I can’t stand metal, scream metal, death metal, rap, drum ‘n’ bass, punk and a few others. They are all hideous to my ears – but they are not rubbish, they’re not ‘crap’, they’re not talentless. All of these genres have a valid and important place in music – they may be the last thing I’d ever consider adding to my Spotify playlist, but each has as much value as the rest.
Disliking something does not strip it of its value!

The sE Electronics Reflexion Filter Pro is the industry's favourite and best portable vocal booth. With sE Electronics' patented Air Gap Multi-Layer technology, the Reflexion Filter Pro combines different acoustic materials with isolating air gaps in order to prevent unwanted acoustic artefacts, such as reflections from nearby surfaces. This allows you to capture a dry, un-coloured take, which you can then process to perfectly fit in with any project.
The Reflexion Filter Pro is the choice of professionals across the world and for good reason; while competing filters may look similar, none perform like the Reflexion Filter Pro and many even distort and colour your sound, as well as not dealing with acoustic reflections effectively.
The Reflexion Filter Pro is currently at its lowest price ever - just £169 (also available with a FREE music stand attachment while stocks last - CLICK HERE for more info)! However, we're also running a special deal this weekend where you save another £20 on the item!
