On display were the perennial hit, the Crush Acrylic kit, the brand new Crush Eminent Birch kit and the Crush Sublime AXM kit in an all-new Trans Satin Black w/Silver Sparkle finish.  Visitors were invited to test out a variety of Snare drums from the Crush C4, Rolled Aluminium, Hand Hammered and Hybrid Hand Hammered ranges.  

Crush artists Craig Reynolds (Brutality Will Prevail) and Boris Le Gal (Chimp Spanner, Betraying The Martyrs, NeonFly) were also on hand to talk about all things Crush, answer visitor questions and demonstrate the kits first-hand.

Announced at 2014 Winter NAMM show, the Crush Red Acrylic kits are immediately available along with the hugely popular and award winning Clear Acrylic kits. The Crush Acrylic series is the most affordable, high-quality seamless acrylic kit on the market.

The development of the Crush Eminent Birch series began with the idea of creating a high-end kit at an attainable price without compromising sound and refined craftsmanship. With a strict selection of North American Birch materials and precision waxed bearing edges, the shell construction has been meticulously designed for multiple playing styles and genres. The Crush Eminent Birch series is immediately available in Silver/Blue Sparkle Fade and Satin Walnut finishes.

The Crush Sublime AXM series is now available in Trans Satin Black w/Silver Sparkle and High Gloss White w/ Silver Sparkle. These two new finishes are complemented by satin drum hardware, the shells are comprised of meticulously selected Ash and North American maple. These hybrid shells feature reinforcement rings, specialised bearing edges, and varying shell plies. The precise attack of Ash pairs beautifully with the warmth of maple. This kit delivers quality construction, style, and sound unlike any other in its class.
