Default routing a bearing edge on drum shell

hi, I'm going to make my own drum and after creating the shell I'll need to create a 45 degree bearing edge. I am new to this so I need a little help. What type of router bit should I use for this. Would it be one called a chamfer bit or would it be something else?

Yes you have the right bit. The chamfer bit with a bearing will make the 45 degree on an irregular shaped edge.
