Default Re: a practice pad. but which one?

The HQ Real-Feels are excellent and made from materials that mimic the action of playing on an actual head quite well. I've had a standard 6" for about 14 years and it's all I've ever needed since. I went through a few earlier pads made of black rubber and while the feel was decent, the rubber tended to deteriorate over a short time. One even melted when I left in the car on a hot day! The surface materials used in the Reel-Feels are extrmely stable - feels the same as the day I got it.

i use a 12 inch reel feel, but i sorta regret buying it. its nice, the feel is great, but i enjoyed the pro mark pad better. it has beads at the bottom to make it sound like a snare, but its not loud at all, it just gives you a better feel.

Default Re: a practice pad. but which one?

ive got a tama TMP8S practice pad, which is basically a shell with a mesh head on it and no reso side head. It can be tightened like a regular drum, and its got a snare on it. It's a bit excessive, and quite pricey ($60), but it feels great. I personally got it for $15 from a friend who was moving and didn't want it anymore.

Feel, rebound, volume, texture and durability are a few of the differences I can think of right now.

Cool, so I assume from what you stated that there are different kinds of pads for different types of workouts. Neat!

I have two, the 6" HQ double-sided and the Vic Firth 6" practice pad. Both are excellent from my experiences so far. They're both quiet and have good feel to them...

Definetely. I used to use the loud Remo pad, but stwitched to the Evans HQ Real Feel for its quietness. Only thing is that the Remo pads feel a lot more like real drums than the gum rubber side and hard neoprene sides of the Real Feel. And definetly get the bigger sizes of practice pads than the 6 inches. The 12's are the best.

MAKE YOUR OWN!

i did it, and it would of been amazing if i didnt cheap out and grab a hunk of wood from the home depot reject bin. its warped, so i have to reglue the gum rubber periodically, and i havent bothered to go get new materials.

materials: gum rubber (1/4" is pretty standard, but vf heavy hitters go thinner)
any other type of rubber (open celled for grip like the heavy hitters, or neoprene or somthing)
some sort of wood or particle board (make sure its not warped!)
gorilla glue

gorrila glue and wood is easy. go to a hardware store. rubber is another story. here in portland i have what used to be portland rubber but its now more of a conveyor belt place. they have all kinds of rubber except open cell. making your own pad has been catching on up here in the north, so when i ask for such a small amout (about a foot, ended up with a foot and a half), he asked about practice pads and just let me have it for free cause that is such a small amout to what they usually deal in (it would have been $7).

if you find a flat peice of wood in a scap bin somewhere, its probably free (make sure its flat) and the gorilla glue is under $5 i think, but you wont use even an eighth of the bottle and its great stuff for everything.

so, in total, my practice pad cost about 20 cents (what ever the glue added up to), and works great minus the ocasional reglueing issue of having a warped peice of wood. the best part is i can customize it anyway i want. thicker gum rubber:quieter, softer feel neoprene: work out open cell rubber makes for a great underside so the pad doesnt slide.

ps. has anybody tried the scojo dynasty pad yet? it makes a quiet snare sound somehow. i was wondering if these things are all hype or something.

Default Re: a practice pad. but which one?

Making your own is not a bad idea! However, if you want to get a commercially made one, here's what I would suggest: Real Feel by HQ percussion. I've had the same pad (12") for years now and it's worn very well with age. If you play brushes, get the 12" double sided model. Or, if you want, you can cut a circular piece of corrugated cardboard and rest it on your snare drum for brush practice.
Don't get a Remo. They're way too loud and you have to replace the head, not to mention if you hit too hard you'll crack the plastic rim.
So, as you can see, there are plenty of options available. Have fun woodsheddin'!

i love the HQ Reel Feel better than the Remo practice pads the Remo are RIDCULOUSLY loud of a practice pad compared to a HQ ... HQ's are quiet feel amazing and have a close resemblance to a snare in terms of bounce

I was going to but they never got back to me (reply).

I eventually got a Billy Hyde 'natural rebound' pad. It's not natural, but the very bouncy feel helps, as it really teaches to utilise the rebound, because there is so much, it's damn near impossible not use it. Good pad, but really loud.

Default Re: Practice Pads

So i just picked up the real feel pad then, gotta say i am a bit dissapointed, its not much different to my little orange pad at all, and the 'workout' side i dont think ill use. (Is that side meant for muscle strenthening?) I had to order it in, but its the new black one.1
1 - Orange is better than black, its a happy color. :-)
2 - Yea its not that much different to my other orange pad.
3 - You cant use brushes on it. Which is why i want to know really if they are any different from the orange cause its not quite the material i thought it would be made of. (i know hauk already said he doesnt think so, but i would like to know) IIn the Weckl vids it looks like a shiny material and it sounds different too. Does anyone ever use the 'workout' side, is it just for muscle strenth?(This side is very loud as well, its just like playing on a table.)

