Pearl Percussion @ 2013 Winter NAMM

DRUM! Magazine columnist and Nashville studio percussion mainstay Glen Caruba gave us a tour of the new instruments Pearl introduced for hand drummers at the 2013 Winter NAMM show. Cajons continue to be hot in the percussion sector, and Pearl rolled out a bunch of them, including one that features a rough surface for brush swishing and a glam red-sparkle model. We also got a kick out of the nifty quick-release system developed for the newly revised line of cowbells designed with Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez.
