Decibel Percussion Cymbal Rake
The Decibel Cymbal Rake was inspired by a cymbal mallet that has been in my section for years but is no longer made. This modernized version features a beautiful, maple handle laser engraved with the Decibel logo. This is the perfect option for when composers call for cymbals to be scraped. The sound is completely different from that of scraping a cymbal with a coin or triangle beater. Not only is the Cymbal Rake louder, but much fuller, bringing out all the colors of the cymbal. In addition to scraping, this mallet works exceptionally well for rhythmic passages normally played with standard brushes which are rarely loud enough. Also works well on gongs.
