Default Re: Adjustable bass drum beaters

OK the Tama beaters...good idea to have the hammer angle adjustable. But if the shaft still has to go past 12:00, it's still not good enough for me. Unless I'm missing something. Also, I'm not looking to replicate the feel of the DW beater, I'm actually looking to lighten my load.

So the 3 criteria that must all be met for me to be satisfied... 90 degree head, 90 degree hammer strike angle, and the beater shaft not going past 12:00. Does the Tama beater do all that? I think it will fail on the beater shaft angle. The Sonic hammer has all that covered it seems. I appreciate your help Henri. But I believe I need all 3 of those things to have a truly satisfying foot pedal experience.
Sucking all the fun right out of life....
