The remainder of the room would be untreated (full room treatment is not going to happen). The room would have some furniture.

Is this a pointless idea?
I record in a 9’ x 9’ room with hard wood floors but with a rug over the area where I record. I bought a freestanding hinged and foldable Gobo consisting of two 30” x 72” panels. I set the Gobo up as a shallow V and setup my mics within in the shallow V. I have a bare wall about 4’ behind me. This set up seems to work really well for what is admittedly a sub-optimal environment.

Here’s the latest recording I did with it and IMO it’s not bad considering what I have to work with.

Doerr Trinity 00 (Lutz/Maple)
Edwinson Zephyr 13 Fret 00 (Adi/Coco)
Emerald X-20 (all carbon fiber)
Eastman 810CE (Spruce/Maple archtop)
Froggy Bottom H-12 (Adi/EIR)
Rainsong APSE (all carbon fiber)
