Default Danmar Kick Pad - Removal?

Just went on a quest to make my kick sound badass and picked up an Evans EMAD head and a Danmar metal kick pad. The kick pad sounds pretty good but just murders the feel of my drum. Anybody know a decent way of getting it off of there? I'd like to salvage my pretty new $30+ head if I can.

If you've access to one, use a steamer. Otherwise, you can probably remove it using a blow dryer. Once it's off, acetone (nail polish remover) will take the glue off..

3M also makes a decal remover and an adhesive remover, both in spray cans, to use once the pad is removed, but I would also try the blow dryer idea first before spending money on the 3M products.

Just make sure you don't melt the actual head.

...Acetone will dry out the mylar and will melt the adhesive leaving successive micro-fine layers to be scrubbed.

Here's a good use for WD40 and its related type (Wal-Mart SuperTech lube etc.) sprays. The oils and solvent in WD -40 will surround the adhesive and make it easy to remove, it won't harm the Mylar either, actually nourish it.
