Re: Product review: Axis Sonic Hammer (bass drum beater)
the Thery behind the sonic hammer makes sense. its to prevent the pedal going past 90 degrees. with the proper spring tension and settings you can get em to hit pretty hard. on that note.. i switched to my wood beaters and its MUCH harder hitting. I used to add small beater weights even to get louder hits....... a regular axis al-2 can hit VERY hard at the right settings.
and also.... you don't need to hit light to trigger.. I hear stuff like this all the time and it makes me laugh. when people don't understand triggers they just picture a drummer playing very fast tapping super light..... i have the sensitivity quite low when i use triggers . this way i get to lay into my kick.. can hit nice and hard, I love the sound of a triggered kick playing deathmetal as it really cuts threw the mix
