ECO200 Rehearsal and Music production. Vitoria. Spain.
Mike Baldwin. Musician.
I am a process engineer by profession, and after a longbreak, also a late-blooming apprentice jazz saxophonist. I also play funk and rock, using a wide paint-stripping mouthpiece.
My day job plus family commitments mean that I generally practice from 10pm onwards. Previous to installation of my ECO200 booth, I used to have to play at a low volume, halfway inside a wardrobe in the garage in order to avoid waking my family or annoying the neighbours, hardly the best way to play. I considered all manufacturers (also designing and building it myself, but I did not have a month of Sundays to do it), and finally chose Demvox on quality, price and short delivery time.
Having the booth is wonderful, I can play at full volume at night and not annoy anyone but myself! I can develop my tone and practice difficult stuff, knowing that no-one can hear me, and therefore avoiding evaluation apprehension.
