Default Which portable vocal booth?

I'm going to be investing in a portable vocal booth both for recording vocals and to help with recording Acoustic Guitar. As i will be using 2 mics for recording acoustic Guitar, i am going to need a booth wide enough for a stereo bar to fit in there. I was looking at this one http://www.dv247.com/microphones/se-...l-booth--31474 This looks as if it would do the job nicely. But i also found this. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Acoustic-Scree...item3efaebea72 This also looks like it would do the job just as good but for much less. Is there any good reason why this one is alot cheaper? Would i be better wit the SE, and why? Is there much difference? Thanks in advance.

The two products look similar but I believe the construction is very different.

The RvB5 is a metal frame screen lined with acoustic foam.

SE Electronics Reflexion is constructed from multiple layers of punched aluminium, wool, aluminium foil and aluminium foam.



What this actually means in terms of performance, I do not know. It does seem to suggest that the SE Reflexion Filter is a more complex product and understandably more expensive.

Can't say I've tried the other screen, but I do have and regularly use an SE Reflexion filter, can't recommend it highly enough!

Think i'll probably play it safe and go for the SE. The other one just seems too cheap for what you're getting, the screen, stand and stereo bar. It's tempting but there must be a difference in performance. Dave, have you/do you use the SE for recording with acoustic Guitar? If so, does it make a very noticable difference? I'm having some real problems getting a sound i like mic'ing up my acoustic, i've tried different mic placements but to no avail. I'm hoping that a reflexion filter will perhaps go some way to solving my problem.

I hope it works well for you. That device is something on my wish list but it has been a very expensive month. I am trying to record my vocals singing a classical song in an untreated room and have come up with the poor man's solution - an old clothes horse with a duvet folded over it, on top of a couple of boxes, on top of an armchair.

I can believe it. Might even have made it to production but I guess the marketing department figured it was not quite as tidy and photogenic as it might be

I heard it was copyright issues as they were using a Thomas The Tank Engine duvet.

Reflexion filter arrived today. Definitely an improvement.
