The Junk Hat is making waves across the drumming world! A chain-dropping, 808-sounding, analog machine that is operated much like a hi-hat, allows you to achieve new sounds in rock, pop, country, hip-hop, Americana, and wherever else your imagination takes you!
Danny Young (bald) and Mike McKee (bald) met a few years back while touring together and very quickly bonded over their mutual love for all things drums/percussion. Since then, they started a very nerdy friendship of developing and creating new instruments to use on their respective gigs: Mike with Delta Rae and Danny with Dan Tyminski.
In 2018, the two officially joined forces and created “BaldMan Percussion”. The baldmen are continually developing new and unique instruments to help take the drum and percussion world to a new sonic space! Their first release, The Junk Hat™, is now making it's way across the world and they are currently in the test stages of their next product!
WITH THE BALDMEN
We have been building our community of bald (and not bald) people on instagram, facebook and twitter over the past year. We can’t thank you all enough for the love and support you’ve shown us so far.
We also LOVE seeing how you are all incorporating the Junk Hat into your live shows, sessions and practicing so feel free to send us photos, videos and tag us in your stories. We want to show the rest of the drumming and music community how unique the Junk Hat truly is!
