Friend and colleague Dinesh Joseph has introduced a new line of bass drum beaters (He calls them kick drum beaters) through his company Dragonfly Percussion. Up until now he has mainly focused on orchestral percussion mallets and beaters. His orchestra bell, vibe, marimba and xylophone mallets are unique and fantastic filling a need in that market. He also makes gong, tam tam and concert bass drum mallets. He made me a couple of pair of drumset mallets that I love. I helped with some r&d and the videos on these beaters. These are a very nice selection of beaters that can serve a variety of situations. Check them out!!

These look awesome, and a new approach to beater construction as far as I'm aware. Might have to grab one of those canvas ones. Seems like they're probably fairly durable especially for the dynamic i'm usually playing at, I wonder if he'd sell replacement beaters (minus the shaft) separately for when they eventually wear out.

Thanks for posting this! I’ve been thinking I need to play around with different beaters. Just ordered the set—I will plan to report back here when they arrive.

We like to put infant-sized socks of various kinds on my beaters. Whole lot cheaper and infinitely variable with combinations of fabric and gaffer's tape.
