... Whether for gigs, recording, or just jammin'
in the garage, there is a Power Head beater model for any music
situation you need it for. Made of Hytrel®, a virtually indestructible,
polyester elastomer engineering plastic designed for motor mount
bushings in automobiles, the Slug Power Head will not crack,
or split open. Hytrel reproduces low frequency sound especially
well, and does not color bass drum sound with high frequency
attack or click sounds. The superior rebounding quality of
the Hytrel also improves foot speed making faster play easier.
The head is held secure by two snap-fit caps, and will never
come off. There are no nuts or screws to loosen. And the Power
Head never needs adjustment with any tools. The Power Head
adjusts to your foot pedal set-up. The Power Head's patented
Unitary-Axle design is "free-floating", adjusting
automatically up to 8 degrees up and down and 5 degrees from
side to side for maximum drumhead contact. Even if your foot
pedal set-up is not in perfectly square alignment with the bass
drumhead, the Power Head's "forgiving" action will
keep it hitting square.
...Choose in an instant from two playing surfaces.
The Power Head can be turned around without loosening from
the foot pedal because of an internal cam-action
mechanism engineered within the head. As you turn the head
by hand, you will feel a stop, keeping it in place during play.
Two completely different beater sounds and foot feels are at
hand with a simple 180 degree turn! The flat, slotted hammer-head
side hits hard and "punchy". A 3/16" lateral groove
divides the face, allowing air to escape out the sides of the
beater face preventing any suction or slapping sound on the drumhead.
The oval-rounded side of the Power Head sounds very full and
"thuddy"; playing very quick with fast rebound. A replaceable 3/4" wide felt
pad wraps around this end to reproduce the sound of a traditional
felt head beater.
The Power Head's patented tapered shaft design is also another
drumming first! All shafts start from .280" rod stock and
are slightly tapered down to .240" on the bottom end, similar
to a baseball bat. Balance-tapering improves foot feel and
speed, delivering tremendous power due to increased shaft mass,
limited flex, and end weighted balance. Admire the machined
finish of aerospace grade Titanium or 17-4PH Stainless Steel;
the naked beauty of these tapered shafts must be seen to be appreciated! Tremendous playing results and sound quality also
when used with a cowbell foot pedal set-up!
Power Head beater tapered shafts are
the strongest on the market and bend proof, guaranteed unbreakable, unlike
other brands that are only "bend-resistant". The Power
Head is the best in value, foot feel, and sound in bass drum
Because of the increased power and impact
force of the Power Head beater, a Batter
Badge Armourphragm impact pad is recommended for protecting your bass drumhead.
