 Why do I need KBrakes?

Drummers need KBrakes to help control the variables. Touring drummers don't often play under the same conditions every night. Sometimes the stage is moist from humidity in the club, sometimes the drum riser or stage is not one solid piece cause bouncing and shifting of things.

Not only do KBrakes lock your kick drum in place but they also offer more surface area and create a more stable base from your drum to sit on. KBrakes also act as a shock absorber for your drums since a lot of drummers pull off the rubber feet and play with just the metal spikes out, this doesn’t give your drum the best sound, the KBrakes take the place of the rubber feet keeping your drum sounding natural opposed to the sound of metal spurs bouncing off of a solid floor.

Will KBrakes fit my drum spurs?

KBrakes are designed to fit 99% of modern and vintage drum spurs on the market. Most spurs have a rubber foot and washer that spins off leaving your an exposed spike. If you have this on your kick drum KBrakes should fit. If you have any doubt or question send us a pic of your kick drum before placing your order.
