Practicing drums quietly is always a challenge, and getting a quieter bass drum sound is one of the toughest problems to overcome. A mesh head or mute pad are some common options, but changing the head is time-consuming, and both lack a natural and accurate feel. This hinders the ability to make any real progress with footwork. To solve this issue, we have developed the Soft Sound Beater. A quieter bass drum is now as simple as switching the beater on your pedal. It provides a significant decrease in volume, but allows you to use your regular bass drum pedal and bass drum head. In addition to practice, it’s also useful for low volume gigs and applications.
