Vic Firth VKB1 VicKick Beaters™ Felt
Vic Firth VKB1 VicKick Beaters™ FeltFelt, radial. Medium-hard premium felt head creates clear articulation with a full low-end sound. Dual orientation offers multiple sound and feel options. A fantastic general beater for all musical styles!
Available in felt, wood and fleece, VicKick BeatersTM feature spherical heads that provide a consistent striking surface. These three special models each provide distinct and appropriate levels of articulation, all while achieving an enhanced low-end sound.
Within the VicKickTM series, both the felt and wood beaters feature a unique dual striking position. Set in the “radial” position, the beater provides clear articulation, consistent rebound and allows for side-by- side clearance when used on double pedal setups. The “flat” position increases beater surface contact for enhanced sound. The fleece beater is crafted with an oval felt core and sets up in a singular position.
“There are more mechanically conceived bass drum pedals and beaters available today than ever before,” states Neil Larrivee, Director of Education and Product Development at Vic Firth Co. “Although it was important for us to keep mechanics in mind, VicKick BeatersTM have been designed with sound quality as the number one priority. That’s what makes these beaters so unique!”
