Pearl Signature Cowbells

Pearl Percussion introduces newly redesigned cowbells with the functionality and timbres to fit your percussion needs, the Horacio Hernandez Signature Cowbells!  Pearl has partnered with Grammy Award winning artist Horacio "el Negro" Hernandez to create the most innovative and melodic line of cowbells on the market!

Sold individually, these bells are of carbon steel construction with a black powder coat finish and feature many of the key aspects from the original Horacio Hernandez Signature Cowbells, such as a swiveling mount which allows the player to stack multiple bells on a single post without wingnut interference, as well as two playing surfaces, flat and rounded, to accommodate player position and preference.

New for 2013, the bells feature a Quick Release bracket which mounts on any 3/8" post. By affixing the bracket to a post, the bell can be attached by simply dropping it into place on top of two cushioned pins. Remove the bell by easily lifting it up and off of the mount. Players now have the option to mount the bells in a multitude of conventional playing positions or hold them in their hands for an authentic performance style. Once in place, the bracket can remain mounted to the hardware, making setup and tear-down a breeze.

Powder coated in a bright yellow finish, the bracket is included with and is universal for all HH Signature Cowbells.
