Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple
Created from the sound up
The new Absolute Hybrid Series inherits the hybrid shell technology found on our flagship PHX Series. On Absolute Hybrid shells, the design consists of a core ply of wenge a very hard and heavy wood native to Africa, sandwiched between plies of maple, well known for its clear tone. This hybrid design delivers a drum tone that plays rich and clear across the full dynamic range, from pianissimo to fortissimo.
Vater Drum Sticks
1A and 3A series
Vater is good about balancing its catalog with highly practical products and innovative designs and accessories. This year the company introduced unfinished versions of two of its most popular “rock” models, the 1A and 3A, and added custom designs for Primus’s Tim Alexander and 311’s Chad Sexton. Also new are two sizes of clear muting gels, the Buzz Kill and Buzz Kill Dry, and a couple of inventive StickMates, which allow you to add shaker or tambourine textures to your grooves via a slim, lightweight plastic grip attachment. It’s all very cool stuff, so let’s take a look.

Pearl Wood Fiberglass
Having pioneered the fusion of Fiberglass material to wood drum shells in the late 60’s, Pearl is proud to announce the return of Wood Fiberglass Series drums as a limited production offering in 2015.
True to the legacy set by their innovative forefathers, new Wood/Fiberglass drums’ 7-ply Kapur-blended shell features an inner layer of Fiberglass that is hand-applied and lacquered through a painstakingly precise process. To further sculpt the tone of these unique drums, a sharp 45-degree edge is cut on the toms of each kit, while the bass drums feature a fully-rounded bearing edge.
Pearl’s limited production run of new Wood Fiberglass drums will include three traditionally-sized 3-piece shell packs.

These definitely different cymbals were inspired by the revolution of punk and metal during the late 1970s. RUDE continues to be the leading choice of sound for raw, merciless and powerful musical energy in Rock, Metal, and Punk. The sound is raw, metallic, powerful, lively, sparkling, bright, icy and energetic with heavy mid-range harmonics and powerful, cutting characteristics.
Chad Smith Signature Snare Drum
Chad Smith plays drums for the worldwide super group the Red Hot Chili Peppers. His awesome rock snare drum looks as good as it sounds, and consistently produces one of the best overall rock drum sounds in the world today.
The new Chad Smith Free Floater (CS1465F) snare is a crowning achievement in true percussive perfection. Taking its name from the Latin term meaning “I Came, I Saw, I Conquered”, the drum’s three interchangeable 3mm rings are housed in Pearl’s Free Floating snare frame.
