      Comments about Gibraltar SC-3261 Bass Drum Batter:

      I found this bass beater best suited for a church Praise team group where a solid but not heavy handed sound is needed. This beater is perfect for that. At first I bought it because that was what was previously on the Stage Custom Yamaha bass. But now I'm glad I got it for the enhancement of the music, not the destruction of it.

        Comments about Gibraltar SC-3261 Bass Drum Batter:

        Gibraltar has never let me down, and this beater is no exception. I bought it to replace the original beater on my pedal (my dog ate it...long story) and I like it even better than the original, mainly because it's round felt, and the original was plastic/felt two-sided. I'm an old drummer (65) and I like the sound of the old style better than the new. Hey, if it was good enough for the likes of Ringo and Levon...:)

          Comments about Gibraltar SC-3261 Bass Drum Batter:

          This went right onto my Speed King pedal in place of the original beater, no problem. Installed in about 3 seconds.
          Felt is dense and hard; harder that I expected, and that's good. Sounds fine; a nice, loud, sharp 'thump'; I expect this beater to last a long time.

              Rick solid beater. Used it for the first time this weekend at a gig. Love it. Better sound, didn't effect my pedal response.

                      Got these to replace my old Ludwig beaters from the 70's. They look, sound, and fit great.

                            Every drummer should have felt beaters if you play the instrument.

                              I had a problem with my hard surfaced beater sticking to my bass head as heat from friction built up during use. Most may think it's a problem with the pedal but being a Forensic DSI I deduced the sticking was caused by heat and friction. I purchased this beater and problem solved. No more sticking and sound quality is just as good as before. So, who would have thought that Forensic Medicine could solve a drumming problem.? Well worth the price, Good quality construction.
