      OVERVIEW

      A portable and practical pad for short warm-ups or a full workout.

      The Strap-On Pad from Ahead was developed to offer drummers and instructors a more portable alternative to conventional practice pads as well as a reduced-volume, practice instrument for drumset, concert and marching drumming. Featuring a top-quality, gum rubber playing surface that provides a natural feel, the pad's stick response and controlled volume lets drummers and teachers focus greater attention on technical and musical development while also supporting hearing protection.

      The Strap-On Pad is quickly and easily secured to a player's upper leg using Velcro straps; eliminating the need for stands or table-top surfaces while accommodating both traditional and matched grip. In this convenient position the pad can be used for pre-show warm-ups, daily work-outs, lessons or solo and sectional rehearsals at home, in the studio and on the road.

      FEATURES
      • Gum rubber playing surface
      • Velcro straps

        Comments about Ahead Strap-On Practice Pad:

        I've been a drummer for over thirty years, started playing guitar a little over three year ago, bass about a year after that. Much of the time that I can devote to practice has went to bass and guitar. I decided that my drumming, while more than adequate for my church gig, was kind of stuck in neutral. I researched practice pads and the Ahead looked perfect for my needs. That turned out to be the case. It is very sturdy without being overly heavy, has a nice and lengthy strap with velcro that should fit about any size leg. The rubber material in the playing zone is relatively big for a practice pad of this type and offers rebound close to a real drum while being relatively quiet. It has really been a great aid as I'm working on rudiments that I never bothered to learn and is having a positive affect on my playing.

              Comments about Ahead Strap-On Practice Pad:

              This is an amazing practice pad. Not only is the leg strap ultra convenient, it's comfortable too - the leg side is super padded. The body of the pad is solid metal - crazy durable. The practice pad itself is a thick rubber that responds almost exactly like a snare drum, and it's very quiet and the pad hasn't gotten marked up by my sticks at all. Definitely worth the price considering how well it's built and how well it works - I expect it to last a long time.

              What my son likes most about this pad is that it is completely portable. He can take it anywhere and use it anytime. It's built sturdy and the rubber has a good rebound to it. I can already see his hand speed improving.

                    Solid metal base will last forever, perfect amount rebound from pad, heavy-duty velcro straps wont break anytime soon, unit stays put...doesn't move around when using, consistent rebound across entire pad surface, very quiet...you feel the strikes more than hear them.
