Black Widow Drum Mat @ 2013 Winter NAMM

While the Black Widow Drum Mat has been around for a little while, last weekend’s Winter NAMM Show afforded us the first opportunity to take a close look at this uniquely design drum mat. And “mat” is a much better term than “rug” in this case, since the material is considerably thinner and more lightweight than most carpets on the market designed to prevent drum kit slippage. This adds up to a much more portable unit that, based on our demo, appears to work really well – thanks to the miracle of Velcro!
