With metal and nothing but metal in mind, we mod-ed and tweaked until we forged the heaviest sounding metal axes ever built. For the ultimate in playability we took our legendary super-thin, ultra-playable Wizard RG neck, and upped the ante to Nitro Wizard – as fast and comfortable, but with added road-tested durability. Every Iron Label axe is matched perfectly with American-made EMG® or DiMarzio® pickups. Whether it’s one of the original austere models or one of the new pumped up, decked-out spotlight-stealers, you’ll find the Iron Label Series to be the perfect metal machine, ready to rattle bones and wake the dead.

The Custom Pro series of snare wires are the ultimate in ease-of-use.
Available in 13″ and 14″ models, the Custom Pro Series wires are designed with Anti-Choke end plates that significantly reduce annoying snare buzz and also provide a wider range of available snare tension without choking the drum. The Speed Release straps allow the player to disengage the snare wires without releasing the straps for the strainer or butt clamps. The result is snare wire changes that can happen in seconds. The brass models provide a brighter, resonant sound, whereas the steel models provide a darker, crisp response. More Puresound news …..

Since our formation, our main objective has been to offer percussion instruments which comply with the highest quality levels regarding manufacturing and materials used. Only by committing to the highest standards, we can guarantee top quality instruments, the maximum of playing comfort, the best possible sounds, and therefore long lasting customer fulfillment.

Hand hammered cymbals created for today’s music. And ultra-modern designs that give drummers more sounds to choose from. Between our traditional foundry in Turkey and our state-of-the-art facility in Germany, we do it all. Cymbals, sounds and beyond.
The warm darkness of traditional hand hammered cymbals is re-imagined with Byzance. Each range is hand crafted by MEINL artisans at our foundry in Turkey, then given sound-enhancing final touches by our craftsmen in Germany. Six different ranges offer a choice of feels and sounds for virtually every style of music. Best of all, with Byzance your sound is all yours, because every Byzance cymbal is a one-of-a-kind.
While traditional cymbal making covers the warmer, darker end of the sound spectrum, it takes modern cymbal making technology to create brighter, glassier sounds. With M-Series and Soundcaster those qualities come to life through unique sounds and stunning looks.
Three different cymbals, created from three different metals, producing three different sounds, have one thing in common: Their bright responses are aggressive! Mb20 is powered by thick bronze for maximum projection. Mb10 delivers a more focused degree of cut. Mb8 slices through with a direct response. This trio delivers three levels of aggression designed to cut through the loudest music
Loud. Louder. Loudest. From the loud Classics, to the louder Classics Custom to the loudest, Classics Custom Extreme Metal, this trio of innovative cymbals is all about high-energy response. These cymbals add pure punch wherever clarity and cut are a must. Ideal for pop, rock, and the most brutal metal imaginable, all three will get you heard.
When you want something totally different – something wilder than normal – step into Generation X. There are no rules. Innovation is the reason these cymbals exist. This diverse collection of designs looks and sounds creative, even crazy, but it makes perfect sense if what you want are unique sounds to create your own sonic signature.
If you’re choosing your first set of real cymbals, HCS and MCS offer looks and sounds that are much more serious than their price tags suggest. Designed by the MEINL R&D team and crafted using our advanced technology, these two nicely priced series let you make your first set-up one that you can be proud of. After all, every drummer wants cymbals they feel good about, right? Take your pick – HCS in brass or MCS in bronze.
Darker sounds blend with the music, brighter ones cut through. Many players mix them together. The Bronzes Only MEINL offers four bronzes. High numbers deliver more tone; lower ones sound brighter and tonally tighter.

The ProMark company was founded in 1957 by Herb Brochstein, a professional drummer and drum shop owner. ProMark has always been a family business and so continues with the 2011 purchase by D’Addario & Company from Herb’s son Maury. The offices and factory remain in Houston, Texas; manufacturing hickory, maple and Japanese Shira Kashi™ Oak (ProMark was the first American drumstick company to successfully market sustainable Japanese Oak) drumsticks in its modern 90,000 square foot facility.
ProMark uses only un-endangered wood in the manufacturing of its sticks and mallets. The harvesting of our hardwoods is carefully controlled, with replenishment of the forest as one of our top concerns. Prior to becoming drumsticks, the wood goes through a multitude of selection and pre-finishing processes at our own mill in the mid-south, followed by rigorous inspections throughout the manufacturing process.
The Houston manufacturing team works with the state-of-the-art machinery to produce the drumsticks, keyboard and timpani mallets that are designed tested and used by top performers, educators, students and enthusiasts throughout the world.
ProMark has been the sticks of choice by such renowned artists as Neil Peart, the late Elvin Jones, Ringo Starr, Phil Collins, Mike Portnoy, 9-time DCI champion Concord Blue Devils, and many, many more.

Puresound Percussion was founded in 1995 by Yoav DeBasc, a young auto repair and autobody specialist who also had a passion for the drums. After moving to Los Angeles in the early 1990s, Yoav realized that by combining his love of drumming with his knowledge of metallurgy he would be able to improve the quality of an important but often overlooked part of the snare drum: the snare wires. Using his experience and expertise, Yoav began to formulate special steel alloys and manufacturing processes for a new line of snare wires that would recreate the clarity, sensitivity and tone of classic, American-made snare wires while advancing the state-of-the-art. Through extensive research and development, he discovered that the sound and performance of the snare wires could be modified and enhanced by controlling the alloys, weights and coils
Today, PureSound snare wires feature the highest quality craftsmanship and components (including their distinctive copper-colored end-clips) and are available in a wide choice of models to fit a wide variety of modern and vintage drumset, concert and marching snare drums— providing the tone, range, sensitivity and durability that have established Puresound as the world’s leading snare wire specialist. In addition, Puresound continues to develop other new technologies to meet the ever-expanding demands of contemporary drummers. Besides their popular snare wires and accessories, Puresound also offers custom quality Ultrasonic™ snare drums and innovative Speedball® bass drum beaters. Yet, no matter which product you choose— and no matter what style of music you play— Puresound remains dedicated to improving the sound and performance of your drums and helping you improve your drumming.
