Drum Shield Collection
Here is a quick overview of some of our most important Drum Shield write-ups. Whether you are needing one to curb Drum Volume, or you have a showy drummer that needs to be hidden, or an easily distracted drummer that you need to keep focused, one of these drum shields will be right for you. You can’t just leave a drummer on stage with musicians and expect everything to go smoothly. You need an enclosed space, a Drum Cage if you will, to corral him (or her of course) so that the audience focus is on the band leader and only on the band leader. Drummers should be heard and not seen (and not heard too loud).
If you are just getting started in the on stage security field looking for your first drum shield then the Cheap Drum Shield is probably going to peak your interest. It’s a look at a quick and dirty DIY Drum Shield project for controlling drummers and drum volume.
If your main goal is to make it so that people don’t even know you have a drummer then the Drum Condo Drum Shield is really the only option. It’s built so extremely and seamlessly that unless you already know there is a drummer and where to find him you would find it near impossible to locate him.
Non Drummer Drum Shields
Huh? What could you use it for if not a drummer? Well how about a percussionist? Percussion Drum Shield. Even a percussionist can distract from the lead singer. Or in otherwise need caging.
But really you shouldn’t even limit yourself to the rhythm section. We’ve all seen that saxophonist prancing around trying to steal the spot light. Nip it in the bud. Put that guy in a cage. Jazz flute, put them behind glass. Over-souling backup singer, put them behind glass. Guy who snuck a tambourine on stage, put him in behind glass. Really anyone who might be onstage and not one of the important frontman/showman type can be put behind glass with the Microphone Shield. Yeah it’s a bit extreme…extreme brilliance.
And this is just a small sampling of the implementations of a Drum Shield. We won’t go into all the reasons for “Why is the drummer in a cage?” Just too many to list and too obvious.
