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's alright

It's an OK pad. The rubber on the top isnt "real feel" I think it feels TOTALLY synthetic. I really don't like it.

          Comments about HQ Percussion 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!

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

          I have rated this product as 5 stars because it produces stick rebound that is extremely close to that of actual drum heads, which makes it especially perfect for practicing rudiments. Plus, the larger 12" size fits neatly into any snare drum stand.

          If you buy this practice pad, it will be money well spent.

              I was hesitant to order this pad, given it looks different from the Real Feel pads I have played over the course of my life. I am glad I made the purchase. Despite the slightly different appearance, the pad remains true to the original pads that I played fondly for so long. The pad is sturdy, feels like the original, and is great for regular chop workouts, practicing rudiments, etc. Highly-recommended. I switch between this and my MoonGel pad, depending on how much I want to work my chops.

                    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!!!!!!!!!!
