      The Dixson Lift looked a little pricey to me at first glance. But I spent the money and am I glad I did!The Lift is so easy to use it doesn't come w/instructions! I've been using it w/a GMS 18" SE BD. GMS bass drums usually sound bigger than their size in the first place, but the Dixson lift increased it's volume, resonance and depth by at least 25%. I'm playing the drum open, w/a coated PS3 batter and EQ1 reso. I 've played jazz gigs W/a Vater retro Bomber beater, and I'm able to play country, rock, singer-songwriter etc w/a Hard sided DW beater. Not miced. Amazing!I haven't tried it w/my 22' yet, butI'm looking forward to it. If you're thinking about buying this product, stop thinking, BUY IT!

      I purchased this lift thinking it would lift my 18" bass drum high enough for the beater to hit the center of the head. Not only will it not do that but the pedal and the drum are not mechanically attached so the bass drum moves away from the pedal.For me it was a total waste of money.

        Comments about Dixson Bass Drum Lift:

        So the reason i got the Arti Dixson bass drum lift is to be able to turn a 16x16 inch Yamaha stage custom floor tom into a Jazz bass drum to take around. I read all the reviews and people said they have used this product to turn a floor tom to Bass drum, so i ordered it. I then came across the problem that its a little to short in height. My beater will strike the drum an inch or 2 above the center, which makes it less punchy. This product would be absolutely perfect for Floor tom to bass drum conversion if it was about 3-4 inchs taller. But other than that its perfect. just going to have to duct tape towels to make it taller!

              The bass drum lift is exactly what I hoped it would be. I wasn't sure it would work to turn a 16x16 floor tom into a kick, but it does the job very well.

                  Comments about Dixson Bass Drum Lift:

                  I use this to lift my 20" kick, and it works perfectly. I use a DW 5000 single pedal, and I didn't have to make any sort of adjustments. Just attach it, slide the lift under my kick drum, and play.

                  The only cons I can come up with are that, it can be harder to line your pedal up just right, initially, and that it can make your kick drum unstable if you mount something heavy like a ride cymbal to it. I always used to mount one rack tom and a ride cymbal to my kick drum. While I haven't had it tip since using the bass drum lift, I stopped mounting my ride from my kick, just in case.

                      Yes, but do your homework first.

                      Comments about Dixson Bass Drum Lift:

                      Do your homework. Make sure your pedal will work. My Ludwig Speed King and my Gibraltar both are very, very close to the wood rim at the same time the beater hits the head, which worries me. I am limited to using only the Yamaha pedal which works perfectly as long as I use the spacing material on the clamping lip. The sound on my 18" bass drum improves dramatically, especially when I play on carpet which normally sucks the sound out of the bass. This is a keeper. My little bass is now a cannon.
                      The build quality is excellent but the design isn't. The attachment lip for the bass drum is too thin. I had to add spacing material to thicken it up for my Yamaha pedal so it would clamp all the way. The surface the bass drum shell sits on is high quality curved rubber which won't mark the shell and there is even an extra spacer for that if you need to lift your drum an extra 1/4 inch.
                      Quality is excellent. The product itself will not mark your drum.
                      It will last a lifetime. Very durable.

                      for a while i considered making a bass drum cradle for my 16" floor tom and after designing and pricing out the materials and fiquering the time and work involved came accross the dixon bass drum lift. it is smaller, lighter and cheaper than anything i could make. it works perfectly. i took the spurs off a bass drum, inserted them in the tom brackets and a shell mount cymbal holder arm in the other bracket and i'm pleasedwith the results.

                      Comments about Dixson Bass Drum Lift:

                      I've been using this lift for sometime now with a Gretch jazz kit w/ 18" kick (purchased from MF, of course). It's worked great. Compared to the lift that came with the kit, it's a definite improvment, especially with flexiblity in placement of my pedal (i.e. no more over-extension in motion when kicking, which happened with the included kit bass drum lift).

                      My only complaint, and it's minor, is some tipping of the kit happens with this lift from time to time. It might be the kit (it's very light weight, and the 1 rack tom could make it off balance), or I just don't have the lift placed just right. I've tweaked the lift placement quite a bit, and still haven't found to where I can avoid the tipping. It's a very small contact area between the kick and lift, so maybe that ,along with the weight, is the issue. But, it's not a deal killer...the Dixson bass lift is definitely worth it.

                      Comments about Dixson Bass Drum Lift:

                      The idea for the product is good. The problem I am having with it is, if I place the lift so that the pedal is where it would normally be in relation to the drum head, my pedal hits the hoop when the pedal is pressed down. If I back it off so that the pedal doesn't hit the hoop, then the beater is too far away from the head when the pedal is pressed down. I may need to adjust my pedal in some way, but I was hoping to be able to just attach the pedal to the Dixon lift and go and it is not that simple.
