Isolates the sound of your drum kit.

This 5-Piece Acrylic Drum Shield can be placed in front of your kit to isolate the sound of your drums during a recording session, or it can allow you to lower your band's overall stage volume by reducing the amount of drum sound in the stage mix. It can also be placed behind the drum kit to reflect more sound toward the audience in outdoor venues. Each panel features a mousehole at its base, so it's easy to run cables for mics or e-drums through the shield.

The five 5-1/2' x 2' panels require no assembly and fit together with flexible hinges, making setup and tear down simple.

Each hinge runs the entire length of the connection, providing better sound dampening than ever before, as well as increased stability and safety.

Features

  • Includes five 5-1/2' x 2' panels
  • Four full-length, flexible hinges
  • Mouseholes for cables

          Comments about Control Acoustics 5-piece Acrylic Drum Shield:

          These drum shields really help keep the volume under control and free up the drummer to play as they want. They are well built and should last a long time. If you want to really control the sound you may want to go to a full enclosure, but in most settings this will do.

              To start ,the drum shield started to come apart on set up.Also, if you think you can set this up by yourself .Think again! It was obviously made for an "in place " setting i.e a pit or a church,not a working band. I sent it back . No problems from MF.They are great. Drum shield .Not to much.

                    This shield does make a difference in the sound for our new church drum set. One of the five panels and one of the connectors arrived damaged. After talking to a Musician's Friend representative, it looks like replacements for the damaged parts are on the way. The shield looks nice and functions well. The best part is getting to keep our drummer in a bubble.

                              A very good drum shield for the price. The mouse holes work great for mic and monitor cables. We setup and take down the shield every week for House of Worship use. After 6 months of setup and tear down 4 times / month, one of the 4 rubber sleeves started to tear at both the top and bottom.

                              My desire was to merely purchase a replacement sleeve, but because it was under warranty, Musicians Friend swapped our shield for a new one.
