Marantz Professional’s Sound Shield Compact is a professional vocal reflection filter that excels in the studio or out in the field.
Recording on the road shouldn’t mean you have to sound like you’re giving dispatches from a cave. This recording baffle uses high-density acoustic foam to prevent echoes and reduce ambient noise to a minimum, resulting in a cleaner recording even under undesirable conditions. Two folding metal panels provide great durability, but at 4 lbs and less than 6 inches wide when folded, it’s easy to pack up and travel with you.
Designed for microphone-stand mounting, the Sound Shield Compact features a wide adjustment range to accommodate any size microphone, so you don’t get stuck working under your blankets or sounding less than your best again.
