Wrong product

Dear AJ,
We would like to clarify that you did receive the correct product as stated in description and images featured on our website at the time of your order. Your order for a 12" Midnight Vortex Pad received on August 29, 2023 and then delivered on August 31, 2023 featured the same design and Midnight Vortex surface pictured on our website at the time of your order. In addition, the product description stated all the details featuring our Duraguard Edge banding with a UH MDF wood base along with our Black Midnight Vortex Surface which is the same product that you received. We appreciate your understanding and wish you the best with your drumming endeavors.
Thank you for choosing our Midnight Vortex series and practice proud!
All the best,
Team Prologix

Practice Pad Review From Andrew Pearson.

Truly five stars! The pad is perfect for my practice. I must commend you on the packing too. The packing of the pad is very impressive: the delivery was timely, and without a hitch, even on the lowest charge for delivery. This has been true for all the pads I have purchased from you. Thanks, yours with warm regards, Andrew.

Love it!

Pretty good

Construction seems high quality, with premium materials, but there is hardly any difference between the two playing surfaces. Both are fairly stiff and loud, there is no softer/quieter option like with a gum rubber pad. For this price, I did expect there to be a noticeable difference. Other than that, I'm very happy with it. The 12-inch size perfectly sits on top of a 14-inch drum and is heavy enough that it doesn't bounce around much, even with heavy hitting. The raised edge for rimshots is a nice touch. It is very fun to play on!

Very Happy! Great Construction and Design

Been very happy with my new prologix practice pad. It plays well and is pretty cool looking. Great value for the cost and quality.
