NAMM 2014 – Crush Drums Booth – M1 Series Pedals and Hardware – Life Tree Sculpture – New Colors and Sizes

The Crush M1 Series Pedal was light enough, yet very solid in construction. We have seen the double pedal (with case) for sale ranging from around $399.00 to $420.00 and would easily say the price is fitting for the quality of the product. The single pedal with case retails for around $229.00.

The Crush M1 Series Double Bass Drum Pedals offer customizable, high-performance features and amazingly durable construction. This Crush M1 Pedal features an adjustable footboard, a quick and easy conversion from standard to longboard, double glide chain, dual-surface beaters and heavy-duty coatings. In addition, the double pedal includes a direct-drive adapter and a hard plastic case.

Pedal Specs:

• Machined Aluminum Footboards

• Pressed Brass Heel Plate Bearings

• Adjustable Cam

• Independently Adjustable Footboard

• Double Smooth Glide Chain

• Direct Drive Adapter Included

• Pedal Tool Included

• Modular Design Allows Conversion of Single to Double Pedals

• Dual Surface Beater

• Heavy Duty Coating

• Hard Plastic Case For Single and Double Pedals

New to the series is the M1 Hi-Hat Stand. Constructed with a solid aluminum framework, machined footboard, 2-leg support and heavy duty 1.1” tubing, the M1 Hi-Hat Stand delivers rugged durability and precise functionality. We stomped on this stand and the video is correct, it’s very durable and super-stable.

Additionally, the Crush Booth was the talk of NAMM due to this amazing “Life Tree” sculpture by Sawbladehead Designs. This thing was absolutely amazing, details everywhere we looked and it apparently only took about 20-25 minutes to put together. There was not one stroll we made past their booth that didn’t have swarms of people checking it out and taking photographs. It was simply stunning.

Crush Drums also introduced three new kits at NAMM this year, a bunch of new colors and some new sizes, adding to their existing product lines. The Crush Acrylic Series is now available in Red. A 20″, 10″, 12″ and 16″ configuration is now available in both Red and the original Clear acrylic finish. The new Eminent Birch Series kits feature 100% North American Birch shells and four killer new finishes: Blue/Silver Sparkle Fade, Satin Walnut, Satin Vintage White and Red Sparkle. The Chameleon Complete Series includes a 5-piece hardware pack (standard) and comes in four finishes: Black, White and the new Light Blue Sparkle and Metallic Orange colors. The Sublime AXM Series kit is now available in two new finishes: Trans Satin Black w/ Silver Sparkle and High-Gloss White w/ Silver Sparkle.

Winter NAMM 2014 took place in Anaheim, California, January 23rd – 26th and was one of the best shows we have experienced in recent years.
