The Haven Acoustic Shield

The Woolly Shepherd has worked closely with leading musicians and conductors to design, develop and manufacture this range of highly effective acoustic shields, using our unique combination of natural fibres. These acoustic shields provide much needed protection for musicians playing in concert bands and/or orchestras who are regularly exposed to extended periods of high decibel playing from the musicians directly around them.


“The Haven has changed my playing life in the studio and I know that my colleagues that use them are really happy with them”

Hearing loss for professional musicians has long been a problem due to prolonged exposure to loud music, whether it’s rock and roll or classical. This is particularly an issue for younger players and those who teach them, who are now becoming aware of the potential dangers of close proximity of instruments.



The Haven Acoustic Shield sits behind the head of a musician playing in an orchestra or concert/brass band set up. The shield reduces decibel exposure from musicians seated immediately behind them and as a result of the absorptive properties of the shield, the musician playing into them is not exposed to reflected sound waves.
