Jazzlab are best known for creating innovative products such as the SAXHOLDER, SAXSILENCER and the DEFLECTOR to aid musicians at home and in a live setting.
The DEFLECTOR-PRO is a new 2019 model which takes its inspiration from the 2016 original design but now has a greater reach in terms of musicians who can benefit. It is, in essence, an acoustic shield that quickly and securely clips onto the bell of all baritone, tenor, alto and curved soprano saxophones and now trumpet, straight soprano saxophones and trombones as well.
The shield is angled towards the player so the sound can be redirected towards your ears. This helps you work on your sound and articulation when practising at home even at lower volumes and for better audibility when playing live, as it can be difficult to hear clearly at a gig. The angle can also be adjusted easily for different heights of player and to affect how much of the sound is deflected towards you. This also allows you to practice quieter.
There is a small hole in the shield to allow for sound to be carried towards the audience, so it does not mute your instrument. It can be neatly transported in a case or gig bag and is supplied in its own velour carry pouch.
