Generator LLC announces the Kik Brik ($44) acoustically designed bass drum damper for drummers, recording engineers and live-sound engineers. The Kik Brik is a physical drumhead damper as well as an acoustic damper that absorbs unwanted overtones or ringing across a broad frequency bandwidth. Uniquely shaped ends dampen one or both heads for the desired sound. The patent-pending design is based on acoustical science and 30 years of experience in recording and drumming.
The Kik Brik's core is formed from specially manufactured high-density multi-layered recycled cotton, which has linear sound absorption and is said to be more effective than acoustic foam. According to Generator LLC, this material “treats” the inside of the drum to eliminate unwanted reflections and resonances.
