Default Help needed, bass practice pad

Hi, I'm new to the forums...
Does anybody know where to buy a cheap bass practice pad ? (from any internet page)
I need it to practice with my twin pedals.

Here is the thing, I'm from Peru and can't afford one here....got a friend that's coming from the US next week so there's a close deadline to buy it, any help will do.

Sorry for my not so good English.

Buy a used yamaha or roland kick drum trigger. All of the actual bass drum practice pads I've tried are horrible, where these work great and don't cost that much. You can see mine in my practice set up here:

the gibraltar one is pretty good, it's got a big surface so that you can hit with 2 kicks easially

I have the Gibraltar bass drum pad too but I swapped out the pad for an old Remo pad; the "tunable" one that looks like a snare head.

The original pad stuck out probably nearly an inch (2.54cm) farther than my actual bass drum head, which was too much of an adjustment to get used to, so I switched to a head that didn't bow out so much. Works fine now.
