Rob Mitzner

Author, “Drumming in a Band: Stuff You Can Use” (Hudson Music)

The creative possibilities of swapping out your bass drum beater to adapt to different musical situations are simply endless. As a session musician in New York City, these beaters make my job so much easier.

Low Boy has a beater for every possible scenario in the studio or onstage. I’m totally hooked!
