Vater VBLRB Bass Drum Beater "Long Range Vintage Bomber", Same as the Vintage Bomber but with a longer shaft for larger bass drums. The Vintage Bomber was designed in collaboration with Otis Brown III, drummer for Jazz Great Joe Lovano. The Vintage Bomber was conceived and designed to replicate the soft but boomy bass drum tones of the great jazz era. The Vintage Bomber's cork center is wrapped with a soft and puffy synthetic covering and is reminiscent in look, feel and sound to the original lamb's wool beaters from decades ago.

This beater is the BOMB
I remember the day I received this beater. It was a day that changed everything.
I have to mention that I have a 22'' bass drum - so I had to cut this elongated beater holder down. The "normal" size was out of stock at that point. I have an Evans Emad single ply batter head on my bass drum.
If you playing your standard wood, plastic or hard felt beaters, the bass drum ideally sounds and feels like a punch in the chest. With this beater its more like a thump somewhere in the lower abdomen. Not with a fist, but with the whole palm. Its strong. Its round. It's overwhelming, and you feel it all throughout your body. It feels like home, it feels smooth and sexy. It's simply amazing.
The attack and definition of the bass drum hits goes down when using the bomber, of course, but I feel that would only be a problem for metal or those crazy gospel licks - double strokes are still nicely distinguishable and you just can't ignore the absolutely fantastic sound.
