I have a tiny walk-in-closet in my apartment that doubles as a recording booth. Its located in a part of the building where sound dont seem to travel so much. So I can do (moderate level) overdubs late at night and my neighbours cant hear a thing. Wich is an absolute blessing.
Ive managed to just about cram my 2×12 cabinet + tube amp in there. With a little planning, tweaking and some hand-clap-testing all the linen, soft cases, clothes and shelving dampens very well with a minimum of standing waves.
However… I got a bit bored with the Greybacks in my 2×12 and decided to swap them out with a Celestion G12-75 + a Fane Speaker I had laying around. Alas… the Fane didnt fit (ARGHHHHH)
Anyways. Im very pleased with swapping one speaker. The G12-75 is way more responsive and has more variety. Plus miking positioning makes a big difference. Greybacks distort no matter you do to them. Not a lot – but enough to be annoying. Now I need to figure out a way to fit the Fane in the cabinet without doing too much cutting and modding. Wish me luck 🙂
