Crafted from LP's exclusive plastic formulation, this jam block delivers a rich, real-wood like sound yet it has the durability to withstand the heaviest hitting drummers. Another model to consider is the LP Stealth Jam Block w/Mount. Constructed from Jenigor, this jam block sports a killer black finish and can produce a wide array of tones ranging from warm to sharp.
Meinl is another popular jam block manufacturer, and they offer a variety of best sellers here.
