Is that a thing, or do you mean just a 4-sided gobo "fort"?

The whole "shaped like a chimney" thing has me thinking it's something more substantial than that, like the sound is "vented" out the top?

I envision something like a large, lined cylinder, based on what you posted. Seems like a really good idea.

For posterity sake, here's the entire paragraph:

"We also had a couple of guitar traps, similar to the Eastlake design," Harries continues. "They were like chimneys, with an open bottom end filled with hanging rockwall panels. When a guitar amp was inside one of the traps, you could actually play pretty loud without the sound spilling onto anything else."

Really want some details on this.

I would imagine it to be something like a fireplace, with the chimney attatched to it. Coat the whole inside with rock wool and and place the amp facing into the "fireplace". Even if the top of the chimney is open, I imagine it would lower the SPL quite a bit.

I read the whole page you linked. I love the piano 'cove' idea, too

That could be it.
