Bass Plate At NAMM 2012

Our favorite moments at the NAMM Show happen whenever we run into a first-time exhibitor unveiling his or her new invention in the hope of signing up key dealers. Such was the case with the Bass Plate, a bass drum hardware retrofit that allows users to position the pedal off center, in order to produce a greater variety of sounds. Will the Bass Plate gain traction in the marketplace? Well, it’s up to you folks to decide whether you can or can’t live without it.
