Auralex ships the HoverMat Isolation Platform 10/08/12
Auralex is now shipping its new HoverMat Isolation Platform. Auralex tells us that, like their HoverDeck, the HoverMat isolates a drum set from the floor or a hollow stage, reducing coloration from floor resonance by decoupling the drum kit, thereby resulting in a tighter, more pure sound for both studio and live applications. The HoverMat differs from the HoverDeck by offering a solution that is more portable, lighter and easier to set up & tear down (it simply rolls up) and at a lower price point than the popular HoverDeck. The HoverMat takes up less cubic space than a similarly-sized HoverDeck setup.
The HoverMat comes as a 4'x6' section of Auralex's sound-deadening SheetBlok sound barrier material, covered with charcoal gray Ozite-type, commercial-grade, road-ready carpet, and the company says that it is ideal for musicians on the go, worship groups, live performance venues, or anywhere a drum kit needs additional isolation.
