New Stage Sound Dampening!


Check out the awesome DIY sound dampening we did for our stage area!

We used 2’x4′ Owens Corning 703 sound insulation panels, cut those in half, and covered them in the cheapest duck cloth we could find. We used upholstery spray adhesive to wrap the canvas around the panels, and then stuffed them into the 2×2 framing using a putty knife.

Thanks to Board Member Russ Fish and Sound Crew Manager Gabe Seavello for convincing us it was finally time to find the cash to make this happen, and for their help sourcing and designing this solution. Thanks to Make.Shift tenant Devin Champlin for donating his time to help with framing, and tenant Andrew Nickerson for the wrapping help.

It sounds so much better!
