Puresound

Puresound Percussion was founded in 1995 by Yoav DeBasc, a young auto repair and autobody specialist who also had a passion for the drums. After moving to Los Angeles in the early 1990s, Yoav realized that by combining his love of drumming with his knowledge of metallurgy he would be able to improve the quality of an important but often overlooked part of the snare drum: the snare wires. Using his experience and expertise, Yoav began to formulate special steel alloys and manufacturing processes for a new line of snare wires that would recreate the clarity, sensitivity and tone of classic, American-made snare wires while advancing the state-of-the-art. Through extensive research and development, he discovered that the sound and performance of the snare wires could be modified and enhanced by controlling the alloys, weights and coils Today, PureSound snare wires feature the highest quality craftsmanship and components (including their distinctive copper-colored end-clips) and are available in a wide choice of models to fit a wide variety of modern and vintage drumset, concert and marching snare drums— providing the tone, range, sensitivity and durability that have established Puresound as the world’s leading snare wire specialist. In addition, Puresound continues to develop other new technologies to meet the ever-expanding demands of contemporary drummers. Besides their popular snare wires and accessories, Puresound also offers custom quality Ultrasonic™ snare drums and innovative Speedball® bass drum beaters. Yet, no matter which product you choose— and no matter what style of music you play— Puresound remains dedicated to improving the sound and performance of your drums and helping you improve your drumming.

Ibanez Bass Workshop

Pioneering new frontiers in bass  development is nothing new for Ibanez.For more than 40 years, Ibanez has pioneered new frontiers in bass development, pushing the boundaries of conventional designs for bass players of all styles and an aptitude for new ways of expressing themselves. This spirit of exploration has led to some of the most successful and popular production basses of all time. It is this same drive to bring new and relevant ideas to the forefront that serves as the basis for an ongoing exploratory project, appropriately dubbed the Ibanez Bass Workshop. The impetus behind each one of these unique instruments comes from a personal desire by one or more members of the Ibanez bass development group to satisfy the particular needs of a very particular player. These inventions may not be for everyone, but for those who yearn to explore new sonic vistas through the medium of bass: The Ibanez Bass Workshop project may give you just what you’re looking for. Sliding into the Future of Fretless BassOver 25 years ago, the SR established Ibanez as the leader in innovative bass building. Throughout the years, we’ve made fretless versions of this classic for a limited number of Ibanez artists. Now, The Ibanez Bass Workshop makes this much sought after option available to SR players everywhere with the introduction of the SR Portamento. The SR Portamento offers a Rosewood fingerboard that extends the length of the standard SR neck to a hefty 30-fret length. Several years in the making, the SR Portamento’s new AeroSilk piezo system delivers an uncanny touch of hollow-bodied openness, and realizes the Upright Double Bass sound to blend into the mix that both inspires and redefines the role of the solid body bass. more …… Recreating the 6-String BassThroughout the years, we’ve attentively observed as trends have developed and dictated the demand for different types of instruments to fulfill the creative visions of artists. Sometimes those visions can take us back to instruments of an earlier era. The SR Crossover is such an instrument. Shorter scale 6-string basses were popular in the late 60’s, a zenith of experimentation and creativity. It is in that same spirit that Ibanez has incorporated our own elements of style and innovation to create the SR Crossover 6-string bass. more ….   The key to sustain is integrityIt’s difficult to imagine increasing the amount of sustain the Ibanez BTB has to offer, but with the added mass and stability afforded by this unique single cutaway reworking, the BTB Terra Firma gives you just that. Capitalizing on the shortened distance from the body to headstock, string vibration is optimized beyond anything we’ve ever achieved...
