Inspired by and designed with German drumming sensation, Florian Alexandru-Zorn, the Split Brush represents a brand new design concept for a wire brush. Created with two separate rows of medium gauge wire, the two tiered design helps produce a unique and varied weighting of sound with different qualities of articulation. The retractable pull-rod includes a third crimp that offers the player an enhanced setting capability.
Florian Alexandru-Zorn is a full-time instructor, musician and author, specializing in brush playing, world music and jazz. He is known for fantastic presentations throughout the world at festivals such as PASIC & the Montreal Drum Festival. Florian has made a tremendous contribution to the world of percussion education with multiple publications including the recently released DVD entitled, The Brush Revolution . In this DVD, Florian demonstrates fundamental new concepts for the drummer in order to allow expression in a completely new way.
The new Split Brush model is the ideal design for all brush techniques that I focus on, states Florian. Whether I am playing in quiet jazz settings or on big stages with electronic music, this new model helps me perform at my very best!
