Some people would think that bass drum beaters are all the same, or that the differences don't matter... and those people would be mistaken! If you're an experienced percussionist, then you'll already know that for a fact, but if you're a beginner, take this as a lesson: the bass drum beater you choose can actually have a huge impact not only on your kick drum's sound, but even on how it feels to stomp on that pedal. It's not unusual for a drummer to own a whole collection of these pedal-mounted drum mallets - partly to have spares on hand for your go-to model, and partly because with a simple swap of your beater, you can turn your bass drum into an entirely different animal. One step at a time, though - let's start with a look at some of the "standard" bass drum beaters. They come in two general styles: mallets, like the Gibraltar SC-3262 Solid Wood Bass Drum Beater or the Trick Drums Dominator Beater, and hammers such as the Gibraltar Lightweight Drum Beater or the Axis Sonic Hammer Variable Length Bass Drum Beater. No matter which of these two beater types works best for you, you've got plenty of head materials to choose from. Those with harder tips, like wooden beaters, will give your kick drum a sharp, loud note while softer ones - the Vater Vintage Bomber Bass Drum Beater, for instance - turn out a deeper, more rounded sound. When it comes to exotic bass drum beaters, there are some interesting choices from SideKick Drums, like the Drum Stick Beater, Bundle Stick Beater and Brush Beater. A simple look at each of these will give you an idea of the acoustic character it will deliver, and together they open up all kinds of creative possibilities. For example, you could mount one opposite a traditional beater on a double pedal setup for a unique effect. Or, you could even mount a snare or tom on its side and use a pedal to strike it, almost like having a third hand! The best part about playing percussion is that there are zero limits when it comes to customization. You're free to lay out your drum kit the way you want, and that naturally includes having free reign over your bass drum beaters and how you choose to integrate them. So don't hold back - let your imagination go wild and think about all the sounds and effects you'd love to try! Then, all that's left to do is to pick out the best bass drum beaters to make them a reality.
