what is the actual use of a drum shield? I always have looked at it as a way of protecting your stuff from guys wandering around absent mindedly...

Could always put it where it'll block the over amped guitar from damaging your ears.

The keep stage bleed to a minimum by blocking the drums' sound. You get a much cleaner vocal sound without drums in the vocal mics.

One of my bands uses a drum shield, its a whole different world. You put yourself in the box and then couple it with use of in ear monitors you become very disconnected. Its also hard to see more than a few feet outside of the plexi. Using one on a big stage would be a nightmare. There are some downsides, but the one upside is huge. I can play at a level that I'm comfortable with and not worry about blasting the band out. And since I'm a naturally heavy hitter it's made my life so much easier.
