We were looking for something made of a different type of material that would also stand the test of time!
As someone who grew up with skateboards and knew the abuse I inflicted, the skateboard wheel was an obvious choice of material. After lots of research, we found the right weight, size and feel to create the Creative Percussion Skateboard Wheel bass drum beater! …not to mention, they look amazing!!!
Made from urethane rubber, these are the heaviest beaters we offer. Cut into our signature "D" shape and set on a center hub, you will be able to rotate the beater on the center hub to manually set the angle where it will stay and strike flat on the head. This will give you more surface contact which equals more attack and punch. You can also use the rounded side for less attack, if you desire.
These beaters pack a thump with medium attack!
Due to the extended time needed to fabricate, these beaters must be ordered as a set of 2.
Available in transparent and opaque colors.
Beater Head: 2” dia x 1 1/4” wide
Shaft: 17/4ph stainless steel
Overall Length: Including shaft is 8 3/8".
Weight: 4.2 oz (about 1 oz heavier than the average beater)
