Jam block

From AudioLexic

Jump to: navigation, search

A jam block is a modern, hard plastic version of the more fragile wood block. It is sturdy, designed for hard hitting and is becoming more and more popular with modern drummers, due to its durability and sound. Jam blocks are usually attached to timbales and drum kits. These blocks are often used in Salsa, Cuban, and Latin American music. Jam Blocks are often used in the marching percussion idiom as well. There are two different colors as well. A red jam block has a lower pitch than a blue jam block which is higher in pitch.
