Power Play
Dixon has upgraded its nine-ply, 6- by 13-inch Rosewood Power Piccolo Snare. The drum is now equipped with rock maple hoops, finished to match its natural rosewood shell. The plied wood hoops balance the character of rosewood for a richer-sounding backbeat.

Revamped & Reissued
Ampeg has reissued its V-4B 100-watt all-tube bass head. The new head embodies the original’s tone in a package that is unique to the V-4B. New features include an integrated DI with ground lift, a
-15dB input for active basses and a range of speaker outputs at different impedances.

Mini Strobe
Peterson’s StroboClip, the company’s smallest multi-temperament tuner, is accurate to one-tenth of a cent. In addition to standard equal-temperament tuning, StroboClip has presets that facilitate “sweetened” tunings, Eastern temperaments and other alternate tuning methods. Applications include a wide variety of string and wind instruments.

Jingle Some of the Way
Latin Percussion's Click Hi-Hat Tambourine lets players mute the jingles with a simple click of an oversize button. Featuring a durable plastic frame crafted from Jenigor, the tambourine mounts to the pull rod of a hi-hat stand. When muted and struck, the Click Hi-Hat Tambourine creates a quick, trashy sound effect.
