Vic Firth VKB3 VicKick Beaters™, Fleece-covered Felt
Vic Firth VKB3 VicKick Beaters™, Fleece-covered FeltFleece-covered felt, oval. Medium felt core covered with fleece for an incredibly full and warm sound! Outstanding for jazz!
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!”
