    I don't think you can find a PVC pipe large enough to use as a vocal booth. I think you would need at least a 3 to 4 foot diameter and I don't think I've ever seen it any larger than about 5 or 6 inches.

    You can get PVC pipe in the plumbing section any home center, e.g. Home Depot, Lowe's, Menards (don't know if they're in Texas).

    They are REALLY cheap - the fittings are what cost the bucks.

    10 foot 2" tube is about $5 - each fitting is $2-4. How much it will cost depends on the design.
    They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. -B.F.
