Here we have the first product from GRUX-X. GRUX-X was founded in 2020 by Professional Drummer & Drum Product Design Guru Russ Miller and Drum Building Extraordinaire Bill Detamore.
The first product from this formidable team is the X-Click, Extreme Cross Stick Percussion Accessory. For the X-Click, GRUV-X designed a hybrid formula of 24-plies of American rock maple and copper in a trapezoid shaped body. For mounting these on to drums a proprietary mount, called the “Mono Mount” was designed. The Mono Mount which comes supplied and ready installed on the X-Click works on drums of all sizes from a 10" 6 lug all the way through to a 15" 8 lug, there is a special suspension washer made from silocone between the mount and the X-Click which floats the X-Click from the mount thus improving the resonance and frequency response too.
The X-Click's revolutionary design will give expanded volume and boosted low-frequencies to your cross stick sound on any snare drum. This helps the cross stick tone with execution consistency and also boosts the volume of your cross stick sound. Audio engineers are going to love this product too because the X-Click will eliminate the need to ride the snare drum mic channel, live and in the studio during the cross stick sections of songs.
Another exciting feature of the X-Click is the huge array of finish choices the X-Click comes in. Drummers can choose an X-Click finish that will either match or compliment the colour of their snare drum or drum kit, we had a lot of fun playing around with different combinations, there is certainly something for everyone. There are a range of Satin, Wrap and Exotic options to choose from.
