This beater, like the regular felt version, is a medium-heavy beater with one surface. I've used the felt version for years before getting this, and honestly? I prefer the felts feeling more. Not to say this is a bad beater, it isn't. It justs makes the rebound feel unnatural, especially if you have a direct drive pedal. No real downsides except subjective ones really, i feel like it's a good buy if you don't mind the rebound changing a bit. The sound produced by the wood surface is clicky, punchy and hits closer to the mid freqs instead of the lower ones like the felt does.
All in all, a good beater! Test it out before you buy it though.
I play with Tama Speed Cobra double pedals, the standard beaters that come with the pedals are soft felt ones. I wanted to get more attack from my bass drums and more punch.
These beaters are really great for providing that extra bit of attack, especially when playing rock or metal without compromising on a big beefy sound.
It does not quite give you the 'click' sound that you hear on metal records, (no beater will) but it definitely gives a small element of it. I recorded with these beaters and tried both my felt and wooden with the wooden ones sounding much much better. Excellent beaters, I highly recommend them!
