Red Cymbals 'Red' Baffles (Single) 55cm / 60cm / 65cm - Acrylic or LEXAN 5mm - 10mm
Red Baffles are made in the southeast of Melbourne - Australia. They are easy to mount on a standard yet sturdy cymbal stand (we can supply cymbal stands at an extra cost if needed).
The size that our baffles come in, as standard are: 55cm / 60cm / 65cm in diameter which is in the range of 22" / 24" / 26" however we can make other custom sizes. Acrylic Baffles are available in 5mm or 10mm and Lexan are available in 6mm or 8mm.
Cymbal / Drum baffles are an effective alternative to the dreaded 'drummer's cage'- the plexiglass/perspex drum screen which sucks the energy out of the room, ruins the vibe and is hated by most drummers.
Instead, these baffles can be positioned in front of louder instruments on a drum kit such as cymbals or a snare for refracting harsh frequencies (reducing bleed into mics on stage especially vocal mics) and are relatively invisible on the stage.
NB: Red Baffles refract sound and reduce stage noise but don’t make 'heavy hitting' loud drummers quieter - that is a completely different story! We can help with that - contact Dylan to arrange a consultation: firstname.lastname@example.org
WHY Choose Red Baffles?
They are made from high quality 5mm or 10mm acrylic or you can also get 6mm or 8mm LEXAN (depending on your choice). Our Baffles are far superior to the standard flimsy 3mm acrylic and can't be purchased at a regular hardware store. The thicker material provides a higher level of sound refraction and are more durable.
Benefits of Baffles:
*Transparent = relatively invisible on stage if cared for properly to avoid scratching
*Easily transportable or packed away in a padded cymbal bag such as our Red Deluxe Cymbal Bag and protected from marks with dividers.
*Simple to set up on a standard cymbal stand.
Each Red Baffle comes with:
1 cymbal felt
1 cymbal mount sleeve
*Cymbal stands to mount them can be organised at an additional cost.
Red Baffles are made in Australia. The baffles are constructed of cast acrylic (PMMA plastic) or LEXAN Polycarbonate in a range of thicknesses. Whether you choose Acrylic or LEXAN depends on your needs.
How do Acrylic and LEXAN differ?
Acrylic has an impact strength 17 times stronger than glass and whereas LEXAN is 250 times stronger than glass therefore LEXAN is stronger yet more flexible than Acrylic.
Why different thicknesses?
The thickness (mm = millimetres) of the baffles are personal preference however the thicker the material equates to the ability for the baffles to refract the sound waves and also the durability of the baffle. We don't make 3mm baffles as they are too thin and too prone to bending.
Acrylic (Celcius) -4 to 90 degrees
LEXAN (Celcius) -5 to 115 degrees

How many baffles?
We recommend using a minimum of 3-4 baffles for a standard drum set up (4-5 piece kit and hi-hats/2 crashes/ride)
They ship with a removable covering/film which can be peeled off prior to use.
How to clean?
Wipe any finger prints off gently with a microfiber cloth and soapy water. DO NOT USE WINDEX or other chemical based cleaners as they may cause the acrylic to cloud or lose their transparency.
Can we customise the size or do a colour other than clear?
Absolutely (14" 28") - email us and let's talk: email@example.com

We suggest allowing 7-10 business days for manufacture and shipping of your baffles (allowing for public holidays etc..) HOWEVER we will always work hard to get them to you sooner.
