    For starters, all 4 corners, floor to ceiling (I have bass traps over bookshelves.). 1st reflection points, cloud, back wall. From there, as needed to get a good audio response from the room.

    I bought all my panels 10-12 years ago at a cost of about $200usd. Fabric was super cheap thin polyester from the clearance bin at walmart. Spray adhesive to attach fabric to panels. No wood frames. I own my house so I can put nails in the wall which I did to hang the panels.

    Here's a thread on what I did.... Search/browse through the Studio Build section to see what others have done. Most are way better than mine.

    Thanks
    Thats the kind of thing I was thinking. If you can stack 2 to reach the ceiling good, if not try just placing them on the floor in the corners.

    Don't forget acoustic isolation for your amps, especially your bass amp. I put an Auralex GRAMMA v2 under my Fender Rumble 200 combo. My studio is in a bedroom-sized loft on the top floor (I have 4 half-floors built into a hill). There's an open stairwell all the way down. Decoupling my bass amp with the mid-size GRAMMA cleaned up the low end noticeably.

    My little Vox and Ampeg practice combos are still on the floor.

    This is expensiv-ish but would this at least tame the early reflections?

    Like they say in the description - these are good for first reflection points, flutter, etc. Not for full-frequency trapping. You need at least 100mm thick panels for that. You can make them yourself.

    mjbphotos, honestly mate, I cant build anything, don't have a saw and have no idea how to put wood together.

    I'm thinking of just bunging these in the room as an improvement at least.

    Your link wouldn't work for me. You don't even need to make a wood frame if you get OC703 or 705- just wrap some cloth around it and use spray-on cloth adhesive to stick it together on the back side. Then drive a couple of long finish nails in the wall, and 'impale' the panel on them.

    OC703 and 705 doesn't appear to be available here in the uk.
    If you right click the link and open in new tab it will work.

    Just look for mineral wool boards with a density >35 kg/m3. Buy 10 cm boards and set them up against the wall. You can cover them with fabric to you liking, but it's not necessary. And you can lean them into the wall, so no nails or holes and plugs needed.

    Don't do this with glassfiber boards, or you won't stop scratching!

    Do a google for "rockwool boards in the UK" - plenty of listings for you to search through.
