    Chad’s Smith Asks for More Cowbell and Gets It


    New for 2017 Red Hot Chili Peppers Drummer’s Signature LP Rock Ridge Rider® Bell Debuts with

    “12 Days of Cowbell” Holiday Giveaway December 12th – 23rd



    (12.12.2016 – Oxnard, CA) Latin Percussion (LP) has announced the release of Red Hot Chili Peppers’ drummer, Chad Smith’s signature Rock Ridge Rider® aptly named the, “Red Hot Bell.” The 8-inch, USA-made bell is crafted from heavy-gauge steel and is welded by hand to produce LP’s legendary tone. Also of note is a patented high-impact plastic striking surface at the mouth of the bell that saves sticks and adds projection and volume.  Welded to the rear of the bell is a Vice-Clamp Mount™ v-clamp mount that allows it to fit most popular rod diameters from 9.5mm to ½” while maintaining the strongest hold possible for today’s Rock players. 


    “I’ve got a fever and the only the only prescription is more Red Hot cowbell,” said Chad Smith.


    In striking, monochromatic red, it’s stamped with the infamous drummer’s signature and is being played on the current Red Hot Chili Peppers “The Getaway” world tour.
