Auralex Acoustics announces a new updated version of the HoverMat – a portable acoustic barrier designed for use under drum kits, percussion setups and other sound producing instruments.
The updated HoverMat combines Auralex’s SheetBlok Sound Barrier with a non-slip durable fabric that is laminated together to produce a sound barrier that can improve acoustical isolation and clarify your drum’s tone.
The HoverMat is designed to foster decoupling from hollow stages and floors, helping to optimize the sound of drums and percussion instruments by minimizing resonance from the surface on which the instruments are resting. Designed for portability, the HoverMat can be a replacement for rugs that drummers have been using over the years. Percussionists, especially those playing cajons and other floor standing instruments, can benefit from an improvement of tone, clarity and reduced vibration with the stage surface.
The updated version of the HoverMat is currently in use in the studio and on tour with Rich Redmond (Jason Aldean), Daru Jones (Jack White), Derrick Wright (Adele), Jordan Perlson (Adrian Belew) and Peter Erskine (Weather Report/Peter Erskine Trio).
