X-Percussion the high-tech, hand-crafted drum accessory maker founded by professional drummer Russ Miller and veteran drum designer and craftsman Bill Detamore, today announced the introduction of new CLICK-Mates Pork Pie snare drums and an expanded offering of limited edition CLICKs for 2023. The X-Percussion CLICK instrument provides players with an optimal and enhanced cross-stick sound courtesy of a 24-ply, hybrid North American Hard Rock Maple and pure copper sheet lamination.
“CLICK-Mates pair the craftsmanship and pure tonality of Pork Pie custom snare drums with a factory installed CLICK,” explains Miller. “Players and audio engineers love the CLICK because they can consistently and efficiently execute a cross-stick sound that delivers more volume and increased tonal range than the traditional technique utilizing a flanged metal counterhoop.” The CLICK easily integrates onto any 10-inch through 15-inch diameter snare drum using the proprietary, low-profile Mono Mount system.
New CLICK-Mates are available in eight finishes and two shell types (6.5” x 14” SSP: $499.99-$599.99). The snares can also be custom ordered in any size, shell type or finish option (pricing available upon request).
To celebrate X-Percussion’s expanded line and legendary family of artists, the company has also launched four models of the inaugural Artist Signature Edition or CLICK-AE for 2023 (SSP: $79.99). Each finish is hand-selected by the artist and includes:
- Dennis Chambers (Canary Yellow)
- Jeff Hamilton (Gloss Black)
- Russ Miller (Wavy Ebony)
- Steve Smith (Chrome)
Last but not least, four brand new finish options are being added to the Limited Edition CLICK Series offering (SSP: $69.99). “Black Chrome and Brass are perfect for any modern or vintage black nickel and polished brass snare drum.” Miller says, “For a more organic look, drummers can choose more understated Shadow Maple or Flame Maple finishes.”
All X-Percussion products are handcrafted in the U.S. and include a limited lifetime warranty.
