      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.

      I've been using these Remo Falam Slam patches since they were first introduced to the market. They come in two colors, white and clear. The consensus seems to be that the clear ones are harder and provide more attack than the white, although Remo has never stated such. The big gripe here is that these 2.5" patches are not nearly as good as the original 4" patches.

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

        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.)

                            Bought these for my fifteen year old metal head. Definitely worth it. He popped thru the last bass head within days of getting his double bass pedal. Now the new head will last much longer

                            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.
