Jojo Mayer’s latest innovation for Sabian is essentially an effects device that is placed over top of a snare drum. Drummers can then choose to play their snare with or without the effect simply by changing where they strike it. Hit your snare in the center of the head, and the snare’s sound is virtually unchanged. Hit it on or close to the Hoop Crasher, and the effect is pronounced.
Sabian Marketing Manager Luis Cardoso says “Everyone from Tim Austin (Buddy Guy) to Rodney Howard (Avril Lavigne) to Mark Guiliana (Beat Music) – even band & orchestral endorsers like Tim Fairbanks (Rhythm-X) – walk away with one tucked into their cymbal bag.”
