The Bass Plate quickly and securely attaches to any bass drum using the same screws and holes that are used for the two bottom, back tension lugs. The Bass Plate restores the balance and fullness of the bass drum’s sound by removing the bass drum pedal from the bass drum hoop, distributing the weight of the drum more evenly and suspending it slightly off the ground. The Bass Plate’s flat clamping surface and six inch width allows drummers to adjust the position of their pedals laterally.
