The Pipe Major of the Eton College Bagpipe Band is delighted with the ‘esprit de corps’ inspired by Black Cat Music’s recent installation of a sound isolating room at the world famous college.

When Eton’s Pipe Major visited the Black Cat Music stand at Music Education Expo last year, there was an opportunity to experience the acoustic environment achievable thanks to a complete MusicPracticeRooms.com room being installed at the show. The full-size trial proved sufficiently compelling to eliminate competing offers. “We recommend this solution for anyone wanting an acoustic room” said Karen James, Manager, Music Schools speaking on behalf of Eton College, adding, “We have been very pleased with the acoustic room for our bagpipe teaching.”

The Sound Isolating Rooms are designed to create an ideal rehearsal space with a climate controlled interior environment for the comfort of the band in which they can practice without their pipe and drum music causing disturbance to other classes in the college. The balanced acoustics within the room create a quality space also suitable for recording purposes. The modular design allows for a wide range of sizes to be constructed, from accommodating a solo singer to a choir or a band. And as needs and space allocations change, the sound isolating rooms can simply be re-located when required.

On a final note Karen said, “The installation went very well and was very swift, starting with a floor screed being laid to ensure everything was level and right through to final commissioning. Now we are all enjoying the benefits of the room, both the users of the room and those working around the Music Schools”.
