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 XL Flannel Kick Drum Beater
This beater is a perfect blend of the Dragonfly Soft Flannel Beater and the Big Softy, 4 Layers of ultra soft fleece are sandwiched between 32 layers of soft flannel. With its diameter of 2 ½” it is exactly between the 3″ Big Softy and 2″ Soft Flannel. It gives your bass drum a huge, boomy sound with very little attack and a little more clarity than the Big Softy, but definitely softer and more boomy than the Soft Flannel
