Nice coated skin, not too much rebound so more realistic than a straight rubber or silicone practice pad. I like the size, & what it lets you down on in the area of portability, it really makes up for when being able to practice brush technique too.
It's strong, sturdy and well made with good materials & the head is replaceable with any drum skin of your choice too. It does sound a little louder than a rubber pad but I bought this for its feel and for hand technique not sound reduction. That said it does well and is less noisy than some seriously pricey alternatives from the States.
I recommend it
