The development of our Metal FX Series, as well as our Modular System (which includes our Jingles & Shakers), started with our desire to design a system that could be added to and allow drummers the opportunity to truly customize their sound, in an affordable way.
Putting our collections together in an “a la carte” style, allows you to purchase individual pieces instead of wasting your money on unnecessary, duplicate parts. This way, not only can we add to all the collections, but you can affordably add and combine the pieces you want to achieve the sound you’ve been looking for.
All handmade, from cutting to coloring.
Every set of components gives you a different option for unique sounds.

The Hex Metal Story
In our search for alternative sounds, we just couldn’t find what we were looking for.
So, using our own twisted way of thinking, we decided to create what we wanted
in the Creative Percussion style!
“I love the sound traditional cymbals make, but I was looking for something different. Having a carpenter’s background and working with wood, not metal, I feel I had an advantage when creating the Hex Stax. Since metal work was all new to me, I didn’t have any rules or restrictions I needed to abide by, it was all up to me and my creativity. I simply wanted to create a different sound, and I did. I put different ideas and processes to the test using, what we call here at CP, a “Kev-olution” process. After a few prototypes, I got a better understanding of what I really wanted as an end result. The creation of the Hex Stax was my first go-round with metal and I love how they turned out; exactly what I had envisioned.”
~Kevin Feeney, Creative Percussion Founder
Our Hex Stax were inspired by the simple thought of "I want something that sounds different." The next thought was "I wonder what holes would do", which lead to the Holey Hex Stax. From there, it went to add-ons and jingles. That was the beginning of a never-ending spark of inspiration for our Metal FX Series and Modular System.
We went from creating the Hex Stax and Holey Hex Stax to developing an entire system that works together in an "a la carte" manner.
