Sometimes it seems like old gear flies out of doorways and sticks to me - that can be painful if it's a Hammond organ. I've acquired a bunch of ASC Tube Traps. I'd love to build an attack wall in my control room, but I don't think I have room. I'm going to try, though. Other uses I can see - building a circle around a singer to kill reflections from my living room, putting a circle around drums for the same reason. Do any of you use tube traps? If so, how do you use them and in what circumstances?
In younger days, I built my own tube traps out of rigid Owens Corning 703 pipe insulator tubes--quite likely what ASC uses imo. I wrapped them in chicken wire, left the vapor guard on one side and covered in Guilford of Maine fabric. I had 27 of them in, ranging in size from maybe a 4 - 10" diameter half rounds to probably a 24" or larger full round. Most were full round and probably in the 16-20" range. I had a listening room in my apartment and placed the traps in corners (2 high) and on the simple fractions of the walls (halfway point, 1/4 way point). That room was tremendously articulate and transparent. Played back from my extremely tweaked out Maplenoll Athena turntable through all tube electronics, things like timp hits had a lot of focus and power--much like the real thing played live. Good classical recordings had excellent side-to-side and front-to-back imaging.
