About This Listing

The VKB5 Wood Shaft VicKick Beater distributes weight for an unbelievable sense of balance and throw. Unlock a sense of touch and control that is simply not attainable with any other beater on the market.This meticulously crafted beater is as unique functionally as it is visually. A large maple shaft and reduced size felt head creates an even distribution of weight from top to bottom, resulting in smoother action and more control throughout the dynamic range.Developed in collaboration with the legendary performer and educator, Peter Erskine and tested with drummers across every genre of music, the VKB5 is the new standard for any drummer looking for exceptional feel, balance and control."As drummers, we like the feel of wood," states Erskine. "The reason we’re drawn to choosing a specific stick is because it’s an important part of the touch and tone that we get from the drums and cymbals. The way a stick feels - the length, the diameter, the position of the shoulder, the density of the wood - all contribute to the way it’s balanced and weighted. Why would we not want to have the same feel and experience of wood for our bass drum?"The new VKB5 was carefully designed to work for all drummers on any pedal setup. A standard size rod and tapered wood shaft ensure that the beater fits universally into the hub with plenty of clearance over the cam. A 1.75" felt ball packs a punch, while still being slim enough for clearance on a double bass pedal.Erskine states, "After receiving the first prototype, I discovered that I had a whole new relationship with my bass drum. I’ve connected to the instrument in subtle ways that’s hard to explain."
