They really don't work too well on this pad. You can play them on the bouncy side, but the problem is they're too hard to hear. The bouncy side is very quiet, quieter than any of the other pads I've used. The dead side is actually quite a bit louder, but no way can you buzz on that surface.Do you do multiple bounce (buzz) rolls on it? If so, how do they sound? I'm a jazz/orchestral/musical theater player, and those rolls are EXTREMELY important to me. I have yet to hear anybody do those rolls on the pad.
