"My kit feels ten times more comfortable now that the kick doesn't move. I can now reach another level of performance with the confidence that I can hit as hard as I want and everything will stay in its place."

"I was skeptical at first because, companies have given me products before, that were supposed to stop my bass drum from moving. I started using KBRakes and couldn't believe it...these things actually WORK! I have a pretty powerful kick and my drum isn't moving anywhere since I've added these things to my setup."

"I've always had a problem with my kick drum staying in place, since I first started touring. The spurs on your average kick drum leg just don't seem to cut it. KBrakes are the solution I've been fantasizing about for years. I can't imagine life without them at this point! Do yourself a favor and grab a pair, you won't be disappointed."

"KBrakes have allowed me to play confidently without the worry of losing my kick drum. I now can put all my focus into performing to the best of my ability, and I really have benefited from that immensely. I love KBrakes!"

“I was a bit sceptical about how well these new feet would work, as I’m used to using spikes but I have to say I was blown away, we were shooting a video on all sorts of uneven surfaces, concrete, grass and gravel and the KBrakes performed amazing under these conditions, the kit didn’t move an inch. We also played a few shows with them on the kit and again they blew expectations, not moving off of the drum mat, giving me piece of mind during my set, another drummer from that show also commented on them asking where he could get a set. They also fold nearly flat against the shell for transport. All in all a brilliant product!”

Blake Ritterman

“KBrakes allow me to set my up my kick drum before a gig, and not have to worry about it until it's time to pack up. Simply put, KBrakes work in keeping your kick in place so that you're free to play it on a variety of surfaces, and with as much force as you need. Here's to the end of nomadic bass drums!”

Brad Moxey

“I’ve been using KBrakes for over a year now. They were the missing piece in my set-up. I’ve had to do fly dates where I wasn’t sure if I would get to use a dependable kit. Taking my KBrakes helps me to be able to play relaxed knowing I’m not going to be chasing the kick drum around. In Evergreen Terrace I like to lay into the pedals and now I can knowing the kick is staying right where I want it. When I’m not touring I’m home playing 4 hour cover gigs with Dirty Pete. I can go the whole gig knowing it’s not moving. I’ve been waiting for something like this forever. Thank you KBrakes for allowing me to play with confidence and as loud as I want.”

"Something I've struggled with as a drummer is my Kick sliding forward. It's a total nightmare and I've tried everything from weights, to even putting amps in front of my bass drum. KBrakes has been my problem solver and keeps me planted!"

"I've always had trouble with my backline kick drums in europe sliding on me. I brought my KBrakes on my last trip and my kick did not budge."

"KBrakes is an excellent piece of anti-slide technology that stops my kick drum from moving around. It's simple design and stout construction is perfect for any touring drummer looking to lock their bass drum in one spot for his or hers entire set. It's truly "Anti-panic attack technology."

“It took me a long time to admit that I hit like a truck. I wanted to be known for technical, finesse playing like some of my drumming heroes. After I embraced my inner-truckness I liked the bombast. There’s nothing quite like throwing down a nasty groove and hitting like you mean it, LOL. Anyway, that was all well and good until my bass drum decided to start moving. It was tough to propel my bands in the studio and on stage with a squirrely kick drum. I contemplated sand bags (the professional TV studio type) but that would’ve been just plain silly. Recently a fellow drummer pal turned me onto KBrakes and I’ve never looked back. Installation took less than five minutes, required zero tools and my bass drum hasn’t budged an inch since. Thanks to my KBrakes it feels like my kick is bolted to the riser and they fold flat so my drum still slides into its case. Brilliant.”

Dan Silver

"We all know the feeling of being in the middle of a gig, getting into the groove, and all of a sudden finding your kick drum running away. It happens all the time and it sucks. Unfortunately, we aren't equipped with 4 arms and can't pull it back to where it belongs while playing the way we want to play. That's where KBrakes come in. They universally fit onto any kick drum leg and give me the confidence I need to know I can play for the night without worrying about my drums falling off the stage."

“This is the first product to actually keep my kick in place during a show. You've gotta try the KBrakes!”

“If you’ve ever played the drums in your life then you know how frustrating it is to play on a kit when the kick drum moves. not too many other musicians have to deal with such a performance altering situation every night they play. I’ve been through every scenario, I’ve kick drummed my kit right off the stage before. I’ve put my drums up against a paint disintegrating cinderblock, I’ve told band members to keep a watch on the drum only to watch in horror as they keep their backs turned to the situation (who in a band wants to spend a whole set with their foot on the kick drum anyways?) I’ve even had a guy from the audience come on to the stage and kneel down in front of my kit and hold the drum in place while head banging furiously. The idea that there could be a small, efficient, and practical solution to this bane of my existence was such music to my ears. When I heard about KBrakes I was more than intrigued, I was salivating. no more nights waking up in a cold sweat. no more dread, no more hanging heads, and no more frustration. Having just finished a small stint of shows using the KBrakes every night I can with confidence say that I will never drum without them again. At one point I believed that I was hitting the kick drum and it was so solidly positioned that it was actually moving my stool backwards. I don’t drum efficiently, I smash it, and KBrakes stop my kick drum from moving in every situation I’ve put them through. LEAVE YOUR CINDERBLOCKS AT HOME!

