Default Drum Baffles and Shields?

Hey y'all. I'm looking for a drum baffle/shield. (What's the proper term?) It doesn't need to be big or tall, but just to cover a small jazz kit on stage and in our practice room, just to avoid mic bleed through for some of the vocalists and so it doesn't overpower the other musicians and vocalists.

What are the available brands out there? I know of Clearsonic, but what else is there, and how cheap can I get them without sacrificing too much quality?

I was looking at something similar a while ago (decided it wasn't necessary in the end) And one of the more cheaper/innovative ideas I had thrown at me was to buy just the plexiglass panels from a local distributor. The quote I was given was way cheaper than the "specialized" drum ones, and could be built to my kits specifications. All you need is some hinges and you should be all set

The one they have at my church was built this way. Picked up the plexi at the hardware store. However, since I started playing they've stopped using it. It's easy to play quiet, I don't know why more people don't do it. I get asked to play louder allot, which really means something in a little church.
