Drums suffer from the "drag" applied by any object they touch (i.e.stands, hardware and even the floor or stage/drum riser)). Booty Shakers isolate and "decouple" your drums from those objects. They free your drum to produce a wider frequency range (deep lows and clear highs) even order harmonic content, and just an open beautiful sound. Sustain increases as well, with a natural even decay.
