic rooms on here, but does the job nicely.

Since this photo was taken, I've bought a new rack and put 2 toms back up top and reverted to my Prolite snare to match the kit.

Have also changed for my Paiste Signatures too as they record much nicer than the Zildjians.

Not a studio per se. More like an all-purpose room. It's basically a Tuff-shed that I had some sound reduction and room treatment installed. I use it for drum and PA storage, and drum practice. In the past I've used it for band rehearsal and some recording. I just built a drum shelf so that frees up some floor space.


Here's a photo of my snare drums all lined up. From the left side: Chad, Bob, Roger, Cherry, and Sam-I-Yam.
