ok, i have used this at my high school in our rehearsal area in practice rooms, it really helps because when learning new things, its hard to gently tap on the drums, you've got to hit em. on stage we put it between the drums and piano so the drums wouldn't be picked up by the piano mic. i would suggest getting the bag because it does get scratched from moving it and from bus floors. it will also keep the dust off so you won't have to clean it all the time. it is very effective for pit orchestra situations and assembly was a breeze, i don't really know what other people had for problem i just slid them in, it is quite heavy but for all it does, its worth it so if you want to isolate your drums at home or in concert, this is the way to go.
So this works great as intended...isolate the drummer for various reasons. The assembly leaves something to be desired. The hinge design is poor. Assembly requires at least 2 people, 3 would be even better. Frustration during assembly is guarenteed to be off the charts. The hinges are extremely tight, especially on the 3/8" end panels. While the manufacturer recommends using a little rubbing alcohol to assist in getting the hinges onto the panels, this wasn't very effective. I finally resorted to using a blow dryer to loosen the hinge...this did seem to help a bit. IMO, I would do a bit of homework and check for a better hinge/panel arrangement
i use this at the church i play drums for and it keeps all the sound in without bouncing it around, it also keeps all the sound out which allows the mics to get all they need to put out great sound.
Basic drum shield - good size and quality.As most of the reviews point out, this shield requires assembly. I was able to assemble it by myself in about 30 minutes with two tools: A small rectangular piece of hardwood approximately 1.5"x.75"x12" and a rubber mallet. When you begin applying the hinge, simply push one end of the channel down onto the panel to get it started, then lay the thin (3/4") edge of the wood piece on top of the hinge channel and carefully but firmly tap the wood to push the hinge down onto the panel, working your way along the entire length. After the hinge is applied to one panel, lay the next panel down next to it and line up the top and bottom, then fold the hinge over so that it can be tapped down onto the new piece in the same manner. Repeat the process for the four hinges and you're done! NOTE: The instructions are quite lacking! One important item that it doesn't mention is to make certain that you apply the hinges in an alternating orientation so that you can fold the panels like an accordion for travel and storage! /////
This thing takes forever to put together with a lot of people working at it. There isn't a good way to put this together. If you worked a few hours at it and carefully put it in place without it falling apart and never bumped into it again then it might be okay. If you ever plan on moving it then don't buy it. Spend the money on something else. It had been up about a month and the drummer bumped it while walking around it and a panel hit the ground then it fell apart. Took a good hour to get it together with 6 people working at it. It took everybody three hours the first time to put it together. One person couldn't put it together alone.
You would thing that for the cost of this shield that there would be some sort of company information. While the panels and hinges appear to be very high quality, the actual assembly of the shield is nearly impossible. I'm about ready to duct tape the thing together. IMO, if you're looking for a drum shield, avoid any Cal-Mil shields.
I set this thing up all the time at my church every sunday! It is really heavy! Setting it up around a drumset is so simple. All you do is fold it when you put it away then drag it to the drumset unfold one panel then keep unfolding CIRCLING the drumset so it is balanced with itself. This people who say it hard to set up must be setting it up like a straight wall(STUPID) or trying to set it up around a 16 PIECE Kit! This takes me less than a minute to drag out and setup around a 4 piece kit. Even if it was a 8 piece kit. Still No problem. The semi holes in the bottom, really help so you could run XLRs from drum mics out to a snake or mixer. This thing really helps to cover up the drums in the church so we can EQ it how we want it in the back at the mixer.
