With that out of the way....
A go-between, also known as a gobo, is a great mobile way to control sound. It can be used to help isolate an instrument or lessen the reflections and reverberation of a space. This is my work around for my home project studio since I do not have a recording booth. You can buy a gobo at places like Guitar Center, or online for about $100. Since I am a musician on a budget, I consulted with a fellow producer friend of mine and made my own in about 20 minutes, with about $30 worth of parts from Home Depot.
In order to build a gobo, you will need the following items:
One 8” “Ready Tube” Cardboard molding form (This came in lengths of 3 feet)
One pack of 8” Cable Ties (Black)
One bag of ½” Phillips Screws /Nuts
One 3 pack of plastic Taping Knifes
One can of spray adhesive
One pack of Foam Air conditioner Side Insulation Panels (One pack contains 2 panels)
Tools you will need:
A Philips Screwdriver
A felt tip marker like a Sharpie
Black spray paint (optional)
A drill and a small bit.
Step 1: Measure and Cut the Cardboard Molding Form
Step 2: Cut an 18" Section of the Cardboard Molding Form
Trim off the sides till it's about half of the 8" tube.
Step 3: Mount Taping Knife With the Screws to Make a Mounting Bracket
Mark 4 dot's for screw holes on the taping knife and use a drill to make holes.
Drill corresponding holes in the CENTER the of 18" piece of tube and use the screws and nuts to connect them together using a Phillips Screwdriver. Make sure it is attached to the INSIDE of the tube and the screw heads are facing you.
