I use the Aquarian Pad quite a bit and Pat's P4 Pad which I like because of the multiple surfaces. I still have the square model but i'm hoping Santa will bring me the new
The Hydes model is just the 'old school' stock, standard rubber pad. Still have the one I bought over 20 years ago actually. But it's fair to say it doesn't even come close to any of the recent models and there is absolute daylight between it and the P4.Also, Hyde's sells there OWN practice pad....humm..
How about Frank Corniola!!? He's a great guy, and I think he would get it. I will send him an email, and maybe you can as well??
Thank YOU so much for believing in the P4 , and wanting to have it in Oz!
All my Best!
yes..also using brushes on a folded newspaper...there is no cheating..you have to clearly "whip" any fast stroke to make it sound like somethingA duck feather pillow is a great addition to any practice pad. If you can play it on that, you can play it on anything.
...and sometime you do get a deal.For the same reason why people drop that kind of coin on a Cadillac or a Lexus or a Mercedes, when they can just by a cheap Ford. You get what you pay for, my man.
Looks pretty neat. Too bad it was overlooked in this thread. I can see how that would be an ideal practice pad for some situations. I'm not too sure about the website, though.
Hopefully, I'll be getting the P4 along with a brand new Ludwig Epic for ChristmasThanks, Dip. Here is a video demo, for those of you who have NOT seen it yet..I'm proud of it, as it is beginning to gather alot of buzz and respect for it's uniqueness and educational value.
It's in the new MD under "New and Noteable", as well.
Many 5 Star dealers are beginning to order it, finally!
Yes I agree I like the Reel Feel best too...when i'm on the pad I want to give my ears a break with something quiet and I like the bounce also.I'd say the HQ Real Feel is the best drum pad...thats just my opinion. gives u great response, realistic bounce (feels like a snare drum), and its really quiet and doesn't disturb people in rooms next to you. plus they're pretty affordable.
