Vic Firth Rute-X & Zildjian FX Raw Crashes | Drum Gear Review

Vic Firth and Zildjian both released new products today. While Vic Firth introduced a new concept called Rute-X, Zildjian presented the FX Raw Crashes.
The Rute-X Rods combine the features of drum sticks and rods and come in 4 different options, three with wooden dowels and one with synthetic ones. Zildjian reintroduced one of the concepts they already offered in their concept shop line. The FX Raw Crashes add a unique sound to every setup and even though they are labeled as crashes it is totally up to you if you play them as a ride cymbal, a crash or however you want to incorporate them.
