SilverFox Marching Affiliate Update!

Wondering how SilverFox Marching Products hold up in the hands of top level ensembles?

Well, we just received this update from SF School Affiliate Derek Lacy and his Newark High School Percussion Ensemble. Congrats to Derek and the band on all your achievements over the past year, keep up the good work!

“We now hold the record again of 31 consecutive State qualifying years. We received a superior rating (highest) at the state band competition as well. The percussion ensemble group at the high school can now boast of having two straight years of all superior ratings! All three percussion ensemble pieces, not to leave out the solos, received superior ratings.

Snares used MS wood, 1001 Ultratip, and the new Clawstix. Tenors used the CT-1, MS Ultratip, the new Clawstix and El Calor timbale sticks. Basses used the CB-A through 4. Durability was great with the Duracrylx. In fact, we tested out using the MS sticks without tape and are glad to report they last at least as long as any other brand WITH tape. When we added tape I would say they lasted about three times as long…The El Calors on the tenors held up all marching season. As the tenors stated “great skank sound and bark”. We even used these during the concert season with an ensemble piece. The Clawstix held up more than 1 marching season with a competitive group. O-rings and materials held up well. We also used the Clawstix as “brushes” during the concert/ensemble season on the concert toms to good results…The pit or front ensemble used the new Field Series Mallets for a second year and can report that they really work! Durability is awesome. The fiber you guys use can take a lot of abuse. None of our mallets have any loose threading! Even after two years.”

Welcome to the New Site!

Welcome to the new SilverFox Percussion website! This has been a long time coming and we are excited to launch this new site! The first thing I’d like to mention is a handful of new products we’re releasing!

First, in conjunction with Mark Castillo (Bury Your Dead, Between the Buried and Me), we have made the new SilverFox Thrasher™, a double-ended monster of a drumstick. With a .625″ diameter and 16.25″ in length, these sticks are sure to hit harder and last longer night after night! Along similar lines we’ve made another double-ended stick, the El Calor™ timbale stick! Al Green’s longtime percussionist and SilverFox endorser Terick Verges has put these to the test and came back to me with only great comments about the sticks’ durability, balance, and great feel. This brings us to the SilverFox NiteStalks™, all-nylon bristle, rod-style brush with a plastic handle for positive gripping and large O-ring to keep the bristles where they belong. The O-ring also works for stiffening (drumstick-feel) or softening (brush-feel) these new essential stickbag tools.

On the artist side, I just heard from Jon Shiffman (Steel Train) that their tours with Tegan & Sara and The Fray, along with a stop at Coachella Festival (I’m jealous!) went well and they will be releasing their new record in June! Newer SF endorser Jay Waterman (Thy Will Be Done) came to visit us last week and told me they’re going out with Fear Factory and Prong for the next couple months, talk about some heavy hitters! Can’t wait to see that show! We’ve also started working with Bo Swanger who stays unbelievably busy recording albums, demos, and jingles!

You can now purchase our full line of sticks, brushes, and multi-rods from Cascio Interstate Music, Dale’s Drum Shop (5-Star Drum Shop) in Harrisburg, PA, and The Village Drum and Music Shop in Rhode Island. Other reputable shops where you can purchase SilverFox products include:
