FreeStand Bass Trap

  • $0.00

FEATURES:

FreeStand Bass TrapThe GIK Acoustics FreeStand Bass Trap is ideal for any room where wall mounted bass traps cannot be used or for rooms with multiple purposes.

The FreeStand Bass Trap covers 5 feet of vertical wall space making it ideal to straddle corners.  When placed against the wall, the supports leave a 4″ gap between the FreeStand Bass Trap and the wall, which increases low end absorption.

The FreeStand Bass Trap comes with two stainless steel supports (or “feet”) which are easy to install. Simply place the FreeStand Bass Trap wherever you need it in the room. Move it around, use it anywhere, then store it away out of sight when not in use.

“We all love our toys, but one aspect of the studio that often gets overlooked is the room itself. Your listening environment influences every decision you make about recording and mixing, from how much low end the kick drum needs to how loud the tambourine should be in the chorus. Sadly, many people ignore this fact of life: the room is the most important component in the monitoring chain.” – Steve La Cerra, Electronic Musician magazine, Sept 2015

Room Acoustics, The Basics: Bass Traps, Acoustic Panels, Diffusion

    This video explores the basics of room acoustics. Most of us use existing rooms such as bedrooms, living rooms or basements for a listening space versus high end recording studios that are designed with acoustics in mind. However there are ways to treat average-sized rooms to be utilized as control rooms, home theaters or two-channel listening rooms.
 

First Reflection Points

    If you've spent any time looking for information about treating your space, chances are you've run across the term "early reflection point", "First Reflection Points" or "mirror point". These are just semi-technical terms used to describe a phenomenon common to all enclosed spaces no matter what size: that the direct sound from the loudspeakers will arrive at the listener's ears before the reflected sound does. This video explains finding and treating First Reflection Points.

There's a difference between a GIK Acoustics product and all others on the market.  We separate ourselves from other acoustic treatment manufacturers in 6 primary areas.

QUALITY MATERIALS MEAN QUALITY PRODUCTS:

GIK Acoustics Bright White and Off White sqGIK Acoustics products are beyond simple do-it-yourself panels that are found on the market today. We start with only the highest-quality materials that will not sag or leak over time, then we build every panel by hand employing a unique two-frame system. Unlike other companies who use inexpensive materials, GIK Acoustics panels are crafted with quality insulation material, fabrics and hardwood plywoods.  We start with absorptive insulation material that is intended for room acoustics - not cheap mineral wool whose main purpose is to insulate a ship's engine room. We then use carefully selected hardwood plywoods - not cheap imports - to construct our frames.  The difference and chief advantage is dimensional stability.  Crossbanded layers and balanced construction mean that hardwood plywood won't shrink, swell or warp as much as lumber.  To finish our panels we offer an array of fine fabrics - from our standard 9 options to the full line of Guilford of Maine panel fabrics. Our team of professional builders handcraft each acoustic panel, bass trap and diffusor to exacting standards ensuring the most attractive, effective and dependable products.  The difference is our customers are secure in knowing they receive the very best made-to-order acoustic treatments available.
