no pad hands, no problem


When I was younger I used a tan real feel while working through my drum corp obsession. I always noticed how sluggish my hands felt after getting on a real drum after a week with a pad. "I was just shedding these cheeses and now they're awful!" After some research I found that a number of players experienced this and took to calling it "pad hands". Those same forums were busy with chatter about this pad and so I bought the 1st generation. Problem solved. I've since gone to school for classical and I now freelance on kit often. This thing is invaluable. I feel like ever drummer / percussionist ought to own one. Way better than any real feel, vader, VF, or similar type of pad.



Expensive, but worth every penny.


I march a high school snareline, and this pad feels almost exactly like a real drum. This pad was a great investment, and good for the rudimental snare. I wouldnt reccomend this pad to someone who is just learning because it is very expensive for a beginner, but if you play on a line or do solos, this pad all the way.

Never needed to buy another Drum Pad


I am the Senior Drum Captain at the Thomas Jefferson High School Blue and Gold Regiment Drumline myself and my co-captain both use this pad all the time and cannot get enough of it. When we have down time in school, during lunch, after school and during rehearsals we always pull out these Pads and just go to town and in the three years since we've had them our quality of sound has increased, our technique is phenomenal and we are proud to say that we will be marching with the 2012 Bluecoats Drum and Bugle Corp out of Canton, Ohio. This pad is a must have for ALL Marching Snare Drummers (Traditional, Military, Showstyle, etc.) buy it and you will not be disappointed.
