4.0 out of 5 stars Improves sound. Quality set., January 31, 2013
This review is from: Auralex Garage Band Acoustic Kit to Optimize the Sonic Quality for Guitar, Bass, Drum Kit and Mic Stands (Electronics)

The drum pad is quality material and lays flat right out of the box (after being rolled up in the box). There is also a tote for the drum mat. The velcro on the drum petal keeps the drum from sliding. The amp bases are constructed well and easy to carry. Definitely improves the sound.

As for size. The drum mat fits a basic drum set. And the amp bases all are sized right.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Quality, January 23, 2013

The Auralex GARAGEBANDKIT Garage Band Kit is a top quality product for sound isolation in a home studio environment.

The kit contains two raised amp isolated pads, one called a GRAMMA and the larger one called the GREAT GRAMMA. These can be used for bass or guitar amps. They perform very well, sound becomes cleaner and 'room' sound is reduced to a more studio like quality.

Also there is a pad for drums. It is sticky on the bottom to keep from moving (if you have ever put a rug under a drum set you know that the kicking of the bass drum pedal will move the rug underneath causing from time to time for the drummer to re-set the kit). It can be placed on the floor or put on a drum riser if you have one. Again, the change in sound quality is noticeable right away upon set up.

Lastly it comes with 3 Mic Stand isolators that are designed to go on a mic stand with a tripod bottom, one isolator on each leg. Even though they were made for tripod foot mic stands, they can also be used for mic stands with round bases with a little experimenting and testing the best positions for them.

Again, these are top quality products. Once you set up with them and compare sound difference, it becomes immediately apparent this is a pro grade kit.

In my home studio, when I am doing recording everything is direct input so there is no problem with noise or need for isolation. However sometimes we like to plug in and play live, either to just jam for fun or to try to write new material. This kit really makes the live playing much better sounding and gives better control over volume levels of each instrument.

Great product with many uses.

All the products in this set work very good in making sound the best it can be. It basically deadens the vibrations of loud music so it is more true by creating a studio like atmosphere which is good for a music room in the home. But, I thought wrongly that this included the stand that made the drum pad rise off the ground. The drum mat itself is a bit sticky on the bottom. I am not sure if it is supposed to be this way or the glue wasn't applied right so putting this on the floor without cleaning it or putting tape around the sticky area wouldn't be the greatest idea. Other than that, the quality of the mat is good. It was the main thing I was looking forward too in the set, so I have to point out my slight disappointment in that one piece of the set. I would recommend this to people who have a limited space for their band and want to make the most of it and not upset their neighbors in the process.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Set - Heavy - Carry Case = Pleasant Surprise Extra!, January 6, 2013
This review is from: Auralex Garage Band Acoustic Kit to Optimize the Sonic Quality for Guitar, Bass, Drum Kit and Mic Stands (Electronics)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a nice quality set specifically made for those with a garage band. Now, it should be said that we do not actually have a garage band in our garage but rather a 2nd bedroom with small studio set-up. Unfortunately, the entire house has tile floors which is nearly as bad as concrete - maybe worse. So, when this came up for review it was a "no brainer" to try out.

I should also mention, we've been using gym mats as a substitute in the past. Not the absolute best substitute mind you but a cheap and affordable one.

The first thing you should know is that this is a heavy set so be prepared. The box is big and bulky but also hefty in weight which is indicative of the overall product. Very dense. The large floor mat has a somewhat sticky surface to keep it from sliding; a good touch but given the weight, really not absolutely necessary and frankly, a tad annoying. However, it also comes with a very nice gig bag which was an unexpected surprise.

All of the pieces are dense with a textured finish that will be a bit of a pain to keep clean especially if moving around or in a garage. I would have preferred a texture that made is slightly easier to clean off especially given the use on floors, garage and moving about.

Now, having said that, the bag is a nice extra, these are substantial, hefty and have a pretty durable feel - I do not expect them to fall apart anytime soon. Impact on sound was immediate especially given the tile floors...concrete would be very similar.

Size is ample - don't expect a lot of left over but they didn't scrimp so no worry about having to "make do" with sizing issues.

All in all, another solid product with acceptable price point from Aurolex.
