Realtraps has announced their new GoboTrap system, consisting of a light-weight carriage with wheels that accommodates either standard or “Gobo” MiniTraps.
The traps are stacked sideways on the carriage to create a gobo that’s four feet wide, and two or three traps can be attached for a total height of either four or six feet. The GoboTrap carriage hovers very low to the floor to minimize sound leakage under the traps, and the wheels are large enough to roll easily on thick carpet or over wires.
Either standard MiniTraps or newer specially designed GoboTraps may be used with the GoboTrap carriage, depending on the application. To create an acoustically dead sounding area or an enclosed booth within a larger space, or for use as a large portable absorber to change the liveness of a room, you’ll use standard MiniTraps. For maximum isolation, perhaps to surround a drum set or loud instrument amplifier, GoboTraps are more appropriate.
GoboTraps are available in standard and HF versions. Standard GoboTraps are absorbent on one side and reflective on the other, where the HF type is absorbent on both sides. Both are built with an internal MDF barrier to provide sufficient mass to effectively block sound from passing through. GoboTraps are sold in a variety of configurations—as a package including two or three MiniTraps or GoboTraps, as GoboTrap panels only, or as the carriage alone for use with existing MiniTraps.
Additional details, along with room treatment advice, are provided at the Realtraps site.
