KickPort Bass Drum Sonic Enhancer Port

This insert provides exactly what you want from your kick drum: more punch, more bass and less ring. Based on the design of a subwoofer, the KickPort enhances the low end you feel, even lower than your ears can hear. Limiting the amount of dampening to the head, the KickPort allows the drum to resonate beautifully providing the best possible tone for your kick drum. Get rid of those pillows or blankets that choke the vibrations of the shell and use a KickPort for the best sound around.

The KickPort Drum Insert applies subwoofer technology to your bass drum giving you low end you feel, even lower than your ears can hear. Additionally, it adds ideal dampening to the head which allows you to reclaim all that valuable resonant space inside your beautiful drum. So now you are free to remove that giant sleeping pillow choking the vibrations of the shell and replace it with minimal internal dampening.

What is the end result? And how does it work?
You get a much richer tone by allowing your drum to use more of its own voice, giving it more punch by enhancing the low frequencies, adding warm compression, and increasing resonance inside the drum.

What does that mean to you behind the kit?
Simply more punch, better batter head response, a much improved kick presence for the audience via your live or studio engineer. More so, you will feel and hear all those beautiful things whether or not you are mic'd up.

NOTE: Each Kickport Port includes one Kickport T-Ring.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Awesome sound!"
Sound: This Gadget has impressed me more than I thought it would ! I used an evans EQ3 Black reso head and inserted the Kickport, It made in instand difference in the drum sound, It rounded the sound out, It definatly gave it more Punch and it brought the lows right into focus, Great great sound and one of the best investments I made so far ! It sounds great!One thing is to tighten up your reso head a bit more with this in it! Feature: Use the reinforcement rind that comes in the package Ease of Use: Very simple to install took me two minutes Quality: Seems very well made Value: For what it does to the sound of a Bass drum?? Yes this is a great value and the best $40 bucks you will ever spend! Manufacturer Support: Not dealt with The Wow Factor: If You want the best bass drum sound you can get then you NEED this to complete that sound Overall: Hopefully a long time, you can use this over and over in different heads!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The mighty BOOM"
Ease of Use: The only thing I would warn of on this product is that you don't want the hole to be too BIG. If you cut a 6 inch hole, the kick port is easy to install but it has the tendency to slide down while your playing and this creates a gap where the felt will get caught on the lip of your drum head and will cause it to rip. After replacing my broken drumhead, I cut a 5 inch hole and its a bit tighter to get the product installed but fits nice and snug once you get it in. Quality: The material that the Kick Port is made of seems to be quite sturdy and well made. No complaints. Value: This item is not very expensive, so it won't set you back too much to give it a try. I do not think you will regret it. Overall: Before I ever bought this product for myself, a friend of mine let me borrow his to see if i like the way it made my bass drum sound. I was pretty skeptical and thought the whole thing seemed like a gimmick but After seeing the difference it made on his Gretcsh Renown 24inch kickdrum, i was sold. (for reference, he put his kickport in the exact center of the drumhead which it says not to do, but it definitely sounded significantly better after taking out and playing with it off and on) I took it home and used on the drums I had at he time, which had a 20inch kick, and it really beefed up the tone. It surprisingly changed the response of my beaters against the batter head, making it feel a bit tighter. After purchasing a Gretsch kit of my own, I finally bought one for myself and I use it in combination with my Remo Powerstroke 3 on the batter and a coated Emperor on the front of my 22inch bass drum. I do not use any muffling in side the drum. The KickPort seems to take a little away from the overall volume but it certainly boosts the lower frequencies of your bassdrum sound while also taking some of the more annoying tones away. Basically, my Bass Drum sounds really awesome (ive had several compliments from band mates and fellow drummers at local shows) and its due in large part to the addition of this product. I would highly recommend this for just about any style of drummer.
