Bob HyamsBob Hyams - Black Widow inventor

Tired of having to lug a big piece of carpet along with his drums to parties, clubs and recording studios, Bob Hyams was a serious drummer who played nearly everyday and worked as often as he could. Bob figured there had to be a better way to secure his drums, protect his floors and lighten his load. So, necessity being the mother of invention, he set out to develop a drum mat that would meet his needs.

After several preliminary attempts, Bob settled on a design that combined a heavy-duty yet lightweight material with a spider-like web of super-gripping Velcro™. This new system not only securely anchored his bass drum and hi-hat pedals, it prevented his entire drumkit from creeping and crawling whenever and wherever he played, it folded up in seconds and it traveled in his bass drum case — allowing Bob to get rid of his bulky drum rug once and for all.

Today, Bob’s ingenious invention is known as the Black Widow Drum Web™ and, although it has only been on the market for a few months, it has become one of the fastest selling new drum accessories in years. Perhaps this is due to the fact the “Widow” is an affordable, easy to use accessory that works for virtually every drummer, every day.

"The ‘Widow’ isn’t just for the rich and famous drummers who play stadiums and arenas all around the world," Hyams explains. "It’s for local, everyday players like me who set-up and pack-up their own kit and who appreciate how its simple yet advanced design can help make their lives better and easier."

The Black Widow inventor is now giving other “everyday drummers” the chance to tell their stories on the Black Widow website and social media. In order to participate, Black Widow owners can record and post their testimonial videos on Youtube and then enter the link at www.blackwidowdrumweb.com/everyday. The videos will be available for general viewing on Black Widow’s YouTube channel. As an added incentive, Bob will personally select the best submissions for use in Black Widow’s upcoming print and electronic advertising in leading drum publications.
