    I've been playing for roughly 11 years now. When I started out, I had a Pearl practice pad, and it just didn't feel like a real drum. The Remo one was almost the exact same. I saw our marching percussion instructor with this one my Freshman year of high school, and decided to buy one myself! I am now 25, and STILL use it all the time! It helps build speed and strength, and you can also get a GREAT rimshot off of it. I've even decorated the rubber side with a sharpie, and it looks awesome! I absolutely love this practice pad, and would recommend it to anybody! I'm even getting one for my 11 year old nephew for his birthday this year!

    It seems to be good for practice, but what about the pad coming unglued already?

    Best Pad on the Market

    By the average Joe

    Comments about Evans RealFeel 2-Sided Speed and Workout Drum Pad:

    Amazing product. Best pad on the market today. It feels just like the old school gum rubber pads. Can't go wrong with this pad, or any Evans products.
    The grey, softer side gives a good feel for practicing your pieces and whatnot. While the black, harder side gives you the feel you need to build your chops and warm up.
    Feels just like the old school gum rubber pads.
    Phenominal.

    Works Just Fine!

    By Peter Ogden

    from Maryland

    Comments about Evans RealFeel 2-Sided Speed and Workout Drum Pad:

    I would certainly recommend this to somebody looking for a travel-convenient practice pad!
    I bought the smaller 6" unit because I take it with me when I have to travel for work so I can still pracrice my rudiments. It works great. Two-sided: one side bouncier than the other -- which is "louder". I use the louder side when working with my Dbl-Bass pedals. Overall, a really useful tool for serious drummers!
    Semms it will hold-up just fine.

    Buy This Now!!

    By Thudpaw-03qoz

    from Orlando FL

    Comments about Evans RealFeel 2-Sided Speed and Workout Drum Pad:

    I have had my HQ Real Feel pad (the old original style) since 1991 and there is NO sign of it dying on me any time soon. I have used this pad for almost EVERY other use besides practicing that you could think of (coaster, barrier between hot plate and my lap, rolling tray etc.), and it's still going strong. It is in the middle of it's 2nd deployment in Iraq, and has had no issues with the heat/sun exposure. I have dropped it countless times. No problem! It looks old, stickered up and drawn on, but it has the same great feel and responsiveness as when it was new. Workhorse!! Buy this now, and unless it is stolen or lost, you will have it for many many years to come. I can NOT say enough great things about this product!

    This = good

    By Patrick Andrae

    from NJ

    Comments about Evans RealFeel 2-Sided Speed and Workout Drum Pad:

    I just started drumming. I started by getting some sticks and banging on furniture. Then I got a snare drum. Well, that's a terrible racket if you can't drum very well so I got me one of these things. The grey side does have similar rebound characteristics as the snare drum. The black side also bounces but not as much. Drumming on this thing is very pleasant and I will get a lot of practice on my rudiments with how much fun it is. Sturdy little gadget. It would be able to mount it on something like my snare stand. Otherwise, this = good.

      I've used practice pads for 55 years and this is by far the best one I've ever used. it sounds good, feels good, just makes you want to practice. It is addictive. It is real heavy so it doesn't move around.

        Comments about Evans RealFeel 2-Sided Speed and Workout Drum Pad:

        Bought this along with the cute pink sticks for my 6 year old daughter for Christmas. She's watched me practicing and has been wanting to learn so... bam.
        I apparently have the older brother of this pad, bought it in college back in '02, and have used it intermittently over the years for practicing and teaching. I can speak for the brand as to how durable it is, and how well they hold up, especially since I did not baby that pad. It's currently decorated with sharpie and pen courtesy of my kids, and aside from being an eye sore on that side, works just as perfectly as the day I bought it.
        This is the perfect size for my daughter! My pad is very heavy, this one is light, and easy for her to carry! I know as she grows if she continues with playing the small size will help her as well with focusing on staying in the center of the head.
        I always laugh when people find out my daughter wants to play drums and a look of horror crosses their face. "Drums are so loud!"
        Yeah, okay. But you can practice quietly with drums on a great pad like this. The actual drum is not a necessity for getting your chops up, and I have practiced songs entirely on my pad and then moved to a drum only for the performance with no issues.
        One detractor in particular refused to allow her child to pick up drums and pushed them to flute instead. Within 2 weeks I got to hold in laughter while they complained about the misery of having a child learning to play a wind instrument.
        Anyway, great pad! I'll always recommend these pads for beginners and professionals and every level in between!

          LOVE LOVE LOVE this practice pad! Loved it the moment It got to my house. It's the perfect size for packing and playing during those lonnnngg car rides that we all dred. I love how quiet it is!! It's perfect too use at night as well as playing around those people who don't always want too hear the sound of drum (they're lame). The softer/lighter side is a tad quieter and the darker side is a little bouncy but honestly both are awesome too use. I like practicing rudiments on the darker side, it helps gain speed and control. I highly recommend this product!!!!!!!!!!

              Was sceptical at first ordering it from the US, to India. I was informed that the item will be shipped in 7-11 business days. Received package in 5 days. Product was securely packed and of high quality. I am very impressed with the feedback and rebound the pad offers.
              Seems to be built with high quality material. I would definitely recommend anyone who is looking to build speed or looking for a pad to practice their chops on. Big thumbs up to musiciansfriend for a hassle free and pleasant experience.

                I was blown away by the quality of this pad. It has two surfaces, so if you don't like one side, try the other. I love the feel of the "normal" gray side; it's exactly what I wanted. I ordered the 12" version which has incredible "heft" to it. I think it weighs about 5 pounds, which makes it sit perfectly on my countertop without any creeping. Since my old pad was only 5", this is truly a fantastic step up in ease of use and enjoyment. I urge everyone to buy the large model, you will be very happy you did.

                    I recently started drumming again after many years of not drumming. This gives me a great way to practice rudiments and reintroduce muscle memory. I like the two sides. One side is definitely more bouncy and the other less so. Good for traction on a flat surface when practicing. SO much better than the practice pads i grew up with!!

                      This pad rocks. It feels a lot like a snare snare and it's really easy to use. It doesn't make much noise so I can always practice and not disturb the neighbors. Although there are two sides, I prefer the lighter grey side. I don't find that the darker side has much of a difference besides that it is a tad louder and has a higher pitched hit, but both sides work excellent.

                      I bought this because my remo practice pad was too loud and woke up my roommates. Although a little pricey, this is a really great, quiet alternative to a louder remo pad. It's built very solidly and both sides have a great feel. One side bounces, and the other doesn't bounce as much. I would definitely recommend this pad to anyone. Definitely buy the 12 inch one, the 6 inch is just way too cramped.

                      This is a wonderful practice pad. This is just about the best pad for the money out there. I bought this pad to replace the vic firth heavy hitters practice pad and there is just no comparison to how much better this hq is to the vic firth one. I would definetely recomend this to any one.

                      This a great practice pad for marching band. It is quiet, or it can be loud. It is good for working out on. Makes a great gift! Does not break with rim shots. Great Buy!
