Drum shield

Sparky72653

We are a small church that seats 175 people. We are looking for a bigger building. Currently we have on stage a 5 piece custom drum kit w cymbals, a lead electric guitar w a small amp that is micd, an electric rhythm n guitar player w small amp that is micd, a bass player, an electronic keyboard player and five vocals. We have two monitor mixes and four monitor speakers. Our kick drum is micd as well. Our sanctuary is nine foot ceilings rectangle 60' x 40' with block walls on the 40' ends and drywall on the 60' ends. Our 8 inch platform sits on the 60" long walls. We are looking to get a drum shield and reduce some noise. Any suggestions?

Yeah, talk to one of the great Sweetwater sales engineers :) There are a bunch of drum shields with ratings attached if you would like to scan through those. Drum shields are great for stages... just make sure that your drummer has ear protection since they bounce all of that SPL back at you. I use Hearos high fidelity plugs.
