Hi there, I’m trying 2 turn one of my bedrooms into a music studio for when I practice cello. The bedroom is small and when I play in there it’s very loud, such that I have to have ear plugs.

I have access to some acoustic treatments but I don’t know how to use them. The room is not a perfect square either and has some little alcoves that make it difficult to run calculations using some of the equations provided on this site.

I know very little about how to improve sound quality in a room and was hoping I could get some tips or get pointed in the right direction. Some basic info on the room is that it’s your standard sheetrock over wood frame Construction. The floor is that interlocking exercise room flooring from when the room was a gym.

I have access to 2 pillar style bass traps, a couple of panels of foam that has the rows of triangles cut into it. A large block of foam designed for a corner that looks kind of like a sea urchin, some foam with the wavy bubble like texture, and enough polyester fiber soundboard to cover every surface in the room.

Ready? Go!

Hey Dennis i dunno if I’ll get this but i tested the range on my cello and it’s 65.5 Hz at the low end and goes up to about 1100hz, but most of my playing is in the midrange at about 525 hz
