Hi

I retired just before the pandemic (Feb 2020) and in May of 2020 I starting rebuilding my rehearsal/music room (which had fallen into a state of disrepair). I finished the first phase, so it was usable again, in August of 2020.

However, since then I've gradually been enhancing it. This included getting the electrics sorted out last month, which also enabled me to finish the sound proofing and finally yesterday getting delivery of a Vibraphone. It's been a long standing ambition of mine to own one.

The room itself is a converted workshop at the bottom of my back garden.
Its about 14ft x 10ft.

Cheers


Simon

Great music room, Simon!

Thanks dogperson, I did post a picture somewhere else on the Forum last year, but that was before it was completed.

Hoping it'll inspire me to practise more. Certainly trying to master 4 mallets is already taking a lot of time!

Cheers
