The design of the Marshmallow bass drum beater stemmed from the desire to create a vintage-style beater that wasn’t overly dead sounding or feeling. We wanted it to have articulation while maintaining that vintage sound.
NOW AVAILABLE IN 2 SIZE OPTIONS
The Standard Marshmallow is a little lighter than an average beater. The biggest thing drummers have noticed about the Standard Marshmallow, compared to other vintage-style beaters, is that you can actually play defined doubles with it, hence the articulation we were looking for.
The XL Marshmallow has a little more "beef" to it and weighs about the same as an average beater. Because of its size, it is a little slower than the Standard Marshmallow.
Don’t let their fluffy appearances deceive you; the depth of sound you’ll get from these beaters will surprise you!
Unlike vintage style beaters that are fleece wrapped around a solid core, these beaters are 100% wool to the core. They have a super soft feel which is perfect for that vintage sound. They are great for cajons too!
