Vic Firth RE·MIX Brushes

Drummers, why settle for just one kind of brush when you can have four? Each model in the RE·MIX series uses a different material—from softest to loudest: broomcorn, African grass, birch dowels, and rattan—for a variety of tones and attacks. Pair one brush with another (broomcorn with rattan is pleasingly multidimensional), or mix components within one brush. A RE·MIX on display at Vic Firth’s NAMM booth featured all four in one, an attention-getter both sonically and visually.

$32.99/pair street, $59.99 for combo pack of two | vicfirth.com
