Dreamcatchers WIRED incorporate an adjustable braided stainless steel wire coated in a red nylon and a traditional non retractable wire brush. These are the heaviest in weight, and add approximately 20 grams. to the weight of the brush. They are back beat enabled! The cymbal tone will be clearly audible.
The bright red hoop is expandable or can be retracted back to the handle. The hoop can be played upside or downside. The concept is to guarantee a focal point that can be achieved with the greatest amount of ease. Playing with the hoop upside, the hoop will compress the wires into the drum and produce a big fat back beat.
We can’t say enough about the Dreamcatchers WIRED…………….you’ll just have to get plugged in to get unplugged with these dreamers.
REM incorporate two adjustable nylon hoop and a traditional non retractable wire brush.
The hoops are expandable and have similar characteristics and playing response to the original Dreamcatchers. The smaller diameter hoops of the REM weigh in at approximately 4 grams making the REM an easy transition from traditional brush weights.
All the Dreamcatchers are some of the most unique modern brush designs to reach drummers today. Wire drum brushes were first invented in 1913. After 100 years of very little changes to the concept of wire brushes, we and redesigned and revolutionized the entire concept.

Live the dream with Dreamcatchers!
Incorporate an adjustable polycarbonate rod with an adjustable bead and a traditional non retractable wire brush. The rod is centered above and over the wire brush fan. The rod can be adjusted in length and height by adjusting the O rings. The bead can be set to a position along the rod. The purpose of the bead and rod are to provide a focal point as desired. These added materials are extremely light and incredibly strong with very fast response and memory flexibility. They do not encumber the function of the traditional brush.
When you really need to get the cymbal definition, the double beaded rods got it covered. Reposition the nylon tip or change the length of the rods to get the sound and volume you need. Play them like a regular brush and or turn them sideways to emphasize the tip and rod.
Rhino incorporate an adjustable polycarbonate rod and a traditional non retractable wire brush. The rod used in the Rhino is heavier and stiffer than that of the Cyclops and there is no bead. When rod is engaged in or impacted on rims or cymbals the sound it very distinct. The larger rod has incredible reflex and therefore its rebound is extremely fast. Many other esoteric effect sounds can be achieved by scratching the polycarbonate into the coated head.
Bear Claws create some unique sound possibilities. The poly material is molded at the playing to produce a 90-degree bend. The ‘claws’ are 1 inches in length. They can be used to create cool scratch effects on coated heads. The claws increase the attach and definition on both cymbals and drums. Flipping the claws over and playing on the ‘knuckle’ side is less exaggerated but very effective percussive attack.
Sandman have similar characteristics to the Dreamcatchers. However, the Sandman are 20% larger is size and the filaments are comprised of polypropylene. This combination makes them more rugged and can be used on different percussion instruments as well as drum set. They Hoop allows the compresses the poly filaments in to the drumhead for an awesome fatback beat and also provides an ‘auto-focus’ cymbal connection.
Brush-like/rod combo. These are comprised of polyrod filaments flared outward similar to a non-retractable wire filament brush. They are 14 inches long, the handle is slotted and a removable ¼ inch diameter polycarbonate rod is added for addition dynamic textures. The rod sounds beautiful on cymbals and by simply turning the Rhino to the side rim shots can be introduced to your Black Rhino experience! The ideas are many…….your ideas go here!
