Default Re: Adjustable bass drum beaters

I'm doing it from an efficient standpoint first (less fatigue) and a head standpoint 2nd. You want that hammer parallel to the head when it strikes for maximum head life, and I think an added benefit would be the best tone. I already ordered some, and I will post my results. I've been using a 5000 for 10 years straight at the gigs, with the stock DW beater, so there ya go. I do have a 9000 at home. A lighter hammer would probably be enough right there to eliminate fatigue, but I want to go all the way with it and rethink all of the factors.
The best way to do art, is to dispense with good and bad...and just get on with it.
