Vic Firth offers a broad variety of “brushes” to deliver a traditional sound or create bold new sound colors. Each model makes its own musical statement and provides the opportunity for an extensive range of effects.
Inspired by and designed with German drumming sensation, Florian Alexandru-Zorn, the Split Brush represents a brand new design concept for a wire brush. Created with two separate rows of medium gauge wire, the two tiered design helps produce a unique and varied weighting of sound with different qualities of articulation. The retractable pull-rod includes a third crimp that offers the player an enhanced setting capability. Florian Alexandru-Zorn is a full-time instructor, musician and author, specializing in brush playing, world music and jazz. He is known for fantastic presentations throughout the world at festivals such as PASIC & the Montreal Drum Festival. Florian has made a tremendous contribution to the world of percussion education with multiple publications including the recently released DVD entitled, “The Brush Revolution”. In this DVD, Florian demonstrates fundamental new concepts for the drummer in order to allow expression in a completely new way. “The new Split Brush model is the ideal design for all brush techniques that I focus on,” states Florian. “Whether I am playing in quiet jazz settings or on big stages with electronic music, this new model helps me perform at my very best!”.
