Overview

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

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. I am sure it will be really useful also if you are trying to get some quality suppressed drum practice in your house if you live with other people.

Beyond the fact that these things act like a placebo - folks see it and think the drums are quieter, and that it makes the drummer rely on monitor volume to moderate their own volume, and often end up playing louder, our church purchased one of these screens, and the hinges between the panels started breaking within one month of use. GC would do nothing to alleviate the problem, so we purchased replacement hinges from another vendor for a good chunk of money, but the new hinges do not stay attached, and the shield falls apart and has to be reassembled with each use. Most GC merchandise is quality, but this thing makes me think it is Thanksgiving every week because it is such a big turkey. Just teach your drummer to play with sensitivity and dynamics and you can save the pricey aquarium for the fishes.

Generally, the shield does what it should, but one of the plastic hinges broke right out of the box.

    Comments about 5-piece Acrylic Drum Shield:

    The plexi-glass shields arrived in excellent condition. The are covered with a protective blue film that I did not remove until I had installed the system as a part of a complete drum enclosure. The plastic hinges are already in place and properly aligned so the unit can be folded properly. I could not be more pleased.

        This has been a god send to my band. A must for any heavy hitting drummer if your band wants to play at a reasonable level during practice. Plus you can string lights along it for some cool effects. I would buy this again if needed.

              Comments about Control Acoustics 5-piece Acrylic Drum Shield:

              I have an isolation booth for drums in the studio that is 12 X 14. I can use the acrylic set up for better control. A lot of drumers want to be out where the action is to take visual signals so then the shield comes out to the main room and by adding a few rear wall baffles it is almost as good as the booth. For a live sound it works very well for recording in the main room.
