Boom Box Post with RealTraps Starter Kit
Last year, RealTraps in New Milford, Conn., assisted the Women's Audio Mission with its fundraising effort to attend the 137th Audio Engineering Society Convention by donating a RealTraps Starter Kit to give away in a raffle.
The winner of the kit was Kate Finan, co-owner of Boom Box Postin Los Angeles. Finan recently wrote on her blog about her experience with supporting WAM as well as how her audio work has prgoressed since using the RealTraps Starter Kit.
"I was stoked that my donation had helped them to reach their goal, and felt good about being a part of a cause so dear to my heart," says Finan. "But I also received the added bonus of a stupendous surprise a few weeks later when I was notified that my name had been drawn to win a RealTraps acoustic treatment kit in the post-fundraising raffle.
"When I joined Boom Box Post in January, I was able to put that kit to good use. On the recommendation of Noelle Duncan, WAM's Development and Communications Associate, I called RealTraps and spoke to an incredibly helpful employee about how best to install them in my unique sound editorial room at BBP. I can honestly say that I have never spoken to someone who was so genuinely interested in helping me to use their product in the optimal way. I also visited their website and made good use of the extensive installation advice and diagrams before deciding on an arrangement and hanging them.
"Now, my editorial suite not only sounds better, but it looks amazing as well. So, I would like to say a huge thank you to both WAM and RealTraps!"
Since then, Boom Box Post has expanded, adding a new edit suite, and Finan placed an order for more traps to make the new room up to their high standards. She adds that future expansion is also planned, telling RealTraps, "We'll certainly be buying more as we continue to outfit more sound editorial rooms."
