Re: Pad with similar feel to Mike Johnston's Ghost Note Pro?
Is it the actual feel of the pad or the little bar to aid with keeping your strokes low that most appeals about this pad?
If none are readily available you may be able to make your own. Just identify what sort of rubber/neoprene is being used for the actual playing surface and buy any old pad that offers the same feel and response. Then it's just a matter of rigging up a makeshift ghost note guide and you're good to go.
As a side issue, there's definitely attitude in your response mate....whether you wanna accept that or not. Pretty much everyone on this board tries their best to help, Kona is no different. My advice is be thankful for it.....even if it's not necessarily exactly what you were hoping to hear.
