Twisted Kit EZX
In collaboration with Michael Blair and Sontronics Microphones, Toontrack Music releases the Twisted Kit EZX. In October of 1985 Tom Waits released the album Rain Dogs. The album was an instant classic and marked a new sound for him. A rough, dirty neo-blues style with awkward rhythms and hard edges. Part of the band that contributed to that sound was drummer and percussionist Michael Blair. His highly personal instrument set-up which included a mix of regular drums and odd bits and pieces like trashcans, bedroom furniture and rusty bicycle frames fit perfectly with the sound that Waits was looking for. The combination of Michael's timing, expression, and junkyard sounds created a rich and useful range of musical textures to accent Waits' intricate storytelling.
Available now, the Claustrophobic and Twisted Kit EZX:s have an MSRP of $99 / €89 / £59 each.