Default Re: Practice Pads

Okay, so this question is still open. What's a good really, really quite practice pad? I'm not looking to do rim shots or brushes, just rudiments & stick control. Of the ones mentioned above, it doesn't sound like there are any winners yet. I have the old grey 12" Remo practice pad which is loud as hell. My kids can hear in when I'm in the basement with the door closed and they are two floors above me. So, I typically practice on a pillow at night, but that doesn't really cut it for stick control.

I know they are out there because I've seen them in the distant past. Really quite ones that were black rubber. I don't know about all the new stuff...

Anyone, anyone, anyone???....

Default Re: Practice Pads

Murphinelli, is your pad from the distant pad one of those old ludwig ones? - a metal sort of frame and a circular rubber pad in the middle?

Those are neat! -but you can't buy 'em anymore unless you spot one on e-bay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-Ludwig-D...QQcmdZViewItem

Personally, I like my Real-feel pad and I don't see much difference from one rubber pad to another. I just like a large enough pad so you can put it in a snare drum stand, or, even better, sit it right on top of a snare drum for just a little sound. I think Vic Firth makes a similar rubber pad.

I rarely use the dark side -I guess that makes me like a jedi- but I like the weight it gives to the pad, makes it not move at all if you just put it on a flat surface to practice.

Also, I have a gibralter pad-set:

http://www.gibraltarhardware.com/?fa...sid=141&cid=35

I used to work in a music store that had one and I'd always mess around on it. ...so I bought one and now it tides me over because my wife and I live in a condo and so I don't get to play on any of my real drums these days ouside of when I'm with my teacher, which bites the big one, but, hey, you do what you gotta do. IMO that's the best feeling bass drum pad on the market too.


Both are 'library quiet'

Also, my teacher buys 13" or so disks of raw rubber and just sells them to his students for what he paid -just a few bucks- because those reel feel pads are pricey. You have to make your own base for it and glue it on, but they have a really, really nice feel to them -somehow a little different than other rubber pads. I keep meaning to make a base and buy one, but I'm lazy.

wow, I can't believe I wrote a book on that. ...what can I say, it's friday afternoon ...I don't want to be at work anymrore.

Me neither, and I'm just about to make like a tree and leave...(bu-bump-bump).

Thanks for the feedback on the pads. If you say "library quiet" I believe you. I'll try one of those out maybe. But maybe I'll try what your friend does and look for something like that. Home Depot must have some big thick rubber thing for something.

My old pad is just a plastic gray circle with a remo ambassador coated head in the middle. I'm sure you've seen them. It can mount to a stand also. But way too loud.

I used to have a big rubber disk that went over the Ludwig student snare. That was great, but I lost it.

Anyways, thanks again.

Cheers,
Murph

Default Re: Practice Pads

To people with the Real Feel pad, what side do you use more? I use the main side way more, but im thinking whichis actually better for me to use, the side that has a bit more rebound that a snare would, or the side that has a little less rebound than a real snare, even though the 2nd side is louder, im thinking that would be better?

EDIT - Man just did a tiny bit of reading and i take all back about the real feel, it is a great pad.

Default Re: Practice Pads

Maybe just to clarify some things so people dont have to read it all. From all the information...

Best Single Pads seem to be
-Real Feel Pad - The double sided is a good idea-
-The RTOM pad, this is very quiet, pretty sure the quietest out there.
-The Vic Firth Pad is also a good one, but very similar to the real feel and a little bit more $ i think
-Then there are the 'other' pads like the xymox pads, and the promark etc
One of the top 3 is best, but again personal prefrence

-For Bass drum the Gibralter kick pad is the best

Best Pad Sets seem to be
-Get a collection of pads and the gibralter bass pad, and your set.(I have done this, and i think is the better way because you can get different pads with different feels to imitatae the different feels of a kit
-Just the bass pad and one of the single pads, if for you just want to do some stick control etc
-The DW is very portable and seems to be a great choice
-The REMO pad set is louder but they are ok, obviously with the rack there are more positioning availability etc
-the GIBRALTER pad set is bery good to, and is also highly recomended

Out of the sets, the DW and GIBRALTER kits are the best but then dont ask out of those two cause i think it has been prooven that personal prefrence is what wins through here, eg how your heads are tuned etc which one has the closer feel to YOUR real kit.

Default Re: Practice Pads

Hey Guys, we've been working on pad designs for many years and at this point I feel we've achieved the closest-to-kevlar feel and articulation with the INVADER by way of it's new playing surface. I've posed this question on a couple of different forums. We'd appreciate any feedback players on many levels have on these units, check out the website, watch the video and let me know what you think!

Choice of pad depends on a lot of factors.

Is it just for quiet practice or is it mainly about portability,

I have a Real Feel pad and it has a bit of extra bounce, which mentioned before isn't necessarily a bad thing for a beginner getting used to rebound. The other side has less bounce, but is also a lot louder. Remedy for both issues for me has just been laying an old t-shirt or towel over the pad. You can adjust rebound to our liking and it makes it completely quiet.

For REAL feel the old Remo pads are the best I know of.
