Types of Acoustical Shells:

Alla Breve Acoustical Shells

Theaters, performing arts centers, gyms, and auditoriums can lose a sufficient amount of sound in the room due to poor acoustics. This can provide challenging conditions for musical presentations, as performers cannot hear themselves very well, and also the audience cannot clearly hear the performance. 

Our Alla Breve music shells reflect the maximum range of audible frequencies. Improve sound for both performers and audience with better blend, mix, and projection. Performers can hear themselves better, improving intonation and tone, while the audience can enjoy the performance more clearly with improved acoustics.

Opus II Portable Orchestra Shells

The Opus II concert shells system brings the elegance of a concert hall to a multipurpose stage to create a beautiful, acoustical performance space. Opus II Portable Orchestra Shells Systems can be designed to “fly away” into the fly loft, or easily roll off stage.

  • Choose from over 300 colors and wood grains
  • Concert-hall appearance is enhanced by the fastener-free surface and minimal joints
  • Revolutionary construction and patent-pending tower transport makes setup fast and safe
  • Storage is compact, and most systems store in the space of a grand piano.

When looking for acoustical shells, we recommend considering these important factors:

  • Designed to last
  • Rolls easily and quickly
  • Reflects the maximum range of audible frequencies 
  • Adjustable to fit any performance or space 
  • Saving time and space

Important Factors:

Designed to last: Durable, laminated music shell panels reflect a maximum range of audible frequencies. Panels are a 7/8″ thick laminate with a 3/4″ honeycomb core. The surface of our music shells is a warm beige plastic, and the steel frame adds strength and support. Plus, our impact-resistant ABS plastic skin on rigid panels reduces maintenance.

Rolls easily and quickly: Save time as this music shell rolls easily to and from same-level storage area with twin casters. Only one person is needed to roll the music shell in its storage position. This saves labor and does not make set-up reliant on the custodial staff. If the music shell must be lifted, its 256 lb. weight can be more easily managed than the older styles weighing 375+ lb. 

Reflects the maximum range of audible frequencies: Improve sound for both performers and audience with better blend, mix, and projection. Performers can hear themselves better, improving intonation and tone, while the audience can enjoy the performance more clearly with improved acoustics

Adjustable to fit any performance or space: Our product’s telescoping height adjustment feature lets you enjoy improved sound in any room at any height from 8’4″ to 13’4.5″ with our top-quality music shells. Reduce labor with this music shell, which measures 6′ 7.5″ tall in the storage position and will pass through standard doorways. 

Saving time and space: It only takes one person to set up and take down our music shells. Our product features a counterweighted pulley system that allows the shell to glide into performance position with a minimal 15 lb. lift effort. Also, our music shells nest compactly in storage. For instance, Six nested music shells occupy less than 39 square feet.
