An easy way to make a small bass drum sound huge ...

... try the Danmar Zorro bass drum beater! I bought one on a whim and can’t believe what it’s done to my 18” bass drum. (I have been using a felt iron cobra beater with an Iron Cobra.) The sound is massive - dense with a huge thump - especially from the player’s side. I’ve developed quite a heavy foot over the years because I’ve always seemed to want more bass drum in my mix, but now I’m really having to back off which feels great and is helping my technique. With this, my IC beater and a Vater Bomber, one tuning can do a lot of different things.
