Re: Product review: Axis Sonic Hammer (bass drum beater)
Larry, uou're playing unmic'd, need a loud sound, play with a heavy, powerful stroke, while playing fast shuffles heel-down? No wonder your shin hurts! Your leg is heavier than your foot and your thigh is stronger than your shin, so you have a lot of untapped power in your leg. Mix in some heel-up and some heel-toe into your technique and that might help with your shin.
Have you tried wood beaters as well? Probably harder on your heads, but might give you more thump than felt...
