OVERVIEW

A simple kick drum head implement to expand the low-end range of your bass drum.

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.


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

    Comments about Kickport Bass Drum Sound Enhancer:

    Pretty easy to install. Immediately heard a difference. I don't need my old blanket in the bass drum any more. My band noticed that my bass drum sounded punchier and bigger. I get compliments on my sound all the time. I have a KickPort on all of my kits now. Sounds great without a mic, sounds fantastic with a mic in the studio. Way better than just a hole!

        Comments about Kickport Bass Drum Sound Enhancer:

        I almost didn't want to rave about it publicly because I don't want too many people to know my secret. But it's pretty far from a secret at this point. This invention seems to improve the sound of not just the bass drum, but every drum. I've got a low end frequency happening now that wasn't there before, no matter how perfectly tuned. This product should be a part of every set.

          Comments about Kickport Bass Drum Sound Enhancer:

          Ordered this for my new Gretsch Catalina Maple kit. Didn't want to cut a hole in my factory reso head, so the fact that this came with a free Evans EQ3 reso head was awesome because I could keep the factory and have it when I wanted it. I was surprised that the head and Kickport combo increased the overall volume, added some punch and attack, and only gave up a little resonance. Sounded really good through the PA. Well worth the price

              I've been using these on my bass drums since I was in High School and they make such a difference in bass drum tone. Pop one of these babies in your bass drum and it'll bring out all the punch that the drum has to offer while retaining all the warmth and character of the drum. Super easy to install and adjust and it makes sound engineers lives a lot easier. Do yourself a favor and pick one up, you won't regret it!

                  Comments about Kickport Bass Drum Sound Enhancer:

                  All right, I have been holding off on buying this Kickport for a long time because of the cost. Sure it looks nice but its just a hole right. Wrong, it really does what it claims. I play double bass and have two bass drums so just putting a hole in each one was really tempting. This added quite a bit to the cost of two new batter heads and two new resonant heads but WOW!!! I got the new heads both batter and resonant and the Kickports in chrome. First I put the heads on and tuned them. Everything sounded good. So then I cut the recommended size holes and tried the kicks again without the kickports installed. I found I had to tune again and the sound didn't change much. Then I installed the Kickports and tried the kicks again and WOW! I should have done this a long time ago!!! Best money I ever spent on my drums! More focused low end and the kit I play on is not a real high end kit, just average. Now, in the instructions they recommend that when you mic them not to put the mic inside the kick but to place the mic 1 to 2 inches outside the kickport and a little off axis so the burst of wind that comes out doesn't affect the mic. I think that will be hard to convince sound men to do. We will just have to wait and see. All in all I like them and I feel it was worth the cash.

                      Lets face it, the only slight drawback in the product is cutting the hole.It's never an easy task... but Kickport includes an outer ring that applies to the head,and giving you a perfect stencil. The new tone coming out of all my drums is throaty and no ring. I use Aquarian Studio X Heads on an Argent Drumset.It sounds better than most high end sets now. Not only would I recommend this, I would buy this for you if I could.

                      Cool bass drum accessory product that adds some well balanced oomph to your kick drum. Install was kind of a hassle even after watching a YouTube video. Wound up taking the front head off and put the thing on right away. Might not be the best technique for everyone, but it worked for me. If you're looking for some decent low-end sound enhancement give it a go.

                        Kickports are great...what can you say?! They improve the sound of my bass drum. Much deeper robust tone is achieved when using them.

                          Not a massive change. Subtle but noticable. Only product of it's kind that I've found that works. I used it for a New Years Eve gig and loved it. Haven't heard it yet on a recording but looking forward to improved lows.
