    About KBrakes

    What are KBrakes?

    KBrakes are anchors for your kick drum spurs that have 512 stopping points that stop your kick drum from sliding, creeping and moving forward as you play. Drummers have been fighting against this problem for years, using things like tape, cinderblocks, even band members to keep their kick drum in front of them. Unlike other kick drum anchors KBrakes stay attached to your drum all the time. They have 180º rotation capabilities to allow them to fold flat as the drum is packed into it’s case. KBrakes are extremely durable, add zero weight to your drum kit and have one job to do and they do it better than any other drum anchor in the world.

    Why we created KBrakes?

    Frustration, Convenience and Confidence! Kick drum creep is something all drummers seem to face at one point. The problem happens when a bass drum is hit by the beater over and over again, this causes the drum to gradually move forward. You may have noticed this and thought, that's just what happens when you play hard. You may have tried things like placing a cinder block or sandbag in front of your bass drum. Or maybe you’ve tried things like harnessing your kick drum to your drum throne, or taping the drum spurs to the floor. Sometimes drummer play with just their spur spikes exposed. But still the problem persists as the bass drum can walk, hop or vibrate it’s way away from you.

    I can't believe it's taken all this time for someone to invent a Gibraltar SC-4402 competitor.  I'll have to look into these later.  I'm still contemplating a lightweight build.  The vintage Premier bass I had loved to walk away on me (hence I know about the SC-4402, which had to be welded to hold the spikes in place).  I'm sure the drum I have planned will be equally leggy.

    How did I know these things were going to cost $40 a pair?  Is it just me or does it seem anything new made of some type of plastic that comes along for drummers is $39.99? I just believe drummers are really taken advantage of when it comes to their wallets. I'm sure the things work but, $40 for some Delrin parts? Man. 

    For more than 20 years I've been using floor protectors (the little round or square things you place under furniture legs)  with velcro affixed underneath with some carpenter's Goop. Nothing slides on my rugs in all that time, especially if I use industrial velcro and just leave the things on the rugs when I roll them up.  I also fill the protector with silicone so the spur tips don't eat through the the plastic protectors. On floors, same deal, I just put pieces of slide control material under them, you know, the honey-combed stuff you put under rugs and things to keep them from sliding around. An even tougher type is what you place under pieces of wood to keep them from moving when you router all four edges and can't clamp it down. 

    All stuff I have around the house, anyway. If I had to buy it all outright ... $15? And I'd have enough stuff for more than one drum set and lots of other chores around the house.

    It's no wonder China is going to rule the world someday.
