Better than Stock Tamas

What would make this product better is if it offered a flat striking surface. Other than that, the balance, feel and felxability of the beater made this purchase valuable to me.

What would make this product better is if it offered a flat striking surface. Other than that, the balance, feel and felxability of the beater made this purchase valuable to me.

I recomend this.
Like previous reviewers have stated. Therse beaters are round on all sides just shifted 90 degres on two of the striking patterns. The picture is misleading. On that note you do get 4 options for beater oreintation which is nice.
The reason I bought these is for flexability. I wanted to try a plastic beater, but also want to be able to fall back to the felt beater if I didnt like the sound. As it turns out I like the plastic sound, so that is what I am using.

Addittionally, I wanted a better balanced beater. I have always hated the stock beater that came with the IRON COBRA pedals. These pearl beaters have way better balance and response.
I dont understand why beaters are so expensive, but compared to the compitition at least with this one you have 4 striking options.

Not impressed

Not enough surface contact to head. Beater head is bulky. Photo of 4 sided beater is misleading. Not impressed.

I use this beater because it is the only practical one for my use... I only really ever use the felt side but I know when it wears down a hard drummer would love to have them...

    Comments about Pearl B200QB 4 Sided Quad Beater Bass Drum:

    I replaced a broken beater (not Pearl) with the Pearl B200QB 4 Sided Quad Beater. I am very happy with the quality of construction, the versitility and overall sound. I would recommend it to other players. Today, many manufactures are trying to build more complex designs that often times reduce the quality and durability. This beater has everything you need and nothing you don't need.

    Comments about Pearl B200QB 4 Sided Quad Beater Bass Drum:

    I'd like to address several issues with this beater, it's product claims, it's photographic presentation and finally the other reviews.First these beaters do not have 4 unique heads.They have two head styles and are simply rotated 180 degrees on the opposite side. The horizontal beaters work ok, the vertical do not make full contact "thus giving you four sounds" and the plastic mallets sound horrible and are useless. The photos are cleverly disguised to make it look like it has four different heads shot from above. They are not worth $20. To correct statements that they are heavy, they weigh 3.2 grams / exactly the same weight as stock Gibraltar beaters.

    Great Beater

    By Usmdrummer

    from Hattiesburg, MS

    Comments about Pearl B200QB 4 Sided Quad Beater Bass Drum:

    This beater came with my Pearl double pedal several year ago, and I'm still using the original beaters. I've now worn one felt side down to where I get the sound of felt and some attack from the rubber on the sides. ha, ha It sounds great though.

    Expensive, heavy, good variety.

    Comments about Pearl B200QB 4 Sided Quad Beater Bass Drum:

    It's a great beater but a little on the heavy side if your doing a lot or sensitive double kick, but I like the sound of all sides of it.

    Does give you a variety of sounds, but costs too much.

    As long as I have used mine it has never worn out

    By underlord2000

    from Nashua

    Comments about Pearl B200QB 4 Sided Quad Beater Bass Drum:

    Not only can it provide a clean punch or a smooth hit but it can be used for all types of drumming. As the years pass and I keep using the same batter, the batter won't ever wear out!
