"Black Swamp’s Multilegs are a real breakthrough for the problem of the bass drum laid flat. They are light-weight, sturdy and adjustable to any height or angle you might need and easy to attach to any size bass drum without damaging the rim. We have many sets at Oberlin and they are constantly in use for anything from History of the Soldier to Psappha and everything in between. No more rattling bass drums on chairs for us!"

Multilegs for Bass Drums
The Multileg is a simple and elegant solution for using your existing bass drum in a horizontal position. The lightweight telescoping legs clamp directly to the bass drum hoop, and adjust to your desired height and angle. Put away the chairs!
The Multileg was inspired by our landmark Multibass. You can use any bass drum you have and mount it at a flat or slightly angled position for use in multiple percussion setups. Our legs have distinct advantages over other products that do similar things:
The Multilegs are lighter and more compact, and are quicker to attach and detach.
A specially designed isolation leg tip retains more of the bass drum's lower frequencies.
Since the MultiLegs only clamp on the bottom hoop, you can tune the bass drum without removing them from the drum. This is especially important for vintage drums that use calfskin heads.
The Multileg is sold in sets of 3 legs - Model # MLEG3
Legs telescope in length from 15 to 33 inches
Fits Any Size Drum
If the drum has a wood hoop, it fits. It's easy to get your drum into any position you need. Place the Multilegs at an equidistant spacing around the hoop, then adjust for height and angle. Make sure you lift the drum to move so you don't damage the hoop.
Tune Without Trouble
Want to tune the drum? No problem, just go ahead and tune. Other products need to be removed or loosened first. A specially designed rubber isolation foot keeps your bottom end from escaping to the basement.
Smart, Easy Clamping
Rubber cushions on every contact surface prevents damage and keeps it securely on the hoop. Even the clamp knob is rubberized to keep it from scratching other drums that are nearby. You're right - we do think of everything!
