Hello! I'm new here and new to drumming. I started taking lessons about 5 months ago and I'm now involved with a local Pipes and Drums band, playing snare.
I have a Remo tunable practice pad but recently was lent a Pro-Mark XPAD. I seem to play better on the XPAD. Not sure if I can just hear it better or what.

I'm looking for practice pad suggestions. I've seen the Perfect Practice Pad ad and videos and I have sent several emails to the guy, but he has not responded.
I also saw the Invader pad, but it seems a bit pricey.

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks,

Erik

"Rad Pads" are a good product, mine has been glued to a piece of wood, as they come as just the rubber, and i really enjoy playing it. The Andante pad, and other TG pads are also good, and the TG ones provide you with a range of hardness to play with, the harder the rubber, the hared you have to work to make your sticks move therefore the better it is for your drumming.

Invader V3 is also a good pad, very different to most pads on the market. Their new shuttle pad (smaller version of the v3) is also very good.
