She-e Wu Series - Concerto Models REDESIGNED

The She-e Wu Series features 3 concerto models, and they have been redesigned for improved performance.  Made with plastic cores which create a bright tone quality, the improved concerto models are wrapped with a durable polyester cord and include top and bottom circle stitching, increasing the mallets’ lifespan while providing ultimate clarity in a concerto setting.  The She-e Wu Series Concerto Models are perfect mallets to speak above any ensemble in a concerto setting and are available with either natural birch or rattan handles.

JOHN "JR" ROBINSON Signature Products


JR-1: The John "JR" Robinson signature model is a full 17" in length with a diameter of .570".  The oval bead and quick taper assist in creating bold sounds on cymbals & toms.  Designed by legendary drummer John "JR" Robinson, the JR-1 is a well-balanced drumstick that is suitable for a wide variety of musical styles.

  • White Hickory

BR-JR1 Brush: The BR-JR1 is a telescoping (retractable) medium gauge wire brush that is substantially longer than a typical wire brush. Built on a rubber handle, the BR-JR1 also features a felt ball on the butt end which can be used for cymbal swells and a nylon tip at the end of the pull rod which helps provide an additional articulation choice on cymbals.

Features:
  • Medium Wire
  • Length: 14.5"

BR-JR2 Martini Brush: The BR-JR2 Martini Brush is a non-retractable brush with heavy plastic red filament, producing a darker sound on drums and cymbals. Designed for more articulate brush sounds, it falls in between the volume of a drumstick and the softer quality of a standard wire brush.

SETH RAUSCH Signature Model


The SR-1 was designed by Seth Rausch, the Nashville-based drummer currently backing Keith Urban.  The SR-1 is similar to a 3A but slightly larger in diameter and shorter in length.  Additionally, the quick taper and round bead provide a bit more front weight which creates a warm sound at high volumes and helps facilitate the quietest of ghost notes.

  • Length:  16"; Diameter:  .598
  • Round Bead

LS-LC LENNY CASTRO Timbale Sticks


The LS-LC model timbale stick was designed by legendary percussionist, Lenny Castro. The length is 16" with a diameter of .500". The stick features a 14.5" black lacquer finish for a distinct look.

BNA-1 NASHVILLE Model


New to the Innovation Series, the BNA-1 Nashville model was designed in conjunction with Brian Fullen, Nashville-based drumset educator and studio drummer.  A model unique to Innovative Percussion, the BNA-1 carries a length of 16.5" with a diameter in the hand at .626" but expanding slightly to .630" at the shoulder creating a powerful sound while maintaining player control.  The barrel shaped bead creates bold yet clear cymbal sounds.
