Today’s post features percussion drum shields. We are all familiar with the well documented antics of drummers. But no one can afford to over look the percussionist just because he doesn’t sit down for the whole show. Percussionists with all their potential for over the top cowbell use should also be kept tightly within a drum shield for everyone’s safety and comfort. Help is on the way thanks to Clear Sonic:
Percussion Drum Shield
So here’s the basic everyday shield. Unless you have a very rowdy percussionist this will do perfectly for you. But it could be better. Anyone know what this shield is missing that we could easily add to give all the musicians a little more peace of mind?
That’s right 360 degree enclosure. You dont’ want him getting bored and just walking out to the front of the stage. That could be disastrous. But what if you’ve got a completely tame/house broken percussionist. Say he started as a bassist and is filling in for instance and never actually was a drummer. Well here’s a light weight version you can use that should suffice for anyone playing percussion with non-drummer roots.
You probably don’t need to be warned again about the danger but just to make sure everyone is on the same page:
Also note they were foolish enough to not use a drum shield on the percussionist or the drummer. No surprise someone tried stealig their show.
