After reading all the reviews on this product, I was a little skeptical about buying it. I'm glad that I did. I don't know what the problem these other clowns had putting it together, but I had this thing done in about thirty minutes. (45 if you count the time I wiped it down with windex!)I'm guessing these other jokers couldn't put a drum head on a drum, nevermind putting this thing together! And yes, it does work. The whole purpose of a drum shield is to help isolate the drums & the drum mics, and to also help so that the vocal mics don't pick up the drums. If you think that this is going to muffle the drums, your mistaken. Yes, it does cut down on the overall volume of the drums, but like I said, the purpose is to ISLOATE the drums from mics! I'm a professional drummer, playing larger clubs and small halls. The is a dream come true for my sound guy. I get such a great sound now from my kit. And, if you go to Drum One's website, you can get a carrying case for this. Get this. You will not be disappointed!

This has got to be one of the worst designs I have ever seen. Here's how it's supposed to be assembled. First, you have to peel the paper off of the plexiglass panels. Not so bad. Then you have to somehow fit the edges of these panels into a plastic hinge that has friction teeth to keep the hinges attached to the panels. Only problem is it's nearly impossible to get the hinges on because it's such a tight fit. Myself and a friend tried to do this by sliding it on from one end and we tried just pushing it on. We even used a hammer and a heat gun. And when we finally got a hinge on one panel, it was twice as hard putting the other panel on that hinge. They would have been better off drilling holes and providing metal hinges that screw on or can be riveted on. I was very dissatisfied with this product.

Reflective material just makes it bad for the drummer's ears. Craftsmanship on these panels is bad. Don't waste your money on this. Instead, buy compressed fiberglass (Owens Corning 705)- they come in 2'x4' panels of 6. Use masonite boards to support them, and cover them in acoustic fabric. All of this can be done DIY. Just google acoustimac. You'll have panels that will make your practice space sound good and then will please your stagemates.
I'm a little surprised that it was so easy to put together after reading some of the reviews. We are in a church and so it will stay right where it is, no tearing down and putting up again. I'm completely satisfied for what we paid for it. Maybe there are better shields out there, but this fit our budget better and works for us.
yes, it works fairly well, not great, but it does the job if you can acoustically dampen the area of the room.
I recently ordered and ATTEMPTED to put together the drum shield. Much to my dismay, it would have been easier to build my own than assemble this one! Is there some trick to getting this thing together that we don't know? It's not that our band a bunch of idiots, considering we consist of a doctor, and a mechanical tech. We got this for touring purposes, so my question is....will this take an hour to put together Everytime!
This is the honest truth, i've used it for 1 1/2 years, yes it works as far as making it quiter BUT! it is VERY VERY unstable, its very rocky and hard to move if your alone due to the fact there is no legs to keep it from turning over on the other side. Advice: Save Money and buy a professional shield.
This product has little value for its cost. It was a pain to put together, and doesn't even break enough sound for the money.
This shield was bought to keep some of the drum noise out of the vocal mics. I was totally against it at first (how dare you try to quiet the drums?!) but is has grown on me. As far as assembly, I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. I had mine together in about 20 minutes. I didn't know there were so many whining drummers out there. It is kinda cool being in your own little space and the general opinion is that the overall sound is better, although it's a little harder for me to hear everything else. They call me "the boy in the plastic bubble." If there is a drawback, it's that I have to look at 5 reflections of myself looking back at me!!!!!!
After reading the other reviews was very hesitant about buying this product, but went ahead because of the price and availability even though money was no object I figured I would give them a try and if they did not work I would not lose much. Boy was I glad I did. These guys must not have any mechanical skills because it was easy to assemble and works great....try using your db meter to make a final judgement to see how well they work...I have been playing for almost 42 years and have never seen a product so misquoted. Sorry guys, but I had them assembled in less than 30 minutes and they work great and look great.
We are using this shield in our church, and as far as sound suppression is concerned, it works very well! However, the setup and tear down is very difficult with these hinges. We hammered them on and fold them up when we need to transport, but sometimes they come apart again. Can be pretty frustrating. If you don't move much, they're awesome!
bought one a few weeks back, and i personally think it kinda sucks. as for muffling the sound, yeah, kinda, but more than anything it just reflects back at you. it's nothing to write hom about. i gave up on trying to make it stand on its own for longer than ten minutes and started using it as a partition between my kit and random gear.
It was a bit of a struggle but we did get the unit together. Good thing we don't plan to move it much, though. Unfortunately, we soon discovered that we had only succeeded in trading a loud drum kit for an even worse sounding loud & roomy drum kit. We did finally bring the drums under control after adding absorption baffles on either side of and behind the drums. Now we have to figure out how to get the drum sound out of the choir mics.
It's awesome cuts out more than half the sound!I use it everywhere. It takes a little time to build, but it's easy!
I recently purchased this shield even after reading the reviews. I put this thing together, (which was not very hard, 40 minutes) set it up and wow, what a difference! The drum mics actually were able to do what they were designed to do. We are in a room approx. 100'X 70' and the noise reduction this shield provided really did enhance our overall sound. I would recommend this product with no hesitation.
Got the drum one drum shield for the church to cut down on the punch and volume from the drum kit. We meet in a mediaum hall even with an expert drummer with light touch the drums were overbearing. This went along way to cut the volume down. We are able to turn down all the other instruments to a nice level mix. I was concerned about puting it together after reading about other's difficulties and I did have a hard time with it. The instructions say to warm up the hinges with a hair drier to make them more pliable. I did this and still had a hard time, I think it would have been impossible except I shaved off one of the retention ribs from the inside of all the hinges to get them started on the panel. I would buy it again. This is the least expensive I've found this item.
This product was virtually impossible to assemble. I finally had to go out and buy my own hinges. The plastic hinges they give you are garbage, the instructions are worse and you pretty much need a football field to put them together. I would NEVER buy this unit again.
Do not buy, the setup of this product is immmposble and once se up it doesn't even work. On toop of that i recieved numerous cuts on my hands and arms from the sides of the product. SAVE UR MONEY
I saw a drummer in Las Vegas over 20 years ago with a shield and thought it would be great. I mentioned it to my bass player back then and he thought it was stupid. Well years later we're playing a really small club and ny cymbals were right in his ears.....2 weeks later I have the shield.We get a better mix with it and the stage volume is so much nicer. I should have got one 20 years ago
I use two of these on stage for our church services. They really perform pretty well. I'm not sure I would recommend setting up and tearing them down regularly or say they're road worthy. The spines that connect the panels together are tempermental. This causes the unit to not hold up well. But despite this shortcoming, they work pretty well if you let them stay where they are when you set them up.
Well I won't insert my name but lets just say out of the 52 wks of the year I'm on the road about 35-40 of them on tour, this product just makes common sense, I will agree it does add to the noise on drummers ears, but thats why there's a company out there that makes noise cancelling in ear monitors and they work great together. The sound of the overall stage w/ each drum mic'd and not seeping into stage mics makes for the perfect balance through your crowd monitors...there's a reason why these things have been around for years...
I play 3 times a week in a venue where this particular drum shield is carried out of a closet and set up on stage. I can say, in all honesty, that this drum shield has fallen apart EVERY time it's been set up. It has happened so many times that it's become a running joke on our setup / teardown crew. It's hinges are WORTHLESS, and have caused stress on so many occasions. Don't buy it. Demand better products for your money. And a note to the manufacturers: Why not make hinges that are riveted to the panels? WHY? WHY, OH WHY!!??!?! Arrrggghhh!
