Default Best practice pad for orchestral feel.

I am looking for a new practice pad, but I do not play corps snares, and don't want a kevlar feel. I want the feel of a more traditional concert snare. what will work out best for that? I currently use a Vic firth double sided pad. Not bad, but always looking for better!

I like the RealFeel pad, too but there's still some difference in feel compared to a snare.

Probably the Sabian Quiet Tone snare drum/pad is the closest you can get in feel to a real snare because it is a chopped snare with an actual hoop and head so the playing feel is pretty close to the real thing.

The Sabian Quiet Tone has been discussed on this forum before, e.g. here:
