Remo makes pads that screw onto dedicated Remo pad stands. But, I don’t think the stands are being made any longer and Remo threading doesn’t match most cymbal stand threading. I found a used Remo pad stand from a local shop, and it’s great! But, I really don’t like the Remo Silent Stroke pad I bought to go with it, and the traditional Remo pad, although it has a good feel, is much louder than a rubber pad.How good or bad are these..
I like the kind that can screw onto an old vintage cymbal stand- for maneuverability (instead of (sitting in) bulky snare stand)
The Evans RealFeel 12" practice pads feature a gum rubber playing surface. Evans practice pads are the most popular option available, providing the best practice substitute to an acoustic drum.www.daddario.com
yea can't screw that on an old 1400 cymbal stand; no good ;
I have the red Vader 12” two sided pad sitting in a snare stand. I give it a B+. Soft rubber on one side, hard rubber on the other. The hard rubber is pretty realistic, but, a bit louder than the soft side.Looking to get a new practice pad. Preferably one that I can put in a snare stand. Any recommendations?
I want to try one of those! I use a Remo pad now. I don't think I want any pad that has no rim. Rimshot dynamics are pretty crucial, and more difficult (for me) than regular sticking dynamics.I recommend the Sabian Quiet Tone Classic QT-14SD. Uses a real drum head (coated)
Sits on a drum stand or just a drum and you can play with sticks or brushes.
I have one of these as well. Love the sound on top of a snare with wires on; fun to use with a Z L80 cymbal set. Haven't used it much, good that you mention wear, I like to use my sticks for quite a while. Maybe sand the coating down a bit?Not a fan of the Sabian quiet tone pad. It wears down the tips of the sticks.
