DIY semi iso booth on low budget

I'm Building an semi iso booth, because I want to record drums and guitar amps in my apartment without complainings from others in my building. It is almost finist but I hoop for some feedback.

My building process was...

- floating floor on special foam.
- building the wall's ceiling and door with drywall.
- kit all cracks etc.
- first isolation polystyrene as vibration isolation (I know it is a poor sound iso)
- second isolation 11cm thick glaswool
- insite finish with cotton fabric

total cost was ca. 350 euro

I hoop that I didn't make to much mistakes. There for I'm asking for some feedback.

Greetz,

Elmer

well, it's a tad hard to see.

if it sounds good, it works though.

it looks okay from here, if you need better isolation, double up the drywall.

ThanX for you reply! I've tested with an guitar amp and I could turn volume quite loud. The sound inside is dry, not much reflexion. But I like dry recordings 'cause it give more control over effects that can be add. Unfortiantly I don't have the equipment to analize on freq. responce.
