The Latin Percussion Antonio Sanchez Percussion Pack is LP's way of celebrating the phenomenal drummer's ascendancy in the hierarchy of musicians. Antonio Sanchez came to prominence with guitarist/composer Pat Metheny. The groundswell of accolades and adulation grew into a phenomenon of the Americas. Rarely in popular jazz has a drummer so intricately combined percussion and drumset, crafting rhythms that challenge the technical limits of conventional drumming, causing mortal drummers to scratch their heads in disbelief.
The percussion pack contains two of Antonio's favorite LP percussion instruments. First is a tambourine, an instrument that chimes to the churches and heartland evinced in Pat Metheny's "Americana" compositions. Antonio has chosen the LP174 Cyclops Tambourine in sleek black with contrasting dimpled brass jingles. Mountable at an angle convenient to the drumset player, the Cyclops is playable with sticks, mallets, or hands. Second is the LP1204 Piccolo Jam Block, a small but tremendously significant instrument in Antonio's arsenal. It enables him to play innumerable timbres, from the Afro-Cuban clave to the tones of ancient wood blocks and even snare drum rim clicks. In Antonio's hands, it is no mere metronome. With these two, Antonio Sanchez creates his unbelievable rhythmical and sonic variations.
Included with the LP Antonio Sanchez Percussion Pack is the Gibraltar AM-1 Mounting Bracket, a universally acclaimed unit with a long knurled post that slides up and down and locks into position by means of an eye-hole receiver. It will hold the tambourine or jam block atop or below the horizontal bar, which attaches to a variety of hardware tubes or cymbal stands. The percussion pack comes in a reusable box with flexible plastic handle for convenience.
The LP Antonio Sanchez Percussion Pack 1204-AS will appeal to Latin, world, fusion, singer-songwriter, and rock players seeking to capture Antonio's elusive sounds.
