Creating reverb acoustically through a reverb chamber

Room tracks aren't the only way real rooms contribute reverberation to our studio recordings, we can also use a reverb Chamber. Recall from Sabine's Equation for reverb time that the Reverb Time increases as the cubic volume, the three-dimensional size of the room is increased. But this doesn't mean that a small volume can't reverberate. Small spaces can still offer long reverb times as long as they have little to no sound absorption. Small sound reflective spaces dedicated to the purpose of creating reverberation are called reverb Chambers.

The focus on sound reflectivity narrows our options. Most residential construction is sheetrock, which isn't a full bandwidth reflector. That is sheetrock doesn't reflect all frequencies evenly, but concrete, stone, tile, these are reflective materials begging to make some reverb. This suggests we should consider bathrooms and basements, maybe a garage, or even the kitchen as potentially valid spaces for creating a reverb Cha...
