The KickPort's design enhances the sound of your kick drum by porting the kick drum in the same manner as a bass reflex speaker cabinet, which boosts low frequencies. It adds ideal dampening directly to the resonant head, which allows you to remove most-if not all-of the internal materials, thus reclaiming all of the natural resonance and tone of your drum. The KickPort bass drum enhancement also focuses the air as it exits the kick drum, creating a natural compression that increases punch.

As if that wasn't enough, it's tunable! Due to its broadband design, the KickPort bass drum enhancement improves the sound of bass drums sized 16" to 28." It can be tuned up or down by adjusting the tuning of the resonant head.

All of these benefits add up to more lows, more tone, better definition, and more punch in varying acoustical environments. Make no mistake, it's not just for the audience or the sound engineer-these are benefits the drummer can feel behind the drum set as well.

All right, I have been holding off on buying this Kickport for a long time because of the cost. Sure it looks nice but its just a hole right. Wrong, it really does what it claims. I play double bass and have two bass drums so just putting a hole in each one was really tempting. This added quite a bit to the cost of two new batter heads and two new resonant heads but WOW!!! I got the new heads both batter and resonant and the Kickports in chrome. First I put the heads on and tuned them. Everything sounded good. So then I cut the recommended size holes and tried the kicks again without the kickports installed. I found I had to tune again and the sound didn't change much. Then I installed the Kickports and tried the kicks again and WOW! I should have done this a long time ago!!! Best money I ever spent on my drums! More focused low end and the kit I play on is not a real high end kit, just average. Now, in the instructions they recommend that when you mic them not to put the mic inside the kick but to place the mic 1 to 2 inches outside the kickport and a little off axis so the burst of wind that comes out doesn't affect the mic. I think that will be hard to convince sound men to do. We will just have to wait and see. All in all I like them and I feel it was worth the cash.

I bought this under the assumption that this product makes the bass drum sound better. Supposedly, it's suppose to give the bass drum a better quality sound while providing a better punch (reviews and description), but that is all incorrect. Do not purchase this product if that is what you're after. This is merely a piece of tube plastic that helps direct the air forced by the striking of the beater. In no way, shape or form does it change the tonality of the drum regardless of what they tell you. So if you already have a port hole in your bass head, this product is useless. The port hole you've already cut does the same job as this product...except it's free.

      The instructions have you installing completely from the outside of the drum (Not so easy). Take the other head off...DUHHHHH! Soooooo much easier. Love the look, only heard it from the back.

          Pretty easy to install. Immediately heard a difference. I don't need my old blanket in the bass drum any more. My band noticed that my bass drum sounded punchier and bigger. I get compliments on my sound all the time. I have a KickPort on all of my kits now. Sounds great without a mic, sounds fantastic with a mic in the studio. Way better than just a hole!

              I almost didn't want to rave about it publicly because I don't want too many people to know my secret. But it's pretty far from a secret at this point. This invention seems to improve the sound of not just the bass drum, but every drum. I've got a low end frequency happening now that wasn't there before, no matter how perfectly tuned. This product should be a part of every set.

                Comments about Kickport Bass Drum Sound Enhancer:

                Ordered this for my new Gretsch Catalina Maple kit. Didn't want to cut a hole in my factory reso head, so the fact that this came with a free Evans EQ3 reso head was awesome because I could keep the factory and have it when I wanted it. I was surprised that the head and Kickport combo increased the overall volume, added some punch and attack, and only gave up a little resonance. Sounded really good through the PA. Well worth the price
