The CrashGuard is a unique sound-shielding device that prevents bleed from cymbals and other sounds from entering the drum microphone. Once in place, the CrashGuard surrounds the microphone with a sonic barrier. By reducing the spill from the cymbals, more of the drum sound can be captured. This makes it easier for the engineer to add EQ or increase level without accentuating the sound of the cymbal.
Compact and lightweight, the CrashGuard is designed to fit most standard microphones and mounts easily to the boom stand using the microphone’s clip to hold it in place.
Constructed from high impact ABS, the CrashGuard is tough enough to withstand the hit of a drumstick by even the most aggressive drummer, making them not only ideal for acoustic isolation but also for microphone protection! To ensure that microphone performance is maintained, the under-belly is fully covered with high-density open cell foam to absorb internal reflections and reduce phase cancellation. The innovative design also features an extended cable cutout that allows the microphone to be articulated for precise placement, further optimizing the performance.
- When used for snare drum the CrashGuard attenuates sound from the high-hat allowing for better isolation and EQ for the snare mic.
- CrashGuard attenuates the sound from the crash and ride cymbals reducing bleed on the floor tom mics.
- Percussion instruments cut through the din on stage and bleed into other percussion mics. Crashguard allows greater seperation between mics.
- 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
