Jammin With Rolled Rubber FlooringPosted on: August 23rd, 2012 by Ben Gonzalez
Greeting mat enthusiasts! It’s been a long and eventful week here at MatsMatsMats.com and I’m a little excited at some of the traffic we’ve been getting. My customer from Percussion Design is hard at work on a prototype practice drum (see previous post relating to this) and we’re really curious to see how our product stacks up.
On a semi-related note, a customer and fellow twiddly-fiddler (this is an industry term for musician) from Kilauea happened upon our rolled rubber to lay over his concrete floor in a jam/rehearsal space. I can’t stress enough how great this is for this application! Concrete is not only uncomfortable to stand on for hours at a time, but it also helps low end frequencies travel and high frequencies bounce inside the room. This results in a boomy, louder-than wanted sound which leads to faster induced ear fatigue. Aside form this, one of the great overlooked benefits of our rolled rubber flooring is that rubber is way easier on the legs of drum kits, amplifiers, and any priced instruments that might be accidentally dropped by clumsy band mates. To take it a step further, I’m reminded that if rubber isn’t your first aesthetic choice, this is a great product to use as sub-floor which will help to greatly deaden the volume of the rehearsal space. This ought to keep very loving, caring girlfriends/wives happy when they’re trying to not listen to your next number one hit.
