Although the product website has a cheesy explanation on how your bass drum can benefit from this item, there are tangible reasons to use one of these: 1. Isolation: when your bass drum is touching the floor, vibrations are transmitted through the floor, which affect how your bass sounds. This lift isolates it (think of tom suspension mounts) so that the bass not only projects better, it is clear from dampening effects from the floor. Your snare rests on a stand with rubber claw tips and your floor tom legs have rubber feet, so it should be natural to isolate your bass drum. 2. Beater positioning: when you have a double pedal's slave beater hit off center, its rebound and feel is different, making the difference between master and slave pedal feel even greater. This solves that problem. 3. Wear reduction: mounting pedals onto bass drum hoops gradually causes damage. It is cheaper just to buy one of these than to order replacement hoops (there are some affordable hoops here, but they are unfinished). By using the lift, the rear of your bass drum isn't resting against the floor while the front is being pushed up by spurs, further reducing stress on the drum and hoops. The attachment of the pedal to the lift reduces the amount of direct force going into the drum. While this product is good, it is rather expensive for a piece of plastic of simple construction. The inside of the lift has hollow chambers which I believe help reduce weight and perhaps reduce dampening effects. Hopefully the price will drop if these become adopted by more drummers. If you stuff your bass drum with pillows, this item will still help your drum, but you should remove your pillows to hear any sort of benefit.
