DIY sound booth Cabina insonorizada LightSpeed Spanish

In this brief video we see Gordon taking and talking us through the steps of making his DIY sound booth which in Spanish is called una cabina insonorizada.

For anyone thinking of making a DIY sound booth, then just know that the end result, which would cost between 7 and 10 thousand euros to buy, cost 1000 euros to make. A real bargain.

However, it took 3 weeks to create and probably more than 60 man hours.
