> > > Get inspired: DIY Soft Sound Beater

Some time ago we have launched new series of videos under our Get inspired banner. Those are very short clips showing practical applications of new, not-so-obvious or slightly overlooked effects, hardware or accessories from various manufacturers, and stuff made by us.

This time it’s going to be a gear made by us. We were really inspired by a Soft Sound beater produced by Tama. We decided to make one on our own. This one may not be the same as Tama’s, but our goal was to show you that you are able to construct cool stuff using cheap things that can be found in every shop, mall or even in your home!

To make this kind of beater you will need:

  • pedal
  • dish-washing sponge
  • assembly knife
  • gaffer tape
  • marker

Gear used in test:

  • 14×8″ Tama S.L.P Big Black Steel snare drum
  • 22×18″ Sonor Ascent bass drum
  • 14″ Zlidjian S Mastersound hihat

Check out our video, and see how easy it is to create soft sound beater! We have compared it to the normal beater and the results are really interesting!
