Welcome to Dynamic Beaters
Thank you to all who have made this possible. The patented Flexible Beaters are designed to improve Drummers ergonomics when performing. The first of its kind in the world! The FlexBeater makes for a smooth response with any conventional pedal. There is a slight flexion in the beater and that provides an enhanced rebound and shock absorption which just plain feels good and gives a nice open tone on the bass drum. Your engineers will love it too. There are several weights and degrees of flexion to choose from. Feel The Flex! #flexbeater

"I think of my feet as an extension of my hands! The feel of the beater hitting the bass drum head feels the same as my sticks rebound when I use the Dynamic Drum Beaters! They react the same as my hands and this gives me more freedom of expression!"

Dynamic Beaters are the best thing to come into the drumming world in a very long time. Why no one had thought of this in over 100 years is beyond me. You will be thrilled and so will your right leg! It feels like power steering for your bass drum. Seriously! Ditch the old manual and move in to the future. We have been Using them nonstop on all our sessions.

I can't tell you how much I love these beaters. They have truly enhanced my playing ability and comfort much more than expected.
I can't wait to see the impact that these will have in the marketplace. Drummers worldwide are gonna elevate!
I just love the sound and feel of these Dynamic Bass Drum Beaters. The Flex in the shaft provides extra speed when playing, 2, 3 or 4 bass drum hits in a row. The Flex also provides more low end from a kick drum when recording, simply due to it's design. A sound in between burying the beater and not burying the beater. The different style and weight of the beaters from light to heavy really give me all the variations I need in recording varying genres of music. They are super versatile and I could not be happier!

"If you’re looking for a way to better control your bass drum strokes, if you’re looking for a way to be able to more easily play different dynamics with your bass drum... Then this is THE tool for you."
Kostadin Kamcev Drummer & Engineer www.mozartstudio.com
“ As a recording engineer, capturing the best possible sound from my clients is my priority. Dynamic Drum Beaters make my job easier, as their flexibility, snap, and high-quality felt beater allow drummers to produce powerful, full-bodied sounds from the bass drum consistently and with ease. As a drummer, the beaters feel and sound excellent. I am able to play with full dynamic range for an extended period of time, while exerting a fraction of the effort I would have with a standard drumbeater. Dynamic Drum Beaters are a great addition to any drummer’s toolkit.”
Tom Smith Independent Artist
As one of the people whose right foot is starting to experience problems due more to age than technique, (I don’t dig the beater into the head very often) the advantages of the “shock absorber” aspect shouldn’t be dismissed. I’m just winding up a very busy month and my “problem foot” is no worse for the wear. I can’t help but think the beater played a big part in this. it does feel like it has a lighter impact, but it evidently doesn’t sound lighter.……it’s working.

Which FlexBeater is right for me?
Why don't we drummers think of bass drum beaters like we think of drumsticks. We measure the weight of our drumsticks in terms of size, 5A,5B, and so on but we don't do the same for our bass drum beaters. Do you know the weight of your bass drum beater? Like most of us you probably don't. (see chart) Some beaters can weigh 120 grams and others 71 grams. Thats quite a difference. FlexBeaters offer ranges from 50 to 90 grams. We can go higher or lower, but find this is the most common range. We are the first to suggest the idea of weighing beaters and choosing them like we do sticks. Here is a guide to help choose.
The light Weight FlexBeater
If your beater weighs <80 give the Light FlexBeater a try.
quick response and light feel.
Medium Weight FlexBeater
If your current beater weighs >80 then give the Medium FlexBeater a try.
Quick but with a little more weight for those who like to dig in a bit more.
The lighter weights are made with lighter material. Don't worry they wont bend. The Flex Technology prevents that from happening.
Where do I begin?
Start with the beater you currently use. Take a food scale and set it to grams. You may want to use a cup to hold the beater in place. You just need to zero the scale with the cup on it then add the beater to get an accurate weight. FlexBeaters use a heavy beater ball with a light rod so you get an overall lighter beater with a big punch.
Refer to the chart for popular beater weights. (reference only. Meant as a guide)
Which color Flex do I choose.
The Purple Flex Beater offers a nice feel and response off of the bass drum.
The Red Flexbeater is very similar to the purple with just a less flexion. Good for those who like a heavier feel. Please don't hesitate to send an email with any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
Dynamic Beaters – FlexBeater
Flex Beaters are the invention of Rich Farago who designed them to improve drummer’s ergonomics while performing.
Each beater has a flexion – the red or purple plastic part between the beater and shaft – which flexes when the beater comes into contact with the bass drum head. The purple flexion is slightly more flexible than the red version.
What the flexion does is essentially soften the impact of the contact and also provides a spring movement improving the response.
We were sent two versions of the Flex Beater with slightly different weights of beater head (the number you’ll see written on the beater itself) and two variants of the flexion, but with both having a 7 3/4” long shaft. A longer 8 1/4” shaft is also available.
To use, the Flex Beaters definitely provided me with two things – improved bounce and a slightly cushioned playing experience.
Admittedly, I don’t have any physical issues when playing the bass drum, however, I know someone who does. Having also tried the Flex Beaters, he assures me that they do really help him with his ankle pain when playing.
As far as the playing experience goes though, anything other than a straight single stoke was genuinely enhanced and made a little easier and more smooth with either model.
I’ve been trying these beaters both live and at home for a few months. During that time, I was surprised at how noticeable the difference is between regular felt beaters (or indeed, beaters in general) and the Flex Beaters; they really do work.
The beaters we were sent were from the initial run which sold out, but I understand that they are now in full production. Rich has also told me that other beater type models are being lined up too.
