These are nice beaters. Picked up 2 to replace my ageing felt beaters. Use them with a double pedal on my Roland V-drums with mesh heads. They work good , but they are NOT so lightweight. They'd be great on acoustic kits , especially with the plastic side beater.

Don't buy these.

There are honestly the worst beaters I've ever used, and these aren't lightweight, they're around average weight. Just save up and buy some detanators ( some of the best beaters ever - #1...Read complete review

There are honestly the worst beaters I've ever used, and these aren't lightweight, they're around average weight. Just save up and buy some detanators ( some of the best beaters ever - #1 in my opinion ) or some Tama Wood Beaters.

        Comments about Gibraltar Lightweight Drum Beater:

        I got this as a cheap way to have a felt beater for the 18" bass drum on my new jazz set. Its OK for this. But it is so lightweight, it would be useless on my DW rock.

          If you want an extra punch and eliminate a little of that big fat resonance, this beater helps you get the sound of the drumhead.

                  Replaced my Pacific Concept beaters on my double pedal. These are much lighter and faster. Very pleased with the speed I'm getting vs. the PDP beaters. Would definately reccomend.

                  These are NOT lightweight beaters. They weigh EXACTLY the same as the Tama Iron Cobra beaters with NONE of the features or functionality.

                  Comments about Gibraltar Lightweight Drum Beater:

                  This beater is indeed light weight compared to the one on my PDP402 double bass pedal(its like a DW beater) I just got this today (5/8/09) and I put it on my pedal, its a blast, it has a nice rich,deep bass drum sound. I recommend you use the felt side. This beater is AWESOME! I would recommend this beater to any one who wants a lighter beater, or just a new one. Great job Gibraltar!

                  Lightweight?

                  Comments about Gibraltar Lightweight Drum Beater:

                  These are not lightweight beaters, there was no difference from my old beaters. The felt side is really nice and the plastic side is ok. I use the plastic side because the felt side produces a muffled sound with my Remo Falam Slam Pads. Overall these are good beaters if you need new ones.
