      Mislabeled Product

      Comments about Pearl AshTone Wood Block:

      Despite the description saying this is a large, low tone block, it is actually the PAB50 medium sized middle tone block of the set. I purchased this thinking this was the low tone block and now I have a useless second PAB50. Not really worth returning after costs for shipping it back. Just a disappointment in a box.

          Sounds like a wood block to me. It's true to get the full "tock" sound you have to hit the sweet spot which is smaller than a synthetic block, but big deal. sounds good, looks good. would love if it would mount to a tom tom horn, but oh well.

                Comments about Pearl AshTone Wood Block:

                Pretty good sound from this block. Nice loud "TOK." Wish the opening on the clamp was larger to fit larger mounts (won't fit on a Mapex tom arm, for example). Other than that, it's a well-made block.

                revised review... small sweet spot

                Comments about Pearl AshTone Wood Block:

                I was all excited to get my wood block...and got a terrible sound from it but after futher review...I found you can produce a decent sound... but the sweet spot is small...a 2 to 3 inch radius in the center of block... out by the edge...best sounds produced by hitting it with the side of the stick on edge of block...I still like one piece blocks better...but I wanted to give this product more of a fair review...and I use it today.

                I mounted this on my Djembe for accents... awesome, I have had so many complements at gig's because of the projection and sound of this block.I am using the Lo version, I don't have the other two, but am considering ordering them.

                Great Wood Block

                By Monday317

                from Pittsburgh, PA

                Comments about Pearl AshTone Wood Block:

                I really like this one. Used to be they had a large and small, looks like Big P settled on just the large. Anyway, you can whack it a dozen different ways, and get a dozen different sounds from it. I know there are a lot of decent plastic blocks out there, and many who swear by them. This is just a really nice block I personally think is worth having, if you are going to use a woodblock on your kit. Built nice, looks nice, priced nice.
