Remo Practice Pad - 06" Tunable - Product Information

PRACTICE PADS are a longtime staple for beginning drummers to serious students in college-level methods classes.

These tunable pads duplicate the tension and response of a real drum, but offer a "muffled" sound for quieter practice. This 6" PRACTICE PAD comes with a Coated AMBASSADOR drumhead housed in a high-impact gray plastic housing.

PRACTICE PADS have become so legendary because their use accentuates the intricacies of proper techniques. A major advantage of a PRACTICE PADS over an easier substrate is its impossible to distinguish between the all-important grace notes and principal notes on a softer alternative rendering the practice meaningless.

Preferred pads

Comments:

This style of pad - whether Remo brand, or another of similar design - is still the best available. REALFEEL-type gum rubber pads are useful for teaching beginners the feel of Legato rebounding strokes, or for experienced players to do a relaxed warmup. But that is all they are good for, because those pads actually rebound MORE than a drum does (which interferes with development of other techniques and their application to real drums), and because they are SO quiet that there is no dynamic response. The Remo-style pad is just a drumhead with a piece of muffling foam under it. The "tuneability" is minimal, but you can go for either a loose- or tight-head feel. It is loud enough to have dynamic response, so that students can learn to control their sound and develop both large and small strokes. Remember: drums are only loud if you play them loudly! Over time, the logo and drumhead coating will wear off, just like on any other drumhead. But who cares? You are not going to play brushes on this pad, so it doesn't matter. My 6" Remo pad is 30 years old, the plastic rims are chipped, the center of the pad is worn, but nothing is broken, it still plays great, and you can see the character it has earned from a life lived. I'd recommend going with the 6" size for four reasons: a smaller target makes kids learn better control (you won't even talk have to about it); it will have less "wobble-torque" on a stand; smaller pads are more portable; and even the largest pad is too small to practice brush playing, so you don't need the size. When using the 10" pad, it is more stable on a regular snare drum stand with the basket adjusted part-closed to fit; it just needs to be positioned where the rubber grips on the basket arms of the stand are not in the way of the sticks.

The standard

Comments:

The other reviewer has no idea what they are talking about. The tension/tuning is adjustable, it feels great, the head is replaceable. It will bring out your dynamics. This is the standard by which all other practice pads are measured!

go with a real feel

Comments:

HORRIBLE... remo logo rubs off and turns your tips black, then the skin chips and you find yourself with a big white hole in the center of the pad... go with the HQ or the VIC FIRTH REAL FEELS they are very nice, and they work better for practice... especially for a snare drummer
