Katy Perry, American Idol

“I’ve always used felt beaters but much prefer the Low Boys because I like hitting a flat surface on the flat surface of the head. I have more contact control and there’s more surface area hitting the drum. In reality, you spend so much time finding the right stick for your hands and don’t even consider what your feet are doing. When I started messing around with these beaters, they were really comfy.”
