These beaters are for those that want a fancy beater with leather handle and fringe. They are beautiful and the leather on the handle make them easier to hold when you are dumming. Truly worth a little extra. Again this size is recommended for the larger drums 16" and 18". We can make you fancy beaters for your smaller drums at the same price, just let us know. We are here to please. Wholesale price list available. We offer a Blind Drop Ship program.
