New TC Helicon VoiceLive 3

January 24, 2014  -  Filed under Drums, Events, Guitars, Technology, Videos
Pretty amazing pedal. It basically does EVERYTHING, and I don’t say that lightly. This thing harmonizes automatically using a built in microphone or line in to detect key, has all your standard TC Electronics and TC Helicon guitar and vocal effects, changes the gender of your voice believably, acts as a vocoder, looper, etc… Check out these videos straight from the 2014 NAMM show in Anaheim, CA.

Mapex Unveils Soniclear Bearing Edge

January 23, 2014  -  Filed under Drums, Events
The SoniClear bearing edge is standard on all Armory shells and allows the drumhead to sit flatter and make better contact with the shell. The result is a stronger and deeper fundamental pitch, effortless and consistent tuning, and a significantly expanded tuning range. Just watched a Mapex rep tune a drumhead in literally seconds perfectly in tune to a much lower pitch than was previously possible. The new bearing edge really does make the head sit more stably! Pretty cool stuff. More to come from the 2014 NAMM show in Anaheim, CA.

Setting up your drums and then later, packing them up is always frantic and hurried and it is always hard to find small items that are dropped. Make this part of the process faster and easier. Drummers who have used this great new hi-hat clutch from Gibraltar say they will never use another clutch!

 

Just pull on the metal sleeve and the auto clutch releases. Slip off the felts, slip on your top hi-hat cymbal then push in at the bottom of the metal sleeve and you’re locked in place. The all metal design uses a spring and ball bearings to hold the sleeve in place. It couldn’t be easier!
