sound blankets berlin

Recommended Posts

anyone know where to score proper quilted sound blankets in berlin?  they're proving surprisingly elusive.  i've tried kortwich and a few g&l shops, so far no dice.

Kortwich not?

 

You can try calling Zeigermann in Hamburg or Ambient recording in Munich. That's both of course too far away, but maybe they know someone. German sound scene isn't that big.

You mean something like this? Not quilted and quite pricy, but available for pick up at the Berlin Moritzplatz store.

Sound blankets are basically thick moving and storage blanket pads. 

 

I would question any company that says it is making specifically sound isolating pads that look identical to a furniture moving pad in my storage unit.

$143 EURO from noyz boyz 

 

Maybe this blanket is a larger size?

$20.49 US from USCargoControl

 

But you could buy 10 of these for that price. 

 

I'm just sayin...

If you call a moving and storage company they will probably be glad to sell you some used or extra blankets they have stacked to the ceiling.

Plus shipping you‘ll have to quadruple that price at least, these things are heavy. Also, I can’t tell from your pictures if they are the same thickness. 

Back when I was looking for mine, I had not been able to source these blankets somewhere nearby. Those blankets Matthias linked to are all black, but having the white alternative is worth a lot.

You should be able to find moving blankets on almost every continent if you look to the correct industry for purchase.

Maybe not Antarctica.

I posted that link because the OP is in Toronto, according to his profile info. They have branches located in all major centres in Canada.

Yes, but he was specifically enquiring about Sound blankets in Berlin

How about a handful of (very lightweight) cotton sheets in white and grey (or light green or whatever) to stick over the cheap black blankets when required? Obviously an extra step to setting up but not a major one?

That might be possible, but in those situations where I‘m setting up the blankets at the last moment (which sometimes happens) every step would be a major step. 

 

I rarely have a chance to use more than two of these blankets.  So if you only had two that would cover a lot of situations and the high price of buying them (e.g.) at NoyzBoyz is less relevant. It’s not like you need to replace them once a year

👍🏼

I just ordered a few blankets at this shop. I asked if they could provide black and white blankets and Mr. Maafi of C&M Umzugslogistik promised to import a batch of b/w blankets. In about three months time they will be available!

 

So, tell everyone!
