Simple, Easy and Precise
Glenn21, 08.05.2017
This is a great product. it is simple, light and portable and I would highly recommend it to any drum user who is looking to get a great sounding kick with better mic placement.

The reason I bought this product was to be able to put a mic on the inside of the kick drum to get a better sound. The Bass Drum O's Cutter is one of the best ways, in my opinion, to get a clean and perfect circle cut in the front bass and with the moveable pin, it is easy to measure how big of a hole you want to cut. if your not sure on what size to go for or where to cut it as every place will give you a different sound, what I did was tape a washable marker or chalk to the top and trace out a few around the skin till you find a size and place that you think is the best for your kick drum. also when cutting get a large flat piece of cardboard to place your the skin so you can put as much pressure as you like on it and not damage your floor or table.

This is also a good product if you are a sound technician and you are working with a less experienced drummers I find that keeping a Bass Drum O's Cutter in your tool box is very handy for time like if you are working with a drummer and his bass drum could do with a bit of fixing up and they let you fix their kit (don't just start cutting holes in other people's drums without asking it doesn't go down well) having a Bass Drum O's Cutter with you means your not running around trying to find anything that is able to solve your problem

To further improve the acoustic of your bass drum I recommend the t.akustik Kick Drum Absorber it is one of the best products I have ever bought.

The best
Lukaa, 14.01.2020
I used it for my DW kick drum and was amazed how easy it was to cut a hole in the head. At first i was a little bit scared that i will fail but it was simple and quick. I recommend it to everyone.

Nice neat cut
trickius, 28.05.2020
It did what is supposed to do. If you apply the needed pressure you get a nice round cut in the diameter you choose. Take care to put something underneath the bass drum head or you will leave a sign in the floor.

I shouldn't have left it so long
20.03.2015
Having had a bass drum front skin without a hole for several years and being too worried about messing up the hole to try cutting it. I finally decided to try, with the help of the Bass Drum O's Cutter and the matching 4" Black Round hole reinforcer.

I should have done this much sooner. This little gadget is so simple and works brilliantly. Just set the point to the correct radius (4" in my case), place the drum skin on some cardboard, press the point down and rotate the blade. A bit of pressure is all it takes and it is accurate enough that you can go back round again if any bits aren't quite cut all the way through. I was left with a circle of drum skin and a neatly cut hole.

Highly recommended!

A good useful tool for cutting a hole in your front bass drum skin. It's basically the only thing it does, so it would be sad if it didn't do it well.

Dont do my mistake
Henrik.wik, 12.08.2015
Great tool but...
Remember to put the drumhead on a solid surface when you cut. First time i used it i kept the drumhead on the bassdrum with a catastrophic result.

Bass Drum O's Cutter
Robert814, 29.01.2014
I did previously cut a hole using a scalpel and the "O". It was a tricky job and ended up with a slightly ragged edge to the hole. The "O" had a good double sided adhesive tape washer, so it covered the ragged edge, but I never want to have to do it that way again. This makes it as easy as drawing a circle with a compass. You get a nice circular hole with no mess and it is quick.

this is a great cheap device which will ensure a neatly cut hole for you to put your 'O-Ring' in to. Varying sizes give the item longevity and will remain in my tool box FOREVER!

Habirus, 15.01.2018
Bass drum port cutting went perfect. It also work great for cutting dampening rings out for toms and snare out of old head. Best recommendations. The only thing I miss is a case.

Just cuts O's
jmaffei, 23.07.2017
Does what it needs to do with no fuss. Place the head on a flat piece of card first though as it will scratch anything else underneath!

Have used this to cut through about 10 heads and its still sharpe. Perfect for the job, and a wide range of different sized holes can be used.
Well worth the money to get it done right with no damage.

I picked this up to fit my hole. This thing didn't seem to work for me. It cuts the hole very well but the directons on the package are not that good and the drum O would not cooperate AT ALL. I ended up trying to remove it to retry it and I finally used a scissor to cut out the hole. For me this thing doesn't work well at all.
