Anyone tried the VKB5 beater?


I've been trying one out, and so far I like it. (I also liked the stock Yamaha beater that came with my pedal - a 9500C)

It feels well balanced and pretty fast. The tone seems slightly more pointed than the stock beater.

It's a subtle difference - it didn't really take much to get used to it. (Which is a good thing, IMO.)

I've seen this beater, and I like it - from a design perspective. I too would like to learn more about these beaters from those who have used them.
