Amazing product that delivers on everything advertised!

At first I had some hesitation about this practice pad as I was worried it would be too little rebound for a practice surface. However, I decided to buy it based on reviews and videos I had found. I'm incredibly pleased with everything about this practice pad. The amount of rebound is not too much or too little in fact it feels like playing on a low to medium low tuned drum. I prefer this because for me going from a very bouncy practice pad back to a real kit sometimes messed up my touch. As for volume this thing has been a lifesaver for late night practice. No one in my house can hear me playing this pad if I'm in my room and they've turned the corner out the door even when I have the door open. Closing the door and practicing has allowed me to pretty much practice silently at any hour. Of course keep in mind that I'm talking about practicing at a reasonable dynamic level. If I really hit it as hard as I can it will be audible. Overall I love this product and for the last few days it's taken over as my main practice pad.

Love it too!!

Couple with the Hardimon hammers from VF and you have a true chop builder combo.

Love it!

All of us want to play at 200bpm. On a good day I have hit 140bpm. I owe it to this pad. Not only the resistance, but it is quiet too. When I get to 180 it will be time to replace it with a new one.

Loving this pad!

I recently bought this pad along with the Blue Lightning, and struggling to decide which one is my favorite.
The less rebound on the Blackout makes for a great workout and I would strongly recommend this to anyone who's considering buying it!

Amazing chop builder!

I’ve been using the 8” pad for a couple of weeks now and I feel like I have much better strength and stamina when I sit down behind the drum set. Perfect for building chops, and its very quiet! I will be buying more!
