Dixson BDL-100 Bass Drum Lift
Top customer reviews
The problem was mainly that my Tama Iron Cobra 200 wouldn't lay flat on the floor because of the shiny rubber bottom that covered the empty space in the body of this riser (it looks like something Trinity from The Matrix would accessorize with, maybe as a 50 round mag holder?). But once this part is removed, the pedal lays flat and the riser is usable. I just had to adjust spurs and find the right position for the pedal so that the beater is at a 90° angle to the bass drum head.
So great but it seemed kind of empty and fragile with all that space exposed. So I cut up a paint stirring stick from Home Depot into four parts: three to cover the bottom and one as extra bracing (which I had to route out a little using a Dremel with router attachment) for the footplate part. I filled the empty spaces with 3M Bondo All Purpose Putty, stuck on three wooden sticks, and sanded it. Then I epoxyed the fourth piece in place with clamps and sprayed with black paint.
Maybe all that wasn't necessary but Dixson has a lot more "integrity" now. It's much heavier, substantial and definitely stronger. If you try this, just FYI the Bondo stuff dries VERY quickly once you stir in the hardener. Just stir it a couple of seconds and stuff it in there.
My only other complaint is that the fuzzy Velcro strip attached where the bass drum lays is not at all easy to remove. I wanted to change it for the rubber strip to get a little extra height but it's too hard to remove. And it's not even stuck on there straight (so much for "Made In The USA." Maybe my Dixson was returned like that and just sent back out???). It would've been much better if I was given the OPTION of which strip to stick on there. Finally, I peeled the hooky Velcro part from Trinity's rubber thingy and stuck that on my bass drum so it's easier to find the right place for the pedal.
I guess it works pretty well now but hey, what should I expect for $40? Something that works out of the box? Nah, too easy.
Very stable with no creep forward. No issues at all. Oh, and the projection is a bit increased. Definitely a louder 18 inch kick. Sounds great, feels great. A simple solution for me, and overall all worth every penny. Is it a "$40 piece of plastic" as I've read elsewhere? Well, yes, but it's solid as hell and will probably prove to be indestructible.
In short, replace your clamp on riser with this and you will be happy.
The pedal clamps to the lip of the lift, which then is placed under the drum, just passed the edge of the bass drum hoop.
Some folks have reported issues with their pedal stroking into the bass drum rim, but I had none of those issues with my 20" Bass drum.
The only potential issue I encountered was that if I really lay into playing the bass drum (and I mean romp on it pretty much as hard as I've ever played), the drum may rock up a little. I mean, a VERY slight "little". I only mention this because it may be an issue for some folks. It didn't affect playability in the least.
My band mates commented instantly at the difference in sound. My Bass usually sounds pretty good, but this really seemed to give it some oomph, but as the old disclaimer states "individual mileage may vary".
Overall, I think it's a great product and would definitely recommend it to someone.
