My first cowbell for years! I recently decided to add a cowbell to my kit set-up after around 25 years since the last time I used one. I noted that this model was used by Stanton Moore along with others and took the plunge and bought one. It has a fantastic array of sounds. Played on the body with the tip of a drumstick you can coax a variety of sounds out of it (all of them funky!) and then when you lay into the front edge with the taper of your stick you get the classic donk sound, but this baby is a big cowbell so has a beautiful deep tone. Some cowbells are way to bright but this is just perfect (for what I was looking for) I have placed a piece of moongel inside to dampen the overtones as I was after a real dry articulate bell. This is really only necessary if you're going for that dry funk articulation. It doesn't rob the cowbell of it's tone either. The first time I used it during a rehearsal, everyone smiled. It has that effect. Not in your face just a groovy, funky addition to your set up. Highly recommended and you won't find it cheaper than with the Thomann dudes!! Steve.
It started to rust after about a year. No, it wasn't outside. I have just painted it with matt silver Hammerite anti-rust paint, and this has not altered the sound. The paint might chip when the bell is struck with a beater.
Note to Latin Percussion: Get it right, next time. And stop putting labels on your bells that say "The finest cowbells". The adhesive is a swine to remove. Do your advertising elsewhere.
I was looking for a cowbell sound that would blend in with my drums but also sound warm and healthy on its own. I have owned about 10 cowbells so far and mostly have been lacking this quality. I play percussions and drumset, so i have hit a few cowbells before. I found this cowbell by listening to a record and then finding out what cowbell was used on it, because i loved the sound of it! This is definetly a work horse of a bell and works in so many contemporary styles of music, from latin to jazz and from ballad to fast rock i cover most cowbell work with this. It has a low pitch but has also a nice attack to its sound when hit on the top. Together with a smaller cowbell it works well!
