Tackle Instrument Supply and Dragonfly Percussion have once again teamed up to create The Big Softy- the biggest and softest bass drum beater on the planet. Like Dragonfly’s other popular beaters, The Big Softy is constructed of tightly stacked layers of fabric on a threaded brass stem. The Big Softy sports 3” discs of soft, fluffy flannel, resulting in a huge bass response. Because the beater has no core- only the layers of fleece, there is almost no attack. This beater has a ton of give against the head, and feels as luscious as it sounds.
If you want to transform the sound of your kick into something totally new with maximum, full-bodied lows and virtually no contact sound- look no further than the Big Softy.

Adapted from a Viennese-style of timpani mallets, these new beaters are constructed of tightly stacked discs of flannel, canvas and leather. The full-bodied, warm sound and responsive feel is unlike anything else you’ve tried.
The 40 layers of canvas discs stacked tightly together produce a super round, bass-y sound, but with a surprising amount of punch and clarity. While softer than your standard felt beater,...
