DW Black Sheep Bass Drum Beater
DW’s Black Sheep Beater is two beaters in one, featuring a larger wooden beater core that produces a hard sound which is a bit wider than most wooden beaters. The end result is a clear attack and almost a vintage sound. The main selling point of this beater is the included black wool cover which can be attached to the beater to completely change its sound. The wool cover is held in place by an elastic band and simply slips over the top of the wooden beater, allowing it to produce a softer thumpy sound. It’s a great option for drummers who like an open bass drum sound or coated heads without a mic hole. This beater is great for musical theater drummers who often have to switch from a kick drum sound to that of a concert bass drum, a task accomplished quickly and easily with this beater.
