Sound Booth Desk/Furniture
Hello, This is my first post on this great message board.
We are thinking about renovating our sound booth to make it more aesthetically pleasing. I have not been able to find many sources for desks/furniture for sound booths...for housing the mixer(s), audio components, equalizers, etc. We may end up having someone in the congregation custom build something, but I was wondering if anyone out there might be willing to share any sources of such furniture.
Also, if any of you would be willing to share any photos of your sound booth showing how it's organized, I would love to see how others have done it.
Thanks a million!
I am not for sure but lets ask this question becuase I am looking for a good editing desk that can hold two dual monitor computers...with monitor
Where do you buy your church media furniture or do you build it yourself?
I am thinking of building our own.
Here are some websites I have found but most media furniture is expensive.
Some are for audio and some are just for regular office furniture.
This list is from about 6 months of off and on research and I am still looking for the right price. But I think I will end up building.
Welcome to the forum. You're going to like it here.
There are some photos and plans for our booth in my gallery. We just completed a major overhaul of it. All of it was custom built except for the 19" racks that we used. Take a look starting here: http://www.churchmedia.net/MXC/showp...cat=500&page=3
Oh yes, Media Furniture can be INCREDIBLY expensive (thousands of dollars).
Just made me think of a good edit system alternative (but doesn't help with your question).
I found a cheap solution ($129.00), but I don't know if it is made anymore -
Bush Furniture made a computer desk that was ideal for an edit system set up.
The "model" number is MM80900
As far as your sound booth, it would probably be best to design and build your own and include some rack mount kits. Just leave room for expansion.
IMHO, it's far cheaper to have someone locally build something.
In the day job, we've spent $3 grand+ on a single video editing
desk. We spent $1200 on another one which is more comfortable to sit at.
I spent $3 grand 2 years ago to have a semi-custom roadcase built
for our youth room.
You can buy a lot of cabinetry work locally for $3 grand.
The real key is finding someone who can make it ergonomic.
One thing that I don't think has been mentioned yet is the ability to get at the back of the equipment. Our sound area was hand built several years ago and we have already out grown it and we also do not have a way to access the back side of any of the equipment very easily. Just something to think about.
In our new facilities, we had the contractor build the counter to our specs. One of my requirements was that it have between 29" and 30" clearance underneath to slide in our floor standing racks. They did a good job and our racks fit perfectly.
As for the racks that I mentioned...we purchased them both at our local Guitar Center. They are made by KK Audio and look pretty good for prefab cabinets. The models that we have are the KD-SF-14. You can find them here...http://www.kkaudio.com/ The racks are actually made to roll around but I took the casters off so that they look more permanent. They still slide very easily on the carpet to be able to access the rear for hooking up.
Unfortunately, I don't have any good pictures of the sound booth to post that show everything.
