Freer Percussion products are well known around the world for being the most unique and creative designs, materials and covering techniques. It’s our goals to have FP remain first in its class and a clear leader in the orchestral percussion market.
I am constantly at the drawing board, creating and refining my products. See what’s new, what
we’re working on and what’s coming in the near future from FP.
Carbon Fiber Shaft Triangle Beaters
Freer Percussion stainless and brass triangle beaters now available on a 1/8″ diameter carbon fiber shaft. The difference in response and action from carbon fiber is vast from that of a steel shaft. The carbon fiber shaft offers a small amount of flex and “whip” to the rebound and response of the beater head; this not only absorbs shock, but also aids and facilitates rolls to a large degree.
You will find the feel to be very easy to roll with, and the sound to have less attack and more triangle sound than contact sound from the beater. These came about because of the popularity of my carbon fiber glockenspiel mallets. It seemed that this concept would transfer to a triangle beater nicely and it works so well that this new beater may very well replace the steel shaft version altogether.
New series of bamboo ball mallets with cork and other core materials. Leather core hard model, small ball staccato model, general ball, soft legato ball and the return of my velvety roller mallet now called the VR2.
02. TRIANGLE STATION
Returning by popular demand after four years of absence the new improved orchestral triangle station is constructed of better materials and made to last a lifetime.
03. G.H. GREEN SIGNATURE XYLOPHONE MALLETS
By permission of the Green family I am proud to make a close replica xylophone mallet based on Green’s originals.
04. CLOYD DUFF MODEL 8, 9 & 10
Returning after a few years of absence comes the wood #8, the #9 flip stick with felt on one end and wood on the other, and the #10 chamois.
I’m thrilled to announce the arrival of the publication end of Freer Percussion. My printed music will be focused on out of print and rare xylophone music from what I call the “Xylohpone Players Archival Collection” as well as some new melodic timpani solos I have written and other things.
Please check in frequently as there are many works in process and the site will be updated weekly with new releases. As always, exclusively available direct from Freer Percussion Publications only.
