It’s hard to reinvent the wheel, and the same thing could be said for bass drum claws. But that didn’t stop the folks at MacEachern Drum Company from devising a new twist on this often overlooked widget. The company’s Cool Claws stand out with boldly sculpted chrome-plated claw-end designs, like the pictured Knuckles model, which grips your bass drum hoop with beefy metallic hands. Other options feature stars, cobwebs, pentagrams, crosses, and even dollar signs. Side-mounted Cool Claws ($99.95 for a set of ten) include tension rods and an extra long drum key, while the Knuckles design ($19.95 per pair) retrofits to standard bass drum hardware.
