What is "Popcush"
"People that know me know that I often make up words to better express myself, hence popcush. It describes my ideal timpani sound: one that has a clear fundamental (pitch center), immediately followed by a warm and supportive tone. I've always gravitated towards wood cores, as they get the sound out of the drum quickly and create a "pop" that gives an immediate presence, so 5 of the 6 mallets have wood cores. For select models, we've also added an additional layer of inner liner felt, which helps create that beautiful "cush(ion)" sound that I really love.
