An extreme resistance practice pad designed to intensify your practice routine and develop power during warm-ups, backstage, or in your home studio.
I would say this is the premier practice pad out there. Very high quality & durable material.
I love how this thing makes you work on your chops by absorbing every hit. The rim is super useful and fun to play with too. Quality and design are top notch!
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.
Couple with the Hardimon hammers from VF and you have a true chop builder combo.
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.
