You can't cover "Crazy Train" without a Vibra-Slap.
Perfect for Sweet Emotion
Perfect sound and tone for Areosmith's Sweet Emotion intro. Very satisfied.
I wish they would have carried the Vibra-Slap II Deluxe
The Vibra-Slap has always been my favorite percussion sound effect. This unit works just fine, but the deluxe edition has a longer ring-out time and a slightly lower, fuller sounding timbre.
Check out BOTH the LP208 and LP209
I bought this without knowing there was a bigger version with deeper tone and longer sustain - which is what I was looking for. This is the LP208, its bigger brother is the LP209. I have now bought both, and the 209 is more useful overall, in my opinion. Though there is a good case to be made for owning both for a choice of tones. LP also makes a metal one, but before you buy that you should hear the sound sample on LP's web site - that one rings like a bell, which isn't necessarily desirable in a Vibra-Slap effect.
