OVERVIEW

Designed in collaboration with New York based Vater artist LaFrae Olivia Sci.

The Monster is a versatile specialty brush that adjusts to provide the subtlety and swish of a brush or a stick-like feel for a fat backbeat without a ton of volume. Vater gives the Monster Brush a large but comfortable grip and wavy polymer strands for unique sound and feel.

For the Cajon

By Jorge Higuera

from Florida

Comments about Vater Monster Brush:

The concept of using these brushes with Cajon I beieve is the most significant issue for any music practisioner at any level. As a percussionist, I increasingly more often use the Cajon / monster brush set-up.

Vater Monster Brushes

Comments about Vater Monster Brush:

I play the set and originally bought these 'brushes' for playing on my set for lighter slower music, and they worked fine. But, recently, I got a Cajon (Box drum). When I played the Cajon with these brushes, it sounded great! I will say, though, that the grip on one brush wasn't done right and will slip, but I only use one brush anyway. I use a brush in one hand to play the more bass-ish stuff towards the center, and my hand for the snare-ish stuff, and it works great!! I would highly recommend these brushes for any drummer - especially anyone who happens to have a cajon. This is a great buy.

Impressive

Comments about Vater Monster Brush:

I'm a guitaist with a love of percussion. So, I get in the percussion when I can or when I feel like it. First of all, I prefer the nylon brushes over metal brushes for the tone AND the convenience. I have come to prefer and enjoy the plastic handles for their comfort. And the larger size are more comfortable with longer use. I also prefer the adjustability of the rings better than bristles that merely slide back up inside a handle. Too much risk of damage. Also I believe the risk of damage is far less with nylon than metal. Others nylon brushes are smaller, and most appear to be well designed and made, but if I lost these, I'd just get another set to replace it.
I haven't tried all brush options available, but I have researched them well. After owning a set of these for a year now, I'm very happy with them. I doubt seriously that any of those others that I didn't choose could outperform these. They provide the sounds I'm happy with & come at a fair price.
They havve taken a lot of whacking, and they have years of life left in them. Well made.
They actually cost slightly more than others I checked out, but the total price, quality, & personal satisfaction make them a great value.

      Comments about Vater Monster Brush:

      Recently, I purchased these brushes for my drummer. My hope is that we are in a medium sized room, and our drummer is TOO LOUD!!! Well, that's probably just about everyone's problem. Nevertheless, I purchased these sticks to see if it would help him tone it down without losing his ability to build and decrescendo. Anyway, it worked!!! The volume level is great. The only problem is that about twice a song, the O-rings keep popping off his sticks and go flying, so his tone and everything he is trying to do is changed in second. Then he has to switch, and it defeats the problem. At this point, he is using one stick and one monster brush, so the sound is about 1/2 toned down. Other than that, the product is fantastic.

        I enjoy using the monster brushes when playing my Cajon because it keeps my hands from being sore or swelling. They also give you a great bounce off the face of the Cajon.

              Comments about Vater Monster Brush:

              I bought these so I could play around on my kit quieter without disturbing neighbors if I want. I didn't want metal brushes or wood rods... these are a nice middle ground.

              They sound good and you can get some interesting tones out of them. When they're adjusted into rod form, the plastic brushes produce a nice low-medium tone. By adjusting your angle of attack, the rubber band piece can produce a nice SMACK! sound. And if you roll the rubber bands down to open up the brushes, you get a nice, warm brush sound.

              Another cool thing is that there's a hint of floppiness to them and they're a good 1" in diameter or so... so when I've switched back to solid, skinny, wood sticks after playing on them for a while, I've noticed that my speed has been improving.

              They've held up great and I'm happy with them.

                  I've been using these for about six months now, along with wire snare brushes for jazz. I also attach LP Finger Shot shakers to the Monster Brush to get additional effects. I purchased an extra set of brushes so the Finger Shot can stay attached to one pair and make changes between numbers easier. Love these on the cajon!
