Brief History of the MultiBass:

Morris Palter, Black Swamp Percussion artist

The MultiBass, introduced to the market in 2012, emerged from a collaborative effort with Morris Palter, an esteemed BSP Artist. Morris, much like numerous percussionists, was in pursuit of a bass drum that could seamlessly adapt to his multifaceted performance requirements. It wasn't merely about creating a drum that was innovative and well-designed; it also needed to offer user-friendly functionality while delivering an exceptional sound. These qualities are emblematic of both Black Swamp Percussion's commitment to excellence and the exacting standards set by Morris Palter.

Height Adjustable Legs:

The first standout feature of the MultiBass Drums is their unique design featuring three lightweight telescoping legs directly attached to the shell. This innovative construction allows for hassle-free transport and rapid setup. With adjustable heights ranging from approximately 20 to 44 inches, performers can effortlessly customize the drum's position to suit their specific needs. Gone are the days of struggling with snare stands and folding chairs – embrace unparalleled control and versatility with Black Swamp Percussion's MultiBass Drums.

Low Profile Wood Hoops:

Custom die-cast mini lugs seamlessly blend with the classy arch-style lugs on the shell, ensuring a sleek and professional aesthetic while maximizing playability.

Premium Construction and Sound:

Crafted from five-ply maple shells with custom bearing edges, Black Swamp Percussion's MultiBass Drums deliver a rich, warm, and punchy sound that stands out in any performance setting. Available in diameters ranging from 18 to 24 inches and featuring a 16-inch depth, these drums cater to diverse spatial and tonal requirements.
