New Milford, CT (May 14, 2008)–RealTraps has announced a new use and mounting arrangement for its existing line of bass traps and acoustic panels.
MiniGobos are available in a variety of sizes and configurations to favor either isolation, bass trapping, or broadband absorption. MiniGobos are based on RealTraps’ standard line of MiniTraps, MicroTraps, and MondoTraps, using hinges to join two or more panels together as a single, self-supporting unit.
As bass traps or broadband absorbers, MiniGobos reportedly avoid the need for stands or wall mounting. Users can place the hinged panels at right angles in each corner for bass trapping, or in a shallow “V” at reflection points. For corner bass traps, standard style MiniTraps or MondoTraps are used; the HF style panels should be used for reflection points.
Any number of MiniGobos or MicroGobos can be connected to totally surround any size drum set. The same panels can be used when recording, and again in the control room when mixing.
According to RealTraps co-owner Ethan Winer, “Besides their obvious use as affordable instrument gobos in recording studios, our new portable panel arrangement is equally attractive for renters. This lets people treat their rooms without mounting or installation. Even if you own your own home, often it’s desirable to be able to remove treatment from the room when entertaining visitors.”
