Psalm 150: 5&6 Praise him with loud cymbals; Praise him with crashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD!
When I was a young drummer growing up in the mid 1980's, I was into everything from Rush to Run-D M C. One day I went to the local music store and picked out a new round, fluffy bass drum beater and I was ready to ROCK. However, disappointment soon set in when I realized that changing the beater was such a hassle getting down on my knees using both hands and drum key to unbolt the beater was NOT COOL. As a result I never used that new beater again, I just kept my plain stock beater locked on for life!
Fast forward 30 years: Drum Concepts has finally imagined a way to quickly switch out your beater with ONE hand and NO tools. We are proud to introduce you to Switch Kick the world's first quick release bass drum beater!

Risks and challenges
RISKS and CHALLENGES: No one wants to see a good product go to waste…especially when we have worked extremely hard to get this product ready to manufacture. This Kickstarter campaign will help us launch the full-scale manufacturing and fulfillment of Switch Kick, however risks and challenges are a part of life and we rise to the challenges with a positive outlook and will always look for the best solutions.
MANUFACTURING: Producing the tooling to manufacture a product of this caliber are costly and require professional knowledge to get it done right the first time. There is about a 60 day lead-time to make the injection molds and special tools for a product of this quality. This is where delays could possible occur, but to minimize this possibly we have been working with manufacturers for the past six months to ensure minimum delays. PRODUCT FINE-TUNING: As we gear up for production, there will likely be some minor modifications for improving the final design and product. Our proof-of-concept prototypes work incredibly well and have been beta tested by hundreds of drummers. Our pre-production prototypes will be made and refined to allow us to integrate any adjustments suggested by our competent manufacturing professionals. These changes will be made for the improvement of you, the drummer, and we will let you know how and why changes are made.
FULFILLMENT: Although we do not anticipate any delays from time to time things go awry… a supplier misses a deadline, a machine breaks, or a shipment goes missing To diminish the likelihood of delays we have multiple experts that have and will continue help ensure fulfillment from our suppliers and factories. There might be some surprises along the way, but we have and will handle any challenges that arise immediately
