Default Cool Claws

This seems pretty cool, in a novelty sort of way:

I could certainly see your hip-hop session drummer going for a set of those in gold!

What kind of ridiculous?

Okay i think i see your point on the artists. I think there are a few alright bands on there but most of them are a bit sort of pop and all that.

my kit has 50% offset lugs, so on the front of my kick theres a lug at the very top and the very bottom... i could see myself getting 1 pair and just outting them on the top and bottom on the kick

Those are very cool and I have wanted a set for some time. I think it would be great to have all kinds of cast claws like this - skulls, mythical figures, leaves, faces, knives, musical notes, words, etc. With all the customization going on, I'm surprised no one has done this before.

^^ Right?^^

Id have about as much much faith in plastic claws as I do in Yamaha's plastic nouveau lugs on the now dico'd Stage custom Nouveau kits!
12bux a pop? Keep em! They look pretty cool however!

I dunno, just really waddish, so to speak. Wad-like, if you will.
Just my strong opinion. Too metal/goth/lame.

Not to say other designs couldn't be cool, but I just hate the look of these.

Yes, I do use these.


The ones I use are metal, though the ABS Plastic ones are really durable and the owner of the company, Rob, plays with those on his kit. Plus they are less expensive than the metal ones.

New designs are in the works, I have seen the prototype for the skeleton hands, and those are BAD ASS!! Rob said he is sending me an email with some more designes, but I don't think I can share them until they are in production.

It's a cool way to pimp out our kit. I get compliments all the time about how sweet they are.

If plastic is good enough to use for drum heads, maybe it would work for hardware, too, and save some weight.

ABS is pretty strong and I don't think anyone really cranks their bass drum heads, but the steel or cast are available.
