Thanks, the floor does have me worried. As of now are thinking of 2 layers of homasote with greenglue in between below the floor, does that make sense? I don't think we can do poured concrete. I like the idea of 2 windows (one on interior and one on exterior of double stud wall if I am understanding...

Glass Block Windows

I'm building a rooftop addition for band practice, need some windows for light but not necessarily ventilation. I like the look of these, and they seem like a relatively good, cheap middle road option. Walls will be double layer sheetrock with greenglue. Anybody have any experience with these in a s...

Just an honest question-- Have you checked your condo agreement, or run anything past the board on this one? Condos can be tough. It would really suck if you spent money, finally figured-out how to do what you wanted to, but couldn't due to regulations. Likewise your local municipality building cod...

Not sure if they have it, but I think the Magic Shop in NY does a lot of archival type work, so they might be worth reaching out to.

Sounds tough. The only thing in our business that can help other than mass-air-mass is conscientious scheduling. This is a good point. I know I'm not going to get "soundproof". I need to get it good enough so that I can play drums for a few hours a day, and full band practice for a few hours on Sun...

My personal suggestion would be to look at reducing the sound in the first place, via isolation cabinets/direct boxes/amp modelers for your guitars/bass/keys, electronic drums, and headphones/in ears instead of a PA. Thanks, I appreciate you taking the time to respond, but this just isn't going to ...

New room on ceiling for practice / recording

Hi all, I'm hoping some of you can help me with some questions on construction of a new space. My wife and I own a condo (top two stories) of a ~100 year old wood frame row house. We are planning some renovations to the second (top) floor, and we are also thinking that if we are ever going to add a ...

FS: Yamaha PM1000 4 Channel Preamp

4 Channel Preamp, each channel has input and output control, input and output transformers. Includes an external power supply. I purchased this probably around 2008, if memory serves from a fellow Tape Opper, though I couldn't find the relevant info from my Email or PM Mailbox. Was working fine when...

This reminds me of early mountain goats stuff most of which I think was directly to a cassette recorder.

Repair / Tech in NY / NJ

I have an old Langevin AM1A that someone modded years ago for direct outs, it can be pretty special, but it's got some quirks. I haven't been able to find any schematics, and even if I could I wouldn't know where to begin. Can anyone recommend a great tech in NY / NJ who might be interested in worki...
