OXO Automotive: Car Care Product Line

OXO Automotive: Car Care Product Line – Discontinued :(

 

Unfortunately OXO Good Grips has pretty much discontinued their amazing, best on the market Automotive line of Car Care products. Their Auto brushes are so user friendly well made and designed and they last for years, and way better then any natural wool mitt on the market, they do not leave any micro contaminants as wool mitts do so you don’t scratch you expensive paint finish. If you are an auto and motor sport enthusiast or just a clean freak, I suggest emailing or even better calling OXO’s Consumer Care Center at 1(800) 545-4411 and their OXO’s corporate New York Design Studio at (212) 242-3333 and requesting the full comeback of all the original Automotive Car Care Product Line of cleaning brushes, your car will thank you.

Premier The “BEAST” Snare Drum

Premier The “BEAST” Snare Drum

Premier or Keith Keough please bring back the The “BEAST” Snare Drum!!!

Call Premier at (714) 981-5460 and +44 (0)116 279 1444 to request these super cool “BEAST” Snare Drum to remain in their Snare Drum product lineup. But best is to try calling Keith Keough at +44 (0)745 027 5387 of the British Drum Co.

Premier: The Beast Snare Drum

Premier: “BEAST” Snare Drum

Premier’s elusive “BEAST” Snare Drum premiered at The Winter NAMM Show 2015 and it delivers unrivalled power and sensitivity and is loaded with innovations that make it the most ferocious Premier snare drum ever produced.

The secret behind the BEAST lies within Premier’s breakthrough shell technology, the Air-Flow system, a triumph of British design and technical ability from which it takes its name – British Engineered Air-Flow Shell Technology.

This Air-Flow Shell Technology runs at the heart of the BEAST. Sonic Chambers circulate the air movement through the shell bringing body and depth to its tonal characteristics. The power and projection is transported via optimally placed Air Projection Vents that control the volume of air released from the shell. The end result is a snare drum that is dynamic, dominant and versatile.

Expertly engineered by (Keith Keough – now co-owner of the British Drum Company) at the Premier Custom Works, The BEAST is constructed from proven materials that enhance performance – the lugs are machined from solid aluminium and fitted with stainless steel True-Tune Inserts that pivot freely, delivering precision alignment and tuning; whilst the cast aluminium hoops further stabilise the tuning process within any range.

Taking Premier’s famous shell-building techniques to new heights, The BEAST features a massive 50-ply (28mm) specially blended shell, formulated and hand-made in Leicester England from the finest woods recognised in drum manufacture: birch, tulip, sycamore, oak and maple.

The BEAST is built for endurance and demands to be played. Heavily influenced by our core values – passion, quality and innovation – it combines ground-breaking design with British ingenuity, setting new standards to perfect the world’s most powerful snare drum ever.

Unfortunately there are no videos on YouTube to see and especially hear this cool snare drum in action. What a total bummer that Premier only made this drum in a small production run. But most disappointing to hear was that Premier Percussion a well-known British Drum Manufacture since 1922 closed there plant in the UK and have moved all their production to Taiwan, what a shame!

Ferrari LaFerrari spotted in The Hamptons

A red Ferrari LaFerrari was spotted in The Hamptons departing an enclosed auto transportation company’s two 18-wheelers on Long Island’s East End for display at the new stunningly large Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, New York on a late lazy Tuesday afternoon this July 30th along with nine other rare Ferraris.

I was just taking a ride on my Ducati 1200 Multistrada S Sport out to the Hamptons just to clear my head and get some fresh sea air and seafood, and while I was there, I thought I’d check out the cool architecture of the new Parrish Art Museum, which happens to be the size of two soccer fields in length.

As my luck would have it, there just happen to be two enclosed auto transportation 18-wheeler big rigs parked in the lengthy driveway at the museum’s entrance. So I stopped in for a look, and lo and behold, I saw multiple gleaming red Ferraris stacked and ready for unloading. The guys of the Horseless Carriage Carriers, Inc. transportation company were super cool, and mentioned there was a super exclusive Ferrari event happening the next night on July 31st for an invitation-only private viewing. Well it wound up being held by Ferrari North America for the Ferrari LaFerrari American Premier and purchasers dinner for only 40 people of the new 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari hybrid supercar.

The Parrish Art Museum event manager – clearly not a car guy – was like “this is a private viewing”, and I was like ok – well I just got mine, but the event is not until tomorrow night, and there were only three people besides the guys unloading the cars, so I was like what’s the big deal, can I hang for a sec and take a look at the “new red paint,” meaning the new supercar. I was not there bothering anyone or there to take any pictures, I was out taking a ride and just happened to see something interesting out of the corner of my eye, so I stopped by. It seemed to be such a secret, like they were unloading the holy grail or something. If it wasn’t for me quickly mentioning to the transport crew to watch out, they would have ripped off the front fender lower air faring by almost hitting the side lip of the trailer ramp because no one – meaning the event managers – was not spotting them. That would have not been good if they damaged the supercar before the event. Timing is everything sometimes ;)

All I can say is that the LaFerrari is totally stunning especially in person! I was lucky enough to stand just 2′ feet away from it glistening in the late afternoon sunset, the corporate stock photos do not do this sleek design justice. The other design concepts, (F150) Manta and the Tensostrutturaare are just as sleek as the LaFerrari (F70). What a stunning designs by Flavio Manzoni Ferrari’s Design Chief and the team of other designers and engineers. My hats off to them – crazy sexy! I will take mine in black with some black rims of course.
