Nah, “serious” and “musician” were qualifiers

Are they used by non-Scottish style drummers? Or are they a practice chanter adaptation to be able to play along with practice chanter practice?

Would a kit drummer use one? Or are we just talking snare lines here?

There are practice pads for many - if not most - western percussion instruments, including keyboard instruments like marimba and xylophone.

Set drummers, too, have practice pad versions of their sets.

Right, are there any practice instruments more involved than something you hit with a stick?

Well, one might say that anything is a drum*, so there really are no practice drums.

*Y’all have seen Xurxo Núñez featured playing on the sound equipment carrying case at Carlos’ shows, right? Does it all the time.
