For that great vintage jazz bass drum sound!

The Vater Vintage Bomber Bass Drum Beater was designed in collaboration with Otis Brown III, drummer for jazz great Joe Lovano. The Vintage Bomber was conceived and designed to replicate the soft but boomy bass drum tones of the great jazz era. The Vintage Bomber's cork center is wrapped with a soft and puffy synthetic covering and is reminiscent in look, feel, and sound of the original lamb's wool beaters from decades ago.

  • B-boom

    As reviewed by Mark on 3/18/2010

    Bought one of these to try on the kick head of a 16 inch cocktail drum. The sound is quieter, more muted, but still with a defined "boom" to it. It really does give that 'vintage jazz recording' sound to your bass drum. Great for lower-volume settings. Even though the beater head looks really large, it is not heavier than a normal beater, so it feels very similar on the pedal.

  • BOOM!

    As reviewed by Christian Wells on 1/30/2012

    Changes the sound a whole bunch compared to your run-of-the-mill beater. The nly downside is that you will notice quite a bit of rebound lost compared to a harder beater.
