This is a great little practice pad to have in your bag when you are traveling or for when you are back stage waiting to go and perform.
It seems to be very durable and the quality of the pad is very good. However, one negative about the pad is that the area that you hit with your sticks is so hard that the rebound in no way compares to that of hitting a drum head. The pad is so solid that transferring what you do on the pad to a drum head can be difficult. With that being said, if you have an Evans Hybrid Head tuned up high, you are likely to transfer across with ease.
An added bonus to this pad is the ability to attach it to a cymbal stand or clamp mount. It seems too small to put in a snare stand.
With use you will start to see stick marks, but it is fairly easy to remove them. I would recommend cleaning it after every use in order to keep it in the best condition.
In all it is a good practice pad, good for technical exercises but if you are looking for a pad with a realistic feel then this probably is not the one for you.
