“Purely and simply – they sound and feel great. When I got my first beater Iggy’s front of house guy and I tested them out. I played with my standard beater, and then switched to my Low Boy and it immediately made the bass drum sound fatter and bigger. This was a straight out professional thing, our sound guy noticed the difference straight away – and that was enough for me.
On top of this they’re things of beauty! I love the look of my beaters and they feel so much better than anything else. Jeremy and the team are great guys making a beautiful beater. I’m proud to use these beaters and be part of the Low Boy team.”
