        Kickport

        Want more kick for your kick? Try the 2009 Summer NAMM's Best in Show.

        The KickPort's design enhances the sound of your kick drum by porting the kick drum in the same manner as a bass reflex speaker cabinet, which boosts low frequencies. It adds ideal dampening directly to the resonant head, which allows you to remove most—if not all—of the internal materials, thus reclaiming all of the natural resonance and tone of your drum. The KickPort bass drum enhancement also focuses the air as it exits the kick drum, creating a natural compression that increases punch.

        As if that wasn't enough, it's tunable! Due to its broadband design, the KickPort bass drum enhancement improves the sound of bass drums sized 16" to 28." It can be tuned up or down by adjusting the tuning of the resonant head.

        All of these benefits add up to more lows, more tone, better definition, and more punch in varying acoustical environments. Make no mistake, it's not just for the audience or the sound engineer—these are benefits the drummer can feel behind the drum set as well.

        Features

        • Fits kick drums sized 16"-28"
        • 4" diameter opening

        More low end, more tone, more punch, and more feel! Order today.

          If you're looking to enhance the natural sound and feel of your kick drum without killing it by stuffing pillows and blankets into it, Kickport has your solution!

          These babies smooth out the frequencies that can cause us to feel the need for muffling our drums while boosting the lower frequencies of your kick drum that allow you to feel the thump, and experience the warmth, tone, focus and attack of your drum. It's like installing a magic subwoofer into your kick drum. The Kickports are super easy to install too!

          I put this on a 22 emad batter, rite away it sounded great, nice and punchy,also saved my head from being damaged from people trippin on mic cords n tearing the head. a few months later it started to vibrate on the head, i stuffed underneath the rubber with foam, and this still gave my kick the "kickfart", seriously what it sounded like, I couldnt even remove it without a chance of damaging my head, so i had cut the rubber off completely, Im thinkin im just gona get that plastic in a can and spray around the hole. dont buy the kickfart

                Comments about Kickport Bass Drum Sonic Enhancement Port:

                I've had my kickport for almost 6 months. When I first installed it onto my 18" kick, I immediately noticed my kick had a tighter and better tone acoustically. The Kickport really comes alive during live performances with a mic'd kit. IT IS IMPORTANT TO PLACE THE KICK MIC CORRECTLY!!! Make sure the mic is not in the the hole, but rather, on the outside of it so it can capture the sound coming out of the Kickport. My 18" kick sounded like a MONSTER! I have a 24" kick that sounded smaller than the 18". The Kickport is a must have for any drummer who is looking to enhance the sound of their kick.

                  KickPort adds the power I want from my bass dum. My 24" Pearl Reference bass sounds incredible with my chrome KickPort! I use it on all of my recordings and live gigs!

                    Comments about Kickport Bass Drum Sonic Enhancement Port:

                    I used to think these were another one of those gimmick products that do more for the aesthetics than the actual sound, itself. I was very wrong. I finally broke down and bought one to try it out, because I heard everybody raving about them. I am a believer. I can't own a kit without one of these anymore. It punches you right in the gut. I just got a new kit, and the first thing I did after I got it home was got a KickPort and installed it the next day. I have a 22" kick, and with the Kickport, and the plastic side of the beater, I get the deep, low end of a felt beater, but the attack and clarity of the plastic beater. I also have a 20" inch kick drum, and with a KickPort, it can stand up against 22" kick drums, any day. Great product. If you're considering getting one, do it. You'll be happy you did.

                    Here's a quick tip: For a cleaner look, install the reinforcement ring on the inside of the head.

                    Comments about Kickport Bass Drum Sonic Enhancement Port:

                    I'm very satisfied with the results. It provides a distinctive lower frequency boom or full round tone that my 22" bass drum lacked. I thought I needed a 24" for a bigger sound but I'll be contented with the 22" now. And it's not as boomy as a 24". It's not too boomy.
                    A new beater head improved the attack and now I'll add a pillow to provide that additional kind of feel and sound,or pillowy effect. It should be about perfect then.
