DEFECTIVE HINDGES

By hairbear

from Northwest Florida

Comments about Control Acoustics VDS3X3 Half Stack Sound Barrier Shield:

I read the reviews and saw some negatives about panels received. But thought it was from shipping. I ordered and received the panels and guess what???? The hinges are already coming apart, as if dry rotted. I replaced windshield wiper blades recently and it looks just like the wiper blades. Part of the "H" outer section, has come apart from the main body and now will not hold the panel. I couldn't believe it. Musicians Friend was NO help. Just return and get a refund in a couple of weeks. WHATTTTTTTTT. Couldn't they just send replacement hinges, either from MF or from Control Acoustics. Whats up with quality and quality control at Control Acoustics. If I were part of this company, someone would be let go. ONE STAR, because I have to leave something.

      Comments about Control Acoustics VDS3X3 Half Stack Sound Barrier Shield:

      I usually use two marshall half stacks when performing with my band because I play in stereo for a fuller sound. The Marshall 1960 cabs tend to focus their sound like a laser beam and can be annoying to audience members in its path. These shields are perfect for blocking those piercing sound waves.
      I did modify them by applying a strip of gaffers tape across the bottom of each panel so that the bottom edge of each panel is protected from stage vibrations and any rough surface they may come in contact with. I saved the shipping box and reinforced it and laminated the corners for longevity until I can find a proper container to safely transport the panels to each gig without scratching them as they ride in the back of the band truck. I have needed these panels for a few years and glad I finally got them.

            I use this as a half-shield to mute our drummer. Really takes a few db off the snare and toms to lower stage volume. And prevents the drum mics from picking up the guitars and bass.

                  The construction is fairly good, the panels themselves are quality and it can be maneuvered in many configurations. By my experience, different positions have different results. Great for a buffer on a cranked amp, mutes some of the harshness.

                    We use these shields in a church setting. It gives our sound booth more control of the overall sound and prevents the congregation in the first two rows from being blasted. They direct the sound straight to you and that helps lower your overall volume.
