    Comments about KAT Percussion Silent Strike Bass Drum Beater:

    At first I loved this product. After a few weeks, I noticed it was wearing into my bass trigger (Yamaha KP65). Solved the problem with some Gorilla Tape on the trigger pad. Now, the tennis ball is completely falling apart. If you have a heavy foot or practice a lot of quick bass, beware. This beater can tear into your trigger, and can disintegrate.

    Comments about KAT Percussion Silent Strike Bass Drum Beater:

    This is a must have if you own any electric drums models. I personally use the Pearl EPro and prior to me using it my kick drum pad was getting indented by my DB 9000 kick OG batter. I am a heavy hitter and if you are and own electric drum it will save money in the long run! The only draw back so far is the black mark it leaves; however, I would prefer a black any day over the batter head cutting through my drum pad.

        Comments about KAT Percussion Silent Strike Bass Drum Beater:

        I have two of these on a double bass pedal and a yamaha rubber kick pad. These are not silent but are much quieter than normal rubber side of standard beater. I little expensive but if you want to jam while the kids are sleeping in the next room these come in handy.

              Using my Alesis DM8 with a Yamaha beater made a crack every time it hit, that was way too loud in my open back phones. This beater stops the hit noise and has a great soft feel so you can control the volume much better. Excellent!

              Great beater, but shaft is too big for my Tama foot pedal.

                    I wish someone invented this product before I wore out a spot in my bass drum pad (Yamaha digital kit) due to using standard hard felt beaters. By using this product, I did not notice any change in pedal response or over all sound.