"KBrakes drastically reduces the headaches of drummers having to constantly bring a drum rug to the gig....They're strong, sturdy and they definitely allow the drummer to lay into the bass drum without any worries of it moving. Check them out ASAP! ✌️

"KBrakes let me play the way I want to on most any surface. I don't ever have to worry about getting too aggressive and pushing my bass drum away. They're the real deal."

Herman Winkler

"It the world of drumming, as with life itself, the things we can “set and forget” are often the greatest achievements of our time. For years chasing my bass drum across countless stages/risers has been the bane of my existence. This is no longer the case. KBrakes are lifesavers. Right out of the package they are super user friendly. Installation was a breeze on both kits I’ve used them on. I carry with me a gig rug that is made of thin material and rolls up to fit in my hardware case. The KBrakes lock in every time and keep by bass drum firmly planted no matter how much punishment I dish out. At the end of the gig they fold right up and fit into my bass drum case fully attached requiring no extra work whatsoever. The best compliment/statement that can be made is that since installing KBrakes I haven’t had to think about my bass drum moving-even once. KBrakes are an amazing product that every drummer should have."

"I've played drums all over the world and a lot of the time I've had to deal with the misfortune of a sliding kick drum. A simple variable like that can ruin a whole show from the first song. Once I started using KBrakes I got rid of my reliance on cinder blocks and felt in control again. Thanks to KBrakes I get to focus on drumming and drumming alone."

"The kbrakes worked perfectly! I've yet to experience any bass drum sliding since I received them and I love it!"

"I carry my kbrakes in my bag because alot of the backline kits can't hold my heavy foot. So I take it out and slap them on and rip the show and my kick drum stays in place, road tough."

Justin Malek

"I have used cinder blocks, tape, amps, singers, bass players…just about everything and I move them all. With Kbrakes the kick plain and simply doesn’t budge."

"I love the fact that I can elevate the front of my bass drum a few inches to allow more resonance without it sliding or rocking. KBrakes are a total game changer. They will keep you in line!"

"Kbrakes are the exact solution I have been looking for. I have such a heavy kick drum foot I have broken many kick pedals. This is the only product out there that will keep your bass drum locked down to the rug. Brilliant design that is a must for a rental/fly date kit. You don’t need a cinder block or sandbags anymore when using Kbrakes."

Mark Bell
Prince Royce

"I like to play hard and the kick drum has always been an issue of staying in one place. I've used bricks, sandbags, and a "tape fort" to try and stop my kick drum from moving. The KBrakes stopped it all together, and it's easy to put on and take off for when I use other drums that might have that "slide drum" issues."

"KBrakes are probably the simplest, most trouble- and maintenance-free upgrade I have ever made to my drumset. No drum product has removed more worry, stress, and frustration from my life than KBrakes. It's like looking back at something traumatic while at a high class party, glass of champagne in hand, and saying "Oh, Reginald, remember that era of great uncertainty when didn't know if I'd have to spend the whole show chasing my own bass drum down, waiting for a free moment to yank it back into place so my left bass drum pedal would flop over like a wounded animal? Hahaha yes that was an awful time, wasn't it?! And remember that GHASTLY rug with a 2x4 nailed to it??? Thank the Lord of Light we never have to see it's like again."

"On tour, or in the studio KBrakes is a priceless addition for any drummer! My kick used to slide, and now it doesn't! Period!"

Tosh Peterson
Independent and Clinician

"When I first put Kbrakes on my kick drum I was blown away. Not only did they stop my kick from sliding but they also gave my bass drum even more low end. I play a 24" bass drum so I didn't think that was possible until I actually heard it for myself. I highly encourage everyone to give Kbrakes a try, you won't be disappointed."

Tristan Kelley

"KBrakes have been an invaluable addition to my setup. I love the sound of my vintage Ludwig kit but I was always hesitant to gig with it because it never stayed in place. The older style legs and spurs just couldn't handle the heavy hitting of modern drumming. KBrakes changed that in an instant! I have experienced ZERO movement since installing KBrakes. I can also swap them easily between my SJC and DW kits and never have to worry about sliding again."

Tyler Rice

"Cleats for your drums! With similarities to NFL players wearing cleats for traction and grip on the field. K Brakes gives me the traction and grip I need to not slip and slide when playing."

Zach Seiger
Dave Root Band

"I have tried everything imaginable to keep my kick drum still; bricks, cases, even tying it to my seat with shoelaces. Nothing worked. I found KBrakes at my local drum shop and decided to try it.....instantly hooked. After my first gig with them, my band mates could not believe how tight we were and it is because every 5 seconds I wasn't pulling my kick drum in. From that moment, I was sold on KBrakes for life."
