Bass Drum Hack: Getting Rid of that "Basketbally" Tone

We only share drum hacks when they’re truly legitimate and solve a real problem without introducing a series of others. This drum hack may be one of our favorites yet. If you’ve ever recorded a bass drum before (or seriously geeked out about the sound of a bass drum from a perspective beyond the drum throne), theres a strong chance you’ve encountered what many describe as a “basketbally sound” (though we’ve heard dodgeball referenced too). While there are a number of factors that contribute to the phenomenon, this seems to be the most impactful, immediate solution. ⁣⁣
