How to build the perfect space for trumpet playing

When trying out new instruments or mouthpieces, it is often challenging to find the right environment in which to do so.

You may have had that experience of being shoved into a completely dead-sounding, glorified broom cupboard in a music shop. Or left just to play in the middle of the store, trying not to bother the other customers too much. And even if you do have a room with a comfortable and honest acoustic, you are only ever hearing the reflected sound rather than what it actually sounds like from the audience.

K.O. from Stomvi USA talks in this video about the challenge of setting up their new testing space, and the amount of analysis, work and thought that has had to go into it… Even down to the selection of the right microphones and recording gear so that players can listen back to a really honest account of how they sound.
