There’s no shortage of hand drums at Messe, with some colorful innovations we’ve never seen in the states. Here’s a quick roundup of some of the highlights we saw that weren’t covered in our previous stories from NAMM in January, along with people we saw.
Chalo Eduardo, Brazil’s gift to Remo Percussion, was on hand to demonstrate some of the new drums and assist Pete Lockett, who was demoing their world percussion offerings. We’ll get some video of that up on the site later.
The Sela crew promises their drums will be available in the US and Canada soon. Ramon Yslas is a key endorser
Get Jugy with it. Germany’s Udu Drums produces Jugy, clay drums with a variety of neck lengths and internal microphones. The mic setup enables Jugy to get reverberant bass sounds like I’ve never heard before.
