My favorite pad!

The red storm has always been my favorite pad. It feels great. Not too easy, not too hard it’s perfect.

Corrected Review

For some reason I hit only one star in my original review of the Red Storm practice pad. That was completely incorrect! The Red Storm is, by far, the best pad I own. I literally take it with me everywhere so I'm never without the ability to work my hands. Highly recommended!!

Dan Helm
Nice, soft rebound pad

This is a very quiet pad with a pleasantly soft rebound, ideal for rope tension or mylar feel drumming. I’m very pleased!

Better than expected

This pad is very well built and feels great to play on….I’ve owned most other pads available and all are crap compared to this one. Also, it was neatly packaged in a nice box when it arrived…..these guy’s know what they’re doing…..worth every cent. Thanks!!

Amazing all around pad

I love that it has two sides. The soft side is pretty quiet and good for chop building. Amazing pad!
