DW Release New Bass Drum Beaters

DW Drums debuts two new adjustable bass drum beaters that offer drummers easy solutions for changing up the sound of their bass drums on the fly. Created in direct cooperation with two of the world’s top drummers; the Black Sheep Beater designed by Nashville drummer Rich Redmond (Jason Aldean) and the patented Control XL Beater™ designed in conjunction with studio legend, J.R. Robinson (Barbra Streisand/Michael Jackson) both designs are perfect for maximizing the tonal potential of any kick drum.

“These two new beaters offer quick easy options to change up your sound with little or no effort,” said DW Director of R&D, Rich Sikra. “The Black Sheep Beater and the Control XL beaters are the ‘chameleons’ of bass drum beaters. With a simple adjustment to the beater heads, drummers can modify their sound, attack and volume in a matter of seconds.”


Designed by by Nashville drummer Rich Redmond, The Black Sheep Beater offers two distinct sonic variations. At the core of the accessory is a black-stained maple beater which delivers ample punch and attack. The beater also comes with elastic black wool covering which quickly installs and provides a soft thump that’s perfect for open bass drum tunings. 


The Control XL Beater™ was designed in collaboration with studio legend John “J.R.” Robinson, and  includes  interchangeable, oversized square wood and felt striking surfaces, as well as an extra-long steel shaft for optimal throw and power. Based on the original Control Beater™ model that is standard equipment on high-end DW Manufacturing pedals, the multipurpose design allows drummers to adjust the amount of weight at the beater head and change beater playing surfaces instantly. The Control XL’s longer shaft measures 8.15” for additional throw and power, while oversized, square wood or felt beater faces provides more head contact for maximum volume and attack. Beater weight (loaded with 4 weights): 120g | Empty Beater weight: 80g | Each weight is 10gbr.
