    "In one word super! Finally being able to portray the ideas I have in my head."
    • Arie den Boer
      Metropole orchestra, Carel Kraayenhof y su Sexteto Canyengue

    "Wow! said the technician; where did you get such a magnificent sound?
    At last there is a way to sound softly and musically while playing with normal intensity. An everlasting (soft) sound."

    "They are far out! Multi employable. Top rods! Foxy colours."
    "They rock. To be used in whatever situation. A different rod for every mood. Finally the ideal rods for percussion players. Much more sound."
    "Unbelievable fat sound!"
