Scottsdale is definitely a hub for new music in the U.S. There are many local bands that provide music every day of the week and many musical festivals are thrown here each and every year, making Scottsdale one of the most rock and roll cities. When you think of rock and roll you usually do not include carpeting into the thought, however it can effect the music industry.
One of the most important parts of starting a band is to find a place for the band to rehearse on a normal basis, which is a space that allows them to work on their sounds and volume in a private setting, and carpeting in studios can affect the sound immensely. Carpet is one of the best insulators for sound and external noise.
The market for sound proofing materials is huge, and many materials do a great job, but they are expensive and start up bands usually does not have the resources to purchase that type of equipment. Carpet is cheaper and the sound results are great, as they are even comparable to the expensive sound proofing materials on the market.
Carpeting is used in Scottsdale recording studios and also many other cities to help reduce unwanted sounds in the studio, control feedback and lessen the bad sounds for all types of recording, from vocals to all instruments. The carpet reduces any echo that may be happening in the studio that may happen to a room without insulation.
