I have just added two new (and affordable!) practice pads to the drumshop website from reliable drumming brand, BASE.
We have had the BASE practice pads in stock for a while now but we wanted to get your opinion on them before we added them to our website. Everyone who tried them in store gave great feedback and commented on their natural stick response and also their bargain price compared to other practice pads on the market.
The BASE practice pads come in a choice of two sizes, 6" or 12" and are made from high quality materials. These durable practice pads provide you with a real-feel, natural playing experience thanks to the rebound rubber surface. Featuring a foam base, these practice pads wont slip or slide around whilst you're playing on a flat surface. The BASE pads also let you mount them onto a stand which makes your drumming experience feel even more real! These mountable practice pads are aimed at all drummers, whether you've been playing for 2 weeks, 2 years or 20 years, a practice pad is a great way to keep to up speed and perfect your drumming.
The great thing about these practice pads is that they provide muted playing, they're not too heavy and they don't take up too much room, (especially the 6" pad) meaning you can throw one in your bag with a pair of sticks and take them out on your break at work or on the train home and practice without going to too much effort!
You can check out the BASE practice pads below, which are listed under our Practicing Essentials page.
Take a look at the other gadgets and gizmos we have available for solo and group practice sessions including the drum dials and metronomes and a range of Drummers Educational Books & DVDs, ideal for self-teaching and practice in between lessons. Also, don't forget your ear plugs!
These drummers practice pads aren't the only BASE products that's available from drumshop. We also have a range of BASE hardware from snare drum stands, boom stands and even accessories like hi hat clutches, all coming to the drumshop website very soon!
