As a fan of practice pads, I must say that I have tried almost all of the ones on the market. reflexx, real feel, movement drum co, offworld, and almost all prologix. The Red Storm is the perfect practice pad that almost perfectly simulates a medium-tuned snare drum. It's practically like playing on a real drum. I haven't found another practice pad that comes as close to a drum as Red Storm does. Totally recommended for professionals and students.
