The Freer Percussion mesh muffler is something entirely new and unique. After testing over thirty different materials and trying them in the orchestra over the years, I have finally settled on this mesh fabric that comes from Sweden. It muffles the drum perfectly for clarity in pianissimo playing yet does not lower the pitch of the head or cause any loss of snare response. Because of the holes in the fabric, the muffler is still very light in weight, therefore the head still breathes enough to give life to the bottom head which is crucial for great snare response and sensitivity. Testing back to back in the hall has proven this to sound far superior to any handkerchiefs, lycra or any other material. Stop over muffling your snare drum! Try this for all your solos, excerpts and soft playing especially in auditions! Super versatile for all playing. Also available in 13″ size.
Now fitted with a custom designed plastic clip for easy attachment to ANY type of counterhoop! No more Velcro like the old design and better yet…NO PAPER CLIPS!
NOT just another stick bag.
The new Duo Bag is a thoughtful design that offers you far more than the many average “stick bags” on the market. All of them are essentially the same, some differences in size options but…with all the same problems.
The Freer Percussion Vertical Stage Case is designed to be the ultimate audition case as well as the most practical multi function case on stage. This case is suitable for percussion, timpani, drum set, marimba or all at the same time.
Tonkin shaft with convex felt core and extra hard felt cloth cover. Great staccato mallet. Also known as “Freer greens” these have now found their way into hundreds of timpani players cases and have become a standard for nearly 1000 customers.
My triangle clip was designed out of necessity like all of my products. After so many years in the Cleveland Orchestra using a variety of triangle clips it became clear to me as to what would be the ideal triangle clip. I came up with my own unique custom design unlike anything else.

All around general stick perfect for anything and my daily "go to" stick in the Cleveland Orchestra. Effortless to roll with and perfect size bead to enable a super wide dynamic range.
