I've had this for a few weeks. It strengthens the attack on the bass drum, but it makes it almost sound like your hitting a piece of plastic. I use the felt side of my beaters, and they're alright. Using the plastic side, it sounds like clicking plastic with some bass. I wouldnt recommend this patch unless you play speed metal and use the plastic side of the beater so that each note is pronounced. It might sound better with a new head, considering mine is still stock, but it made the sound a little worse, so idk about that. The only thing I like is the strengthended attack. I hope to replace this with an Evans patch soon.

I bought one thinking the extra weight extra protection. Outer layer ripped and started falling off after four gigs. Plastic underlayment started double slapping. Needed something fast and thinking I could not wait with this sound I got another one at a local store. Placed new pad on and this time I got two gigs done before it started breaking down and leaving a residue on my DW 9000 beaters. I have over 126 gigs set up for 2014 so far so I need my bass pad to last. More weight equals a heavier plastic slap sound not more protection. I have used EVANS double before and it outlasted the bass head. I am buying EVANS from now on.
It is your money and your time and as I see it spend a little more now and save a lot later.

      I have been using this item for years and haven't looked back. Although they break after a year or two, it is worth it.

      Comments about Gibraltar Double Bass Drum Impact Pad:

      I am returning back to drumming and finding the "sound." This impact pad (with metal disks) greatly increases the projection of the bass. To me, much better than non "clicker" pads.

      Comments about Gibraltar Double Bass Drum Impact Pad:

      Sounded good when I got it. Had a real good punch sound to it with a felt beater. After a month though it started to fall apart. The black plastic coat started to crack then one of the aluminum plates fell out while I was at band practice and luckily not a gig. I have an evens felt pad on my other set and that has held up over a year. Im actually waiting for the head to give up before that pad does.

      Nice sound but...

      By Anonymous

      Comments about Gibraltar Double Bass Drum Impact Pad:

      I used to use a Falam Slam, but I didn't like the fact that it took away from the attack of the head. I bought this because I thought it would be perfect for the sound I wanted to achieve and it does the job. It's not as clicky as I thought it would be, more like an immediate attack really. This patch makes your bass drum very articulate and gives off the perfect sound for rock and metal. The only bad thing I've found is that it kills the rebound more than other patches, but that's nothing a tighter spring can't fix. Overall, I'm more than statisfied with this product.
