Problem Fixed Quickly

The playing surface itself has an excellent feel. The rubber rim around the pad that is used for rimshot practice was not snug against the pad material. There is a visible air gap between the materials.

EDIT: Within hours of posting this review, I was contacted by Prologix and they happily offered to replace the product. They stand behind their products. I recommend doing business with this company. I now own two of their pads.

Perfect For The Practice Room and Lesson Studio

This is the pad that made me fall in love with Prologix Percussion and has been my favorite pad in the collection so far. I add the Blue Lightning practice pad to my drum set snare when I'm either wanting to practice quietly or work with students in lessons. I like to keep things low volume so students and I can better hear our sticking and articulations. The usual dampening pads for drum set are great, but the snare can still be too loud and also has a strange feel when using the provided snare pad. The Blue Lightning allows us to achieve great low volume reps with real feel. Students rave about not having a learning curve practicing new exercises on my kit to their home kits, and I couldn't agree more moving from practice mode to recording mode to live mode using this pad with the drum set!
