About This Listing Designed with Russ Miller to produce innovative sounds. Bristle design provides for two distinctively different tonalities. Position the bristle ends facing downward for maximum articulation; position the bristles laying flat on the head for extra full tones due to the high amount of contact surface area. Copper band on butt-end provides for bright metallic effects on instruments. Comfortable rubber handles ensure a full grip. Retractable when not in use. Russ Miller: "The B3 Brush is what I have been waiting for! Being a fan of the brushes, I have always tried to use them in electric settings. This has always been a problem because of two factors: The sweep would not cut through the amplified music and I couldn't get full crash sounds. The B3 solves these problems. The slight bend applies more bristle to the head and almost triples the sweep volume. The stiffer bristles had high-mid frequencies that cut through and add stability. The metal band on the retractable handle allows you to play great bell sounds and full crash sounds. Engineers love them! The B3 brushes make using brush techniques possible in contemporary music!
