Default Re: Product review: Axis Sonic Hammer (bass drum beater)

I listened to the recording of one and a half sets I played with the SH and it sounded like the drummer (me) didn't play the bass drum with the proper authority. Which has NEVER been an issue on any of my previous recordings. The last half of the night, according to the recording clearly had the bass drum tone I am used to hearing. The lighter hammer makes for a wimpier tone. It was too easy, not in a way I liked, and I had a hard time adjusting. Hey miced up, there's no issue, but I'm never miced, basically speaking. So I need a heavier beater for the punch.
The best way to do art, is to dispense with good and bad...and just get on with it.
