Rhythm Tech Launches Metalworks High-End Percussion [ Winter NAMM 2007 ]

United States
English
22 January 2007 — Rhythm Tech is proud to announce the introduction of its new line of “Metalworks” percussion. Developed in conjunction with legendary metal percussion artist/craftsman, Pete Englehart—and based on several of his most popular creations— the Metalworks line has been conceived to offer modern drummers and percussionists an assortment of sonically and visually unique, high-quality, handcrafted instruments.

While some of the instruments in the Metalworks line represent advances in the design and construction of the classic Afro-Cuban and Brazilian bells, others such as the Lens Drums and Jingle Shake offer completely new percussion sounds and colors. Due to their highly musical tonal qualities, premium-grade components and reliable mounting system, Metalworks can easily be used to upgrade standard percussion instruments in many conventional situations, from symphony and pit orchestras, drum corps and percussion ensembles to contemporary drumset and ethnic percussion performances in the studio and live.

In addition, Metalworks can also provide a variety of interesting, uncommon sounds that players and composers will find ideal for TV and movie soundtracks as well as avant-grade and alternative records.

“Metalworks is “Modern Art’,” comments Rhythm Tech president, Richard Taninbaum. “More than just form following function, Metalworks percussion is a collection of exceptional musical instruments designed to both integrate and elevate the art and science of percussion.”
