Well-made and well-balanced beater for the Jojo Mayer pedal that can also be used with other pedals.
Despite being classified as an old-school type beater, it's versatility can surpass newer-school type beaters with flatter and alternate material striking surfaces.
The medium density and rounded shape felt provides good articulation with a warm tone as well as excellent response for those foot techniques that leverage head rebound rather than pedal rebound.
The overall quality of the felt, chrome, locking nut, etc. is on par with (and even surpassing some) other higher-end beaters costing more than $14 USD.
One very minute suggestion to Sonor for improvement would be to use stainless steel washers to minimize long-term oxidation and staining of the felt (happened to my original beater). Otherwise, great product at a great price.
