16 New Vater Products for 2012!

StickMate

You’ll definitely want to add these to your stick bag! The StickMate Tambourine and Shaker models slide right on to your stick, brushes and mallets to give you added sound effects while playing, They’re made of lightweight polymer and the low profile won’t interfere with your playing. There’s a cut out in the handle for your thumb to rest in and contact the stick. You can easily put it on and take it off, or tape it on to the grip for extended usage. Patent Pending. StickMate Shaker: VSMS /  StickMate Tambourine: VSMT



 

 

Fusion Acorn VHFAW

  A new tip on an iconic stick...The Fusion Acorn is the same design as the classic Vater Fusion but with an acorn tip for a warmer cymbal and drum tone.  

L 16"   40.64 cm

D .580"   1.47 cm

 
 

BeBop Series

The new BeBop series are smaller grip sized models that are perfect for lower volume or Jazz settings. All three models feature the same profile and tip. The 500 and 525 models come in under a 7A in the grip. The quick taper produces a fast rebound with a small tip size for a clean ride cymbal tone. All three models available in Hickory and Maple. Maple will offer even more of a lighter touch and slightly warmer cymbal tone.

Sugar Maple Phat Ride VSMPTRW

Vater’s popular Phat Ride model is now offered in a Sugar Maple version. Same dimensions as the Hickory model, but made from Sugar Maple for a lighter weight and softer touch. Quick taper to a medium-sized round tip produces a clean sound on ride cymbals. A very versatile stick.

 

L 16"  40.64cm

D .580"  1.47cm

 

 

Two New Sizzle Mallets

 Sizzle Fusion VSZLF

The classic Fusion, with a hard felt mallet head on the end. The smaller mallet head design won't interfere with your grip or playing. Round stick tip for bright cymbal tones.

Sizzle Fusion Acorn VSZLFA

Fusion Acorn model stick with a hard felt mallet head on the end. The smaller mallet head design won't intefere with your grip or playing. Acorn stick tip shape for a warmed and broad cymbal sound.

 

 Splashstick Models Get a New Edge

Vater has updated all Splashstick models to now feature angled edges on the dowel ends for a better feel, rebound and fuller sound.

 

 

New Rubber Xylo and Bell Mallets

Designed for indoor, out-door, or concert settings. The shape of the mallet head is designed for optimum sound throughout the overtone series.All feature Rattan Handles.

 

VM-R1

The soft creates a warm sound that is great for ambiance or soft passages in the music. A great mallet to use in legato passages, allowing the mallets to blend with the rest of the ensemble. It allows the tone of the instrument to speak without being lost. It is a great way to add the sound without the strong attack.


VM-R2 

The medium mallet creates a full sound and is a great blend of attack and tone. The length of the mallet allows you to have the versatility to choke up or to hold the mallets further back for more leverage 

 VM-R3

The hard mallets offer a clear and full sound with strong attack to the instrument without the sound sticking out of the blend of the ensemble.

 

 

Multi Tenor Mallet: MV-T2XL

MV-T2XL

Large 1 ½" lexan disk. The larger hard disk allows the mallet to rebound from drum head to drum head quickly without contacting the rims. Great for articulating scrapes, sweeps and windmills.

 

 

 

 

All of these New Products will make their debut at the Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA on January 19, 2012 but you can start requesting them at your local store today! If you're attending the NAMM Show, please visit the Vater Percusion Booth in Hall D #3076
