I'm kind of dissapointed that Remo reduced the size of these... I had one from a couple years ago that was same material and larger, but seems you can't get that size anymore. Because of the reduced size and reduced allowance for margin of error, I recommend you locate and mount it with your pedal/beater in place... I spent a bunch of time measuring and marking to mount it in the EXACT center of my new bass drum head, and then didn't realize until later that my bass drum pedal/beater is actually offset slightly to the right due to the pedal design, (DOHH!!). Anyways, these protect your head from wear, but they also change the sound slightly, (for the better in my opinion)... i.e. they add a bit more attack and "click" to the sound, (not "super-clicky" mind you... but just a touch more transient attack). A mandatory addition if you play "rock" music and want your batter head to last.

The picture clearly shows two white patches and the description states "2 pack", however when I recieved them there was one white and one black. The black one has a smoother surface and gives more of a slap or click, while the white one dampend the sound from my rubber beater a bit. I wanted two white ones and instead I have one white and one black. Now I need to go to my local music store spend more money on another pack so I can have matching pads. UNACCEPTABLE!

Comments about Remo Falam Slam Pad Kevlar Bass Drum Patch (2 Pack):

Overall, worth the money and it does promote longer bass drum batter head life. Just make sure its centered so when it wears you can move the bass drum head to an unused portion of the patch. It does take some of the attack away from the sound. I've used both wood and felt and overall it does a good job and I would recommend it.

Comments about Falam Slam Pad Kevlar Bass Drum Patch (2 Pack):

Came in black and white, seems to give a more punchy attack. Try with a wooden or plastic beater for some serious thump and click.

Comments about Remo Falam Slam Pad Kevlar Bass Drum Patch (2 Pack):

These are highly recommended, especially if you have expensive skins. Price kind of sucks but it is worth it in the long run. I love double bass drumming and I have log legs, especially from soccer. So I'm constantly pounding the bass skin. If it weren't for these impact pads, I would be broke.

        Hands down this Remo patch is the best impact pad on the market. Every other companies impact pads will wear though, but not the Remo Kevlar one! This bad boy will last you the life of the head. This really is the best that money can buy.

            Decent thickness, with a mellowing nature.
            The fiber's bedded in a soft polymer, making the striking tone warmer and focused.

                Double bass drummers take note - this is indeed a pack of 2, BUT they're 2 DIFFERENT versions - the white one most of us know, and a black one that is a totally different texture (which will affect beater sound and make both kicks sound different). I just wish the product description noted that...I would have ordered 2 packs. Now I have to run to a local store to get a matching pad.

                Other than that, these things are obviously a god-send. Must have product!

                    This was the best buy for the buck on the web. It functions as described. It protects your bass drum head. My only complain the pads used to be bigger. I use several different pedals so you are limited on how you adjust the pedals (they have to hit the same spot.)
