Faultless

Ed C, 30.01.2015
I adore the VKB series of bass drum beaters and use either the 1/2/3 models almost exclusively now. The shape of the 1/2 is great - the rounded edge is very consistent and the flat face provides noticeably more "oomph"! They're also very nicely weighted - I've no complaints there. They're great beaters.

The felt VKB1 is my "go-to" beater now for most genres (unless I need more definition when I'll use the maple VKB2, or trad. jazz when I use the fleeced VKB3). It creates a gorgeous, warm sound and when I've used it on other bass drums which people have had various pedals/beaters on, they've all commented on how much they like the tone it gives. I've used it for a number of months now and it's still very solid. The rounded edge is starting to lose it's shape slightly, flattening out from where it strikes the drum, but it's nothing drastic and it's what I would expect after months of playing. It's still as solid as it was on day 1 though.

Overall, this series of beaters is faultless - buy with confidence!

Great all purpose beater

Brendan M., 13.08.2018
I find some mixed beaters with plastic on side and felt on another, the felt sometimes gets worn and I'm always worried about the corner of the plastic side ripping a skin in the middle of a gig. Bought this as it's felt all round. There's no pointless novelty, just versatile beater!
