The trumpet is possibly right up there with drums as the instrument that will send your neighbors packing. Kiku tells us why a VocalBooth was the best solution for her to rehearse with her trumpet—yes, you read it correctly TRUMPET.
“I get to try things that are not good yet, and not worry about people hearing and thinking, “wait, she plays for a living?”, because if I were to practice what I am good at, it would be a private performance for my pets and daughter. I need to crack more into stuff that sounds awful and now I can do it without wondering who is listening in! I’m also planning on doing some recording in my VocalBooth. I spent way too much time in a studios last year making my album, I’d like to do most of it at home—and now I can!”
Kiku wakes herself up with reveille in a serious no frills 4’ x 6’ Gold Series VocalBooth in our standard executive gray exterior and interior.
