If you want to achieve great sound from your drum kit, the room you’re recording in is a huge factor in producing optimal sound. Finding a room with the right balance, character and acoustics to compliment your drums, especially in a recording, might be bit of a challenge. Many rooms in home studios are often too small, too live, too dead, too bright or too dark, and it can be a mess to compensate for bad room modes in a mix. Another issue with drums is that they are very loud by nature, and neighbors can present another challenge when choosing a room for a home studio. Putting that to the side for now, we’ll look at some interesting options you can consider when setting up a recording space.
