Upgrade Your Sound with Drum Risers: Unveiling Studio Necessities

Shaun Snaith

In the realm of music production and recording, attention to detail can make all the difference. Among the unsung heroes of the studio world are drum risers, also known as drum isolation platforms. These seemingly humble structures play a crucial role in enhancing the quality of your recordings, isolating sound, and optimizing your studio's acoustic environment. Let's delve into the world of drum risers and discover why they are vital for studios.

The Heartbeat of Studio Excellence

1. Superior Sound Isolation: Drum risers are the secret ingredient in achieving pristine audio recordings. By elevating the drum kit, they minimize vibrations transmitted to the floor. This ensures that low-frequency sounds, like kick drums and bass, are minimised, reducing the amount of disruptive noises traveling through the building structure, causing annoying noise in neighbouring spaces. This level of sound isolation is invaluable in residential and commercial studio settings.

2. Enhanced Acoustic Quality: In a recording studio, acoustics matter—a lot. Drum risers contribute to improving the acoustics of your space by reducing vibrations ad resonations. Musicians and audio engineers will experience cleaner, more controlled sound, allowing for precise modification and adjustments to achieve the desired tone and timbre.

3. Vibration Control: Vibrations from a drum kit can be problematic. Without a drum isolation platform, they can transfer to microphones and other instruments, creating an undesirable rumble in your recordings. These risers act as a buffer, preventing such vibrations and maintaining the purity of your audio.

4. Customizable Options: At Advanced Acoustics, we offer a range of drum riser options to suit your specific needs. Our basic drum risers, available in 6ft x 8ft and 8ft x 8ft sizes, provide a solid foundation, but you must source a suitable platform such as 25mm thick Ply or MDF. For added convenience, our comprehensive kits include risers and cement fibre floorboards in sizes 1.8m x 2.4m and 2.4m x 2.4m. These kits provide a ready-to-use solution, saving you time and effort.

5. Drummer's Comfort: The comfort of the drummer matters too. Elevating the drum kit with a riser ensures that the drummer is seated at an optimal height, reducing fatigue during extended recording sessions. The result is better performances and more creative freedom.
