The Meinl Compact Wire Brush was designed with matched grip players in mind. Featuring a retractable design without the typical push/pull rod for a more comfortable matched grip playing feel.

Compact Wire Brushes

Meinl’s straightforward line of brushes provides drummers and percussionists with the tools they need to play the traditional whilst exploring new sounds and textures.

Wire brushes are a must-have for most drummers. Whether you want to play classic jazz, need to develop your sweeping brush technique or want a different sound for kit or percussion, wire brushes are a staple in the drummer’s arsenal.

Typically drummers adopt a traditional grip when using brushes, in keeping with tradition. However many drummers prefer a matched grip when using sticks and find it difficult to adjust to a traditional grip for brush playing.

Meinl developed their compact wire brushes to provide the option to comfortably use matched grip when utilising brushes, making brush playing more accessible to matched grip players.

The Meinl Compact Wire Brushes fully retract into the handles without the use of a push/pull rod. Often the circular end of the push/pull rod can interfere with the comfort and performance of those who use a matched grip for brushes.

By removing the push/pull rod, Meinl has created a set of brushes that provide the same functionality as traditional retractable brushes but without the associated interference and discomfort for matched grip players.

The retractable feature of these brushes allows drummers to safely store and transport their brushes without fear of bending or damaging the wires.

In addition, the ability to retract the wires also provides the option to quickly find the correct amount of spread allowing for a variety of sound options. From a short, tight response to a full, airy spread and everything in between, these standard wire brushes have you covered.

Perfect for use on snares and full kit, these wires can also be used with various percussion instruments to discover new and interesting sounds.

Featuring an easy-to-grip black handle adorned with the Meinl logo, brush variety name and white ends for a comfortable matched grip hold.

Meinl has developed an array of drum and percussion brush options for a variety of sound situations as part of their Stick and Brush line. From wire and nylon brushes to Cajon specific percussion brushes.

Meinl Stick and Brush

The Meinl Stick and Brush series feature a range of various drumstick sizes and tip options, along with selections of multi-rods, brushes and mallets. Whether you’re looking for the perfect feel and response in a drumstick, want a specific percussion sound or require the light touch of brushes or rods, the Meinl Stick and Brush range covers all options.
