Slug President, Eric Behrenfeld comments, “Joe Nuñez has been key in the development of this new Badge concept, which incorporates Slug’s patented vented impact pad technology. Joe’s playing on prototypes really helped determine realistic performance needs for the final design of this product. This Badge design is “Tour-Tested-Tough” by one of Metal’s most prestigious drummers. It was a challenge creating a Batter Badge that could do everything Joe wanted, including glowing in the dark so he could keep some visual perspective on his drums during Soulfly’s elaborate lighting and stage effects that happen throughout a show.”.
Slug Percussion brought to market the very first vented impact pad in 1995, and makes avariety of Batter Badges® for different drumhead applications. The new patented Uni-Badge mounts on top or underneath drumheads and is the first of its kind ever for universal drumhead applications. Nuñez also appears on the recent DRUM NATION 3 CD project. The Uni-Badge is now available from drum and music dealers and distributors. Suggested retail price: $9.95 Visit Slug Percussion at: www.slugdrums.com for more information.
