Default 16" bass drum lift/riser

We just cobbled together a jungle kit for my friends kids. Check out the welded aluminum BD riser - bolted from inside the drum into the threaded riser. We still have to add velcro to the underside of the riser and some rubber gaskets between the drum and the riser.

It puts the beater right in the center (or off-center if you prefer) of the head. Lifts are pretty typical on smaller bass drums 16" to 18". I don't lift my 18" BD but some people do. And this being 16" it would have put the beater to close to the edge. This one was made by a buddy of mine.

I C.... so instead of having to shorten the beater post length and sacrifice leverage/power you bring the drum up! Simple... yet.... Smart lol
thx Big Foot
