drum-tec diabolo 18" Bass Drum: The quiet and compact Mesh Head Kick with incredible feel and classy acoustic design!

  • Authentic feel thanks to the unique Real Feel Bass Drum System (the high-end trigger system from the drum-tec pro series).
  • Significantly more quiet than other bass drum trigger systems (with maximum feel!):
    The impact energy is absorbed by the internal damping system. This significantly reduces the impact sound (see demo video linked above)
  • Exclusive acoustic design: The red sparkle lacquered birch wood shells provide the perfect symbiosis of nature and technology.
  • Ready for the stage: The diabolo bass drum doesn't just look good in the living room! The great design and high-quality workmanship makes it a great choice for professional use
  • Made in Germany! We carefully manufacture by hand - you can meet our instrument makers

E-Drums, Made in Germany: How the high-quality diabolo Bass Drum is made!

The diabolo Bass Drum is not a mass product from some factory. Our e-drums are handmade in our workshop in Hessisch Oldendorf, Germany.
(After completion your floor tom will be signed on the inside by our instrument maker).

Special care is required for natural products: Because the birch wood shells are working, the trigger system of your floor tom will be perfectly matched to your shell by our instrument maker. This careful process ensures that your diabolo Bass Drum can reliably master all challenges together with you for many years.

We have been building high-end e-drums since 2006 and know from experience which materials are particularly durable and how a professional trigger system has to be configurated. With the diabolo Bass Drum false triggers, double triggers and dropouts are a matter of the past!

Your dynamics are reflected by the trigger system, true to your playing. Even your most virtousic patterns are triggered with ease!

Real Feel made tiny: The compact diabolo bass drum is compatible with many drum racks!

Take your electronic drum set to a new level: The diabolo Bass Drum features the unparalleled Real Feel Bass Drum System from the drum-tec pro series. This does not only make the diabolo Bass Drum feel authentic, it is also much more quiet than other electronic bass drums and therefore perfect for practicing at home.

With its 18" diameter, the diabolo Bass Drum fits under most typical (e-) drum racks. Even with a ground clearance of 49cm, the bass drum can be comfortably integrated without the center cross-bar of your rack coming into contact with the bass drum.

You are not sure if the bass drum fits into your e-drum set? Below you will find all dimensions, even in assembled state.

Double Bass Demo: Relentlessly sovereign triggering

Perfect triggering results: Finally, no more false triggers or dropouts. The diabolo Bass Drum is relentlessly honest!

Tired of playing around your trigger system because of double triggers and dropouts? Those days are gone: the Real Feel Bass Drum System faithfully relays every impact to your module. You can always be sure that you hear exactly what your feet are doing.

And not only that: the fabulous feedback of the trigger system makes the diabolo Bass Drum incredibly dynamic to play. But watch out: It's addictive!

Two-ply mesh head: The real feel bass drum system is designed for our design mesh heads!

Wait, what? real feel bass drums are not equipped with Real Feel mesh heads? That's right! Many e-bass drums from other manufacturers can be significantly upgraded with our 3-ply real feel mesh heads. However, our high-end trigger system only requires 2-ply mesh heads!

With the diabolo Bass Drum, the Real Feel effect is already built in. Our trigger system itself already feels incredibly authentic. A 3-ply mesh head does not add any further improvement. In fact, the third layer would just be unnecessary resonating ballast.

Instead, we use our 2-ply design mesh heads. Since we have reduced the layers to a minimum, there are no double triggers due to free-swinging mesh head layers.

The best thing is to see for yourself! Our demo video for the Metal Sound Edition for the Roland TD-17 shows you impressively that our trigger system also masters double bass grooves without any problems:

Durable & Versatile: This bass drum does it all!

You want to play a special beater, but have heard discouraging stories of tearing mesh heads? The Real Feel Trigger System already protects your Mesh Head from wear and tear. Combined with the pre-mounted Protection Dot, the already durable design mesh head becomes pretty much indestructible.

Maintenance-free: The damping cushion of the trigger system not only supports the superior feel. Due to its special composition, it does not become porous and does not need to be replaced.

Can I connect the diabolo Bass Drum to my sound module?

The diabolo Bass Drum is compatible with all e-drum modules! If your module has a single input for bass drum triggers, then you can take full advantage of the diabolo Bass Drum.

It doesn't matter if you prefer Roland, ATV, Pearl, Yamaha, Alesis, 2box, ... or other sound modules, using the diabolo Bass Drum is as easy as can be: plug it in and have fun!

Awesome Combo

I am so happy with the diabolo real feel bass drum on my Alesis Strike.
It looks fantastic and it plays even better than I expected.
It makes the original kick feel like I’m kicking plank.
Much less leg fatigue and it’s the most silent part of the kit.
Together with the Roland hat, it has brought the kit alive.
I enjoy playing it much more now.

AMAZING BASS DRUM

I Bought this bass drum few days ago and I've to say that's really good bass drum. It's works great and is very pleasant to play. Great build, well packaged. Customers services is excellent. Thanks to Matthias and Markus for their support! Five stars!

J'ai acheté cette grosse caisse "Diabolo" il y a quelques jours et je dois dire que je suis très satisfait de cette acquisition: La grosse caisse est tout d'abord magnifique: On est plus en présence d'un simple pad mais bel et bien d'un superbe élément de batterie acoustique à part entière équipé de très bons triggers. La jouabilité et la réponse sont excellentes . Merci à Matthias et Markus d'avoir pris le temps de me conseiller.

Hallo miteinander,
will mich auf diesem Weg nur mal kurz bedanken für die supermegaschnelle Lieferung meiner neuen Diabolo silver sparkle Drumpads.
Habe mir soeben noch als Snare eine gebrauchte 12" Diabolo bei Euch bestellt.
Bin mehr als begeistert von der absoluten top Qualität. Megageil ist die silver sparkle Lackierung. Kann es kaum erwarten Mitte Mai meine neuen Pads meinen Musiker-Kollegen zu präsentieren. Die haben mich schon seit längerem wegen meiner Roland Pads aufgezogen. Hatten auch recht damit. Das Auge hört ja schließlich mit.
