Gorgeous/stylish Nothing that I can find, really.
Loads of fun!!
Over the years I have had or tried several different types of practice pads. I was recently looking for a new practice pad and ran across this one here on Amazon. I was intrigued by the "two sides-two feels" claim, and after reading some of the reviews decided to give it a try. It arrived quickly and was well packaged. I immediately pulled out my Tama Roadpro snare stand and gave it a try. I was in love from the very first paradiddle. This pad is very well made, looks great and seems as though it will hold up well over time. It is sturdy and weighs just enough to be stable sitting on the table instead of my stand.
The two sides: The grey or gum rubber side has a slightly textured surface, is very quite and offers excellent rebound. The black side has a firmer feel to it. It is definitely louder than the grey side and offers less in the way of rebound. I like this side when practicing rudiments as the lack of rebound really makes you work at it.
I would recommend this practice pad to any drummer. I would highly recommend this pad to anyone looking for a quiet way to practice and beginning drummers.
I'm a bit torn about the 'two-sided' aspect of this pad however. One side is the practice pad and the other side, which is described at neoprene, just seems to me to be a cork-like backing that functions to hold the pad stationary as you beat on it. However, I see that another review uses just that hard black side, which goes to show you that I still have a lot to learn about drumming. I guess I'll try the black side next time!
I recommend this pad due to it's size and usefulness. I do not have it mounted on anything, I just put it on a table or my lap or a footstool.
The ReallFeel is quite quiet and feels great. The sound is soft and is much quieter then the rubber pads on my TD11K. It has a very nice rebound and as the name suggests - it has great feel to it. I don't have an accoustic drum set (never played one either) so I cannot atest to the "Real" in the name.
Highly recommended. It is quite heavy and sturdy. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!
I bought it since I saw many recommendations and yes it is truely worthy.
