Can I buy a gobo anywhere? Or how do I make one?

    Just wondering if there's a commercially built (good quality) gobo out there that I can buy. I don't have any tools but have access to some, plus there's a home depot down the street.

    I need it for drums/sax. I also need one for the upright bass. I record Jazz in my living room and just want to have a little more control over the sound for a better mixing experience. I do like the bleed but when drums or sax start to really hit it can be tough to mix.

    what size are you looking for, and what thickness/structure/sound stopping ability do you seek?

    I need one for a small jazz drumset. About 6' high x 4' wide. I would need 2 of them to cover the front of the kit. It would have to have plexiglass for visual cues.
    The bass gobo needs to be 4' and enough to wrap around the bass.
    How are those plastic shields it I put foam or blankets on the bottom half of them?
