Bass Drum Port Holes

We can professionally install port holes in your bass drum head. You choose the type, size and placement of each bass drum port hole.

Port Hole Options

Having a drum port gives the drum better projection and more attack. You can easily add or remove dampening and quickly change your drum sound by having a ported bass drum head. We suggest installing a mic hole port if you play live or where a sound tech would need to mic your drum for recording. The most requested bass drum hole size is 4 inches because it works best with printed graphics. Try and keep bass drum holes 1.5 to 3 inches away from the hoop edge when creating your design.
