There are so many practice pads available for the percussion student! Why? No one knows… I guess you could ask that about any musical accessory. Think how many reeds, mouthpieces, drumsticks, drumheads (etc…) that are available. There is something for everyone. But, how does a student percussionist or percussion methods student know which pad to purchase? Not to worry, I can help. I have split this topic into two videos. Today’s video covers rubber practice pads.

In this episode, I talk about the bdl Percussion Pad, The Real Feel Pad and the Destiny Pro Pad. Please support these companies and check out their pads. (Full Disclosure: I endorse bdl Percussion Pads and Remo Practice Pads).
