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.”
