Hello, this is Mr.I of Shizuka Co., Ltd..
In this article, I would like to introduce a comment from our customer who used our acoustic panel “SHIZUKA Stillness Panel“. I will post it in two parts, this is the first half part.

I am doing a band (guitar) as a hobby, and when I practice at the rehearsal studio I bring my own guitar amp.
In practice, we often sound the metronome. However, there were the following problems.
● The sound of your guitar often causes the sound of the metronome to be drowned
● Vocal is difficult to hear
● The sound of each part such as a drum or bass is not clearly heard
And apparently it seemed to be in my guitar amp. Despite the fact that the volume has already narrowed down considerably, it was in a situation in which it was being drowned.
One day when I used a closed back amplifier of a studio for a while, it turned out that each instrument sounds very clear. It seems that not only myself but also drums and bases have similar impressions. What on earth is different? So I tried to compare my amp and its amp. As a result, I noticed that the structure of the amplifier is the most different whether the rear face is open or not.
So I thought “The sound that is ringing from behind has turned around, so each sound must be heard hardly.” If that is the case, it may be resolved by absorbing the sound coming out from behind. Then I began to examine sound absorbing materials.
After examining various things on the net, we arrived at your product.
I placed a panel and performed a band performance, the clear difference was found out.
First of all I realized that I could hear vocals well as myself. I am concurrently playing guitar and vocal, but I felt it very easy to sing. And I heard impressions on drums and bass. The common feeling of the two people was that the sound of the metronome and himself was heard very clearly. More than me, it seems that the drum and base people were aware of the difference. After all it was caused by the sound of my guitar turning.
