Dragonfly Percussion has been designing and manufacturing mallets used in the world’s top orchestras for 20 years. Now they’ve brought that attention to timbre and their innovative designs to the drum set world with a new line of kick drum beaters. Adapted from a Viennese-style of timpani mallets, these new beaters are constructed of tightly stacked discs of flannel, canvas and leather. The full-bodied, warm sound and responsive feel is unlike anything else you’ve tried.
Dragonfly Percussion Medium Canvas Kick Drum Beater
The 40 layers of canvas discs stacked tightly together produce a super round, bass-y sound, but with a surprising amount of punch and clarity. While softer than your standard felt beater, it elicits a fat, bold, warm sound without sacrificing attack and punch.
