Is an Auralex Gramma a good investment for gigging bass guitar or a gimmick? Glynn

I have one and like it. It is great for hard floors or berber carpets. It doesn't make an audible difference (to me) on higher pile carpets.

It makes a big difference on big, boomy, hollow stages. Any time you need to decouple the cabinet from the floor, it does a good job. It doesn't do much on higher pile carpets because the carpet does the same thing.

I got mine after playing on a very flexible dock. For the second show, I got the Gramma and all of a sudden I could hear the bass, which had been lost to the dock flexing with the sound.

These days I don't use it all that much.

I don't know what it costs, but it's probably cheaper to get a chunk of shag carpet to do the job, then you also have something to mop up beer spills!
