So do to certain circumstances, I'm forced to practice in the basement of our house. It's a finished basement and it doesn't disturb family or neighbors, so I can practice any time of day. What is bad is the set up of it. The dimensions are H:8' x W:12' x L:24'. Concrete floor covered with indoor/outdoor carpet, paneled walls, and plastered ceiling. I get no feed back at all down there and was wondering if someone could suggest a way to make it more acoustically friendly. I find myself working very hard during practice sessions and it's become quite a drag.... I know the low ceiling has a lot to do with it. The carpet and furniture helped a bit, but it still feels "stuffy", "dead", "not resonant" (pick one). Any help to improve acoustics would be appreciated. I know it won't ever sound like a band room or concert hall, but I know there have to be ways to make practice sessions easier. Thanks Folks!!!
