Default Re: Experience with Felt Beaters

Yeah, I use the DD beaters. For the "boomy" sound you're after I think the old style white felt beaters will probably offer an even better alternative.

Whilst the DD beaters are certainly a hell of a lot lighter than the quad beaters and will get you closer to the sound you're chasing, they still offer a relatively focused attack.....probably due to the design of the core and the fact that hey are also smaller and a little harder than the old style felt beaters. You'll certainly notice a diff. between them and the quads, but I reckon the others might just give you a little more of that boom, again.

And of course, don't neglect to play around with the tuning either. That'll certainly help too.
