  • Practice Drum Pad Recommendation

    Since Iím not a drummer, but have a 10 yr old who is, (with 2+ yrs experience), Iím looking to purchase a new practice pad for him.

    I was going to buy the CP-1R from Innovative Percussion as some of the other band members have this pad, but I have talked to several distributors who cannot get them from the dealer. And one said avoid it as itís too big and not suitable for a pipe band. He leaned towards an Outlander VML.

    Anyway, I realize there will be opinions all over the place, but curious if most lean towards a specific practice pad.

    I've dabbled in a bit of pipe band drumming and I absolutely love the Offworld pads. The pad is a bit louder, but very articulate. You also might look into a softer pad as well so that your son can practice most times of the day and/or night without driving you mad.

      Get the same pad all the other band drummers have. If they donít all,strive to convince them to all switch to the same.

        Unfortunately thatís not an option being itís a youth band and most kids have a variety of pads and several having the same ones.

        Might go with the Outlander VML, as the price is right and seems to be a Best Seller on a few drumming websites.

            Any of the Offworld pads made of "dark matter." I have an Invader V3, which is huge and heavy, but I love it. For a kid, I'd get one of the smaller ones. They're also about as bulletproof as you can get.
