I bought some 1 1/2" PVC pipe and fittings from home depot and built a frame that breaks down for storage... Hang some packing blankets on it and voila! Portable Vocal booth that sounds amazing at a fraction of the cost of any of the above  Rolling Eyes

Sweetwater has completely sold out of the big one!


I wonder if this thread has anything to do with that?

Any chance you could put up a picture of it?  I'd like to see it.

Here is an overall view of one side panel.  I made two of these in mirror image to each other.

Close up detail of the cross beam socket... I did not glue in the cross beams so that it will break down for storage
The bungy cord is used to pull the two side panels tight to each other so the cross beams don't fall out and collapse on the client

The spring clamps are used to hold the packing blankets on... I originally intended to cut the blankets to size, and lace them into the frames, but have never gotten around to that.

Here it is set up in the overly crowded live booth!  Blankets omitted for clarity.
The blankets are hung on two sides and the back, forming a three sided booth with the singer facing out.. this controls room reflections entering the mic from behind and beside the singer. It does a VERY good job of removing room reflections from the mic.

Great when you want a tight dry sound for acoustic gtrs as well.

I've done something very similar, except with heavy duty boom mic stands. Of course then you can't use those stands for actual microphones.

Oh shoot!  Yes, they are ABS plastic (drain/sewer pipe) rather than PVC.  My bad!  It comes in black as a stock color.

I know it's not an original idea... I'm glad to see others have designed the same type of setup.  Necessity being the mother of invention and all (or was that Frank Zappa) Very Happy

An alternative to the SE Reflexion filter you may want to consider is the RealTraps Portable Vocal Booth: http://www.realtraps.com/p_pvb.htm

I've never tried one, but it sure looks like it would get the job done.

I am very happy with my PVB from Real Traps.  Last month I tracked some vocals on a church (long reverb) and they came out great with minimal impact from church acoustics.  Also, the PVB is larger.
