Default Rudiment Pad

Hi guys I am currently looking for a rudiment pad and I need some advice. I don't want to make a rash decision and buy the first one I see, so I would like some recommendations.
I was looking at the website for Wembley Drum Centre and they have a pretty good range, so I'll probably get mine from there.

here's the link = http://www.wembleydrumcentre.com/?fu...=43&fromleft=1

I can't really afford to spend more than 20. Which one should I get?

Much appreciated
Dave

I'm sure any one of them will do the trick... but just don't get the Moongel one.

I am currently using the 10" Remo tunable one. I had a two sided pad before but it was killing my hands. Has to be old age. I would sit and play for an hour at a time and ended up in pain, so I bought the softer Remo one. I don't see where it is that tunable but it is much softer than my previous one.

A couple of my favs are the VF Heavy Hitter Stock Pad and the Petrillo P4 pad.

I found that HQ Practice pads give you the truest rebound and i love it. Improved my chops faster than any vic firth pad.

The heavy hitter is a gum rubber pad while the grey HQ realfeel is more like a sort of foam-ish rubber - the second is quieter but the first is more traditional I guess. I would recommend, if possible, something with two surfaces - rubber and neoprene ideally - so that you can work both strength and bounce reflex.

Note: the Remo tunables are pretty accurate, BUT are almost as loud as a regular drum!!

Personally, I hate the Remo tuneable ones. Stay away from that volume and lack of durability.

I suggest the RealFeel, I have one and they are very nice. Go for the two sided for variability of rebound.

The two sided RealFeel is the one that I have. It seems to me that "side A" has more rebound than an actual snare drum. These days I've been using the other side.

I know that they market it as as side to build endurance; they say to give you a " workout."

I just find it to actually be a more realistic rebound. Anyone else ?

I have the Pat Petrillo P4 Pad..It's got 4 pads on the same side with different types of rubbers..and its cool to move around on, like a drum kit.

I got it off his site. Not sure which shops, if any , carry it..

I would get on which will fit on your snare drum snuggly, like a the Real Feel pad. You have a better experience with something like that which trnslates into more time practicing.

Yeah, for a drumset snare the black side is definitely more realistic, but the grey (or tan on the old ones) gum rubber side is nice if you ever do any marching - it emulates those high tension snares well.

i have the vic firth heavy hitter stock pad.
i think the rebound is fairly acurate for a drumset snare.
its not as soft as the 2 sided but it is still softer than the remo tunable one.

btw dont get the remo ones theyre loud and dont have a good feel.

if youre looking for a pad with a rim try the sabian real feel.
i plan on getting one pretty soon.
