- Reduces sound of cymbals from spilling into drum mics
- Light weight design fits most popular microphones
- Allows drum mic to be articulated for precise aiming
- Improves isolation for added control over each drum
The CrashGuard is a unique sound-shielding device that isolates the
drum microphone to attenuate the sound of cymbals during the recording
process. This has the net effect of reducing interference between the
two sources thus enabling greater control over the sound of the drum.
Compact and light weight, the CrashGuard is designed to fit most
popular drum microphones and mounts directly on the boom stand using
the microphone's clip to hold it in place. The high impact ABS
construction is tough enough to withstand the hit of a drum stick by
even the most aggressive drummer.
To ensure the microphone performance is maintained, the under-belly
is fully coated on the inside with high density open-cell foam to
absorb internal reflections and reduce phase cancellation. Plus the
innovative design features an extended cable cutout that allows the
microphone to be articulated for precise placement, further optimizing
Once in place, the CrashGuard surrounds the microphone with a sonic
barrier. By reducing the spill from the cymbals, more of the drum can
be captured. This enables the engineer to add EQ to the drum such as
increasing high end for more attack without accentuating the sound of
the cymbal. On close proximity sources such as the high-hat and snare,
the engineer enjoys greater balance over each sound.
The CrashGuard is an easy to use instrument shield designed to
control the spill of cymbals entering the drum for greater control
during the recording process.
