If you have ever had to set your kit up on on a hard, smooth floor, you’ll understand the frustrations of having your bass drum or hi-hats ‘creep’ away from you during your set. The obvious solution is to use a rug, but this is not always possible due to space - or the fact that you’ve forgotten it for the third gig in a row.

Enter the KickStrap, a simple yet potentially gig-saving accessory that promises to keep your bass drum anchored, even on a marble floor. One end of the adjustable, heavy-duty webbed strap hooks around your bass drum pedal, while the other end attaches to your drum stool. 

The KickStrap is available in either half-inch or quarter-inch plate thicknesses to suit any pedal
