New Blue Man Group Rehearsal Space Outfitted With Auralex Acoustics StudioFoam and T’Fusor Diffusors

“The rehearsal space needed to be able to accommodate multiple drummer/percussionists and loud amps, so we needed to reduce the ring and maintain a lot of control, but still have good transients and a lot of midrange detail"

The new New York City rehearsal space for theatrical and recording artists Blue Man Group has been outfitted with StudioFoam wedges and T’Fusor Sound diffusors from Auralex Acoustics/

“When we moved into the new space, we had to get the vocal booth as dead as possible,“ says Chris Mulhauser, musical instrument manager of Blue Man Productions. “Auralex played a big part in that through their StudioFoam and T’Fusor Diffusors products, they work great.

“The rehearsal space needed to be able to accommodate multiple drummer/percussionists and loud amps, so we needed to reduce the ring and maintain a lot of control, but still have good transients and a lot of midrange detail,” continues Mulhauser.  “Being able to absorb and diffuse helped this room fill its role much better.”

Auralex’s two-inch StudioFoam Wedges can be used to treat small – to medium-sized areas including vocal booths, control rooms and sound studios, as they effectively kill standing waves and flutter echoes. 

Made from a lightweight-yet-sturdy high-impact thermoplastic, T’Fusor Sound Diffusors drop easily into ceiling grids and are wall mountable with pushpins, staples, nails, Tubetak, Velcro or 2-sided tape. T’Fusors imparts a sense of controlled spaciousness and work best when mounted with a varying alignment of the “T” pattern.
