Or...who makes the best kick strap device?
There's like a bunch of 'em

where did you see it lifting the bass pedal? I believe you, I just didnt see that in any of the videos for it.It looks like an insurance device when there is nothing else, not a rug replacement entirely. Never used it, but I don't like how it lifts your bass drum pedal due to the tension on the strap. But I should still get one just have one in the bag for only $20-30, could save a song.
I guess this is for when you dont want to lug around a rug.
Agreed, the rug that I use was in our basement on the floor, 6X5" and it works perfectly And I still can use it for something else.A rug doesn't just keep your drums from moving around. It also protects the floor underneath you. Venues will appreciate the effort.
You don't need a huge rug. A small Traffic Master 4x3 rug in a diamond position under the the kit - under the kick, throne and hi-hat - is enough. Or the 5x6 version set square if you want to visually claim more area with the rug.
Either size will roll up very tight, can be secured with a couple of bungee cords, or a wide strip of velcro, and left in the back of your car.
Bonus... the rugs can be used for other things. Not just your drums. The Kick Strap... not so much.
Well, maybe I wanna go rock climbing after the gig. Ever think of that?Bonus... the rugs can be used for other things. Not just your drums. The Kick Strap... not so much.
ah ok i missed it the first time. Sorry I'm a bit slow.
dang this would be perfect for me if it was just a little bigger. I'm gonna be using a regular old house throw rug for the time being, and I think it'll work but yeah i love the weights and built-in stopper thing.I recently got the Zildjian gig drum rug which is their smallest version. I haven't given it a spin yet but I like it already. It has weighted corners, a bass drum stopper and folds very small in a pouch for travel which is something I can't say for other home remedy solutions which all were bulky and filthy. So a bit pricier than normal but thought it was worth it. I'd still consider the kick strap, not every place is rug friendly. But seems there are alot of other drum rug brands but I liked the idea of the bass drum stopper built in, that is the main concern.
They have the bigger one, but no bass drum stop and twice the pricedang this would be perfect for me if it was just a little bigger. I'm gonna be using a regular old house throw rug for the time being, and I think it'll work but yeah i love the weights and built-in stopper thing.
interesting. How'd they get Bob Odenkirk to do the voice-over? I didn't even know he did that.I really like these ideas from Gecko using structure and Van Der Waals forces. I want to try Geckskin and strategically place to hold. Maybe take a piece of carpet cut to smallest footprint for kick and hats and back with this product?
Man, that must be very dangerous if you're in the dark on a stage and you've forgotten about the damn kickstrap!!! It should be reflective color made. It's a matter of time before someone gets hurt by getting their foot caught at the beginning or end of a gig.
