Outlaw Drums is proud to present a Revolutionary new design in kick drum beaters that will get you noticed! Using End grain boards much like chopping blocks, gives a harder, deeper sound. Each comes with a Polished Stainless Steel rod, Plus a replaceable felt pad. The wood is born of the same first generation heart pine wood; The wood that has become the signature of the company, these Hammers provide a larger kick presence than ordinary felt beaters. The Hammers incorporate two different angled impact sides that provide two different impact results. One side remains round while the other is angled on a perfect 9 Degrees to meet the kick drum head straight on. Meeting the kick head “straight on” provides maximum coverage and contact with the head, increasing the effect on the strike-zone. Utilizing an angled beater also extends the life of the drum head.

Just being around this old lumber feels like it’s telling you a story of where it’s been. Even when the saw blade starts to cut the wood, the fragrance of the wood fills the air, and you can’t help but wonder about the lives touched by this lumber. Every piece is different in its own way. Some with old bolt and nail holes with the square holes left from the old cut nails. Others still have the original saw kerfs. These unique boards are one-of-a-kind and when they are gone they are gone. It takes about 80 years for the wood to gain that reddish color. It’s getting harder and harder to find. Old tobacco barns, plantation homes, mills or bridges, built before the 1900’s, are about the only places you can find it.
The process of reclaiming this wood can be painstaking. The collection of these boards has to be carefully executed and every board has to be checked with a metal detector to ensure that no nails are hit with the planer knives. Because of the slow growth rate, Long leaf pines were not replanted. Lumber cut today is referred to as new heart pine.
