DW Control XL Beater dwsm110XL
DW’s Control beaters are the best beaters offered by DW. The Control XL beater has a long shaft and an oversized beater face which is different than the face of the similar Control beater; in my opinion the XL beater produces a fuller sound. I’ve never really cared for the beaters that are usually included with DW pedals, but these beaters are far superior, being far quicker and more responsive. The face can be switched from felt to wood, the weight can be adjusted with ease, and the pedal has removable weights so each drummer can find the perfect weight for their style. This beater has a great sound and a ton of options while having the bonus added bonus of being extremely affordable as well.
