HammeraxHammerax has entered into an agreement where  drum virtuoso Terry Bozzio will endorse and play Hammerax Hybrid bronze hanging sculptural percussion instruments.

Hammerax has a sculptural hybrid factory in Florida where they craft hanging bronze instruments that are suspended from extremely strong and light cord. These instruments are mounted on cymbal boom stands like chimes. The patented shapes, alloys and hammering techniques give these instruments sounds never before heard. They are very tough and playable with drumsticks. “This is an important step to be working with Terry in our Hybrid efforts.” said Hammerax President, John Stannard. Terry has just received 3 styles of Boomywang, 2 sizes of Culebra, 2 Glass,  a 28” Meanie, , and a 24” thin Gong with a hand hammered Hammerax “H” logo.

Hammerax - Terry Bozzio

Terry’s bio is diverse to say the least. After extensive classical training Terry played with a variety of acts, from small bands to Woodie Shaw, then in 1975 joined Frank Zappa and notably played on “The Black Page” a piece so dense with notes that the sheet music was nearly black with ink. Terry has played with Mark Isham, Herbie Hancock, Korn, Billy Gibbons, Zakir Husain, Giovani Hidalgo, and Jeff Beck. Terry co-produced the Grammy award winning “Guitar Shop “ by Jeff Beck. Terry is now Co- Director of The Drum Channel.

Terry Joins a growing list of Hammerax hybrid endorsers including Dame Evelyn Glennie, Pat Mastelotto of King Crimson, Emil Richards, Walfredo Reyes Jr, Will Callhoun, Marco Giovino, Danny Gottlieb, Omar Hakim, and others.
