Drums & Percussion
Roland V-Drums Acoustic Design
V-Drums Acoustic Design is a brand-new V-Drums experience, blending the physical presence of acoustic drums with Roland’s world-leading digital percussion technology. When you need the glamour and presence of a full acoustic drum set on stage—but with the convenience and control of electronic drums—the VAD503 is the perfect solution. This premium ‘one-up, one-down’ kit features wooden shells with full depth and diameter, exquisitely finished and mounted on double-braced chrome stands for a look that will have the audience convinced you’re playing acoustic drums.
Some of the acoustic guitar players in this rundown are the hardest working players we know – touring, creating, striving to maintain their craft. It’s a difficult journey to maintain and especially so in this year. Which makes their achievements all the more impressive.
The world refuses to do without Gustav Mahler, whose symphonies require a density of musicians that’s not at all appropriate in our era of social distancing.
THE NEW STUFF
Promark FireGrain Series Drumsticks
Promark’s revolutionary heat-tempering process transforms ordinary hickory into drumsticks with unprecedented durability. No excess vibration, no space age gimmicks and consistent feel from pair to pair. State of the art selection process for the strongest wood from the finest hickory trees.
Sabian's New HHX Complex Cymbals
The new 17” and 19” HHX Complex o-zones deliver a dark explosive attack and one of the most aggressive effects cymbal Sabian has crafted to date. These are the first odd-sized o-zones produced and fit nicely in the HHX complex family. The new 21″ and 23″ HHX Complex Medium rides produce controlled tones and a complex cut that will sit comfortably in any mix. Dual hammering process that brings out a sweet rich complex tone that allows the stick to sit nicely on top of a warm dark complex undertone.
