Rehearsal Room Construction

Post by Greenlander » Sun Dec 03, 2006 7:41 am

I'm looking at building more than one rehearsal room inside an existing space from scratch. Can anyone refer me to any resources where I can find out more about the standard (and maybe also ideal, so I can compare) method for construction of a rehearsal room.

I'm sure there are a bunch of books out there on soundproofing, accoustics, etc for studios but I'm hoping to find some info on rehearsal rooms specifically, just because the studio approach would be prohibitively expensive for rehearsal rooms, I would imagine.
My setup: brain into muscles into hands into fingers into guitar into cable into pedal into cable into amp into air into mic into cable into box no 1 into cable into box no2

sae has some nice documents on their website.

greengluecompany has some great tech docs with nice illustrations RE construction techniques etc.

I'd start at SAE for design ideas... and get your building ideas from greenglue.

Thanks for the ideas, that's cool. I couldn't find the sae docs on their website tho, would you mind throwing out a link, I'd appreciate it.

sure thing.

here you go:

It's almost always cheaper to spend the $$ up front rather than try to make a bits-n-pieces approach perform better. I've learned that the hard way many-a-time.

Hope it goes smoothly for you.
