Default Drum rug recommendations

Time for a new rug for the new kit I'm putting together. I've been using one of those rubber-backed industrial mats from Home Depot. It works alright, but my bass drum spurs tore through it relatively quickly, and I had to reinforce it with duct tape. It's also starting to tear in other places.

So I'm looking for something durable, relatively light in weight, black, and something that tape will stick to (to mark positions). Let me know what you got, and any pros and cons. Thanks.

If bass drum slippage is an issue for you even on carpet, make sure you get carpet with "loops" and not the straight kind. Your bass drum spurs will snag on it better.

Slippage isn't an issue on carpet if I have my spurs out. Problem is, my spurs rip through most carpets. Mapex spurs are sharp. That's why I was looking for something really durable. I just bought another industrial mat from Home Depot. I'll likely have to replace it in under a year, but whatever.

If you use a pedal with a base plate, adhere a large patch of velcro to it. That takes most of the pressure off the spurs, will stabilise your bass drum setup, & remove most of your rug wear.

That's likely what I'll have to do.

As others have mentioned here, I've found that the rugs at Walmart and Home Depot do the same job as designated "drum rugs" from known drum companies. Save your money and get whatever has a friendly price tag attached to it.

I just ended up getting a rubber-backed industrial mat from Home Depot. I was just putting the feelers out to see if there was something better out there that was under my radar.
